Arm HPC User Group Returns to Denver Nov. 18

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Arm HPC team invites you to our 5th Annual Arm HPC User Group (AHUG) session at SC19. The all-day event takes place on Monday, Nov. 18 at the Curtis Hotel in Denver.

We have a full day agenda of strategic partners and end-users from all regions of the world sharing their experiences, best practices, plans, ecosystem advances, and results on Arm-based platforms for HPC applications.

The goal of this event is, as always, to candidly share and network among the growing number of users and sites that are deploying Arm for HPC and to highlight the work of the many leaders in this area. While the agenda at SC19 is fairly USA heavy, we have great representation of EU, JAPAN, and UK as well. Furthermore, we will be delving in to the future of the Arm HPC User Group and how the leaders in this community can have even greater influence and an expanded role for the Arm HPC ecosystem.

What: ARM HPC User Group
When: Monday Nov. 18
Where: Curtis Hotel, 1405 Curtis Street, Denver, Colorado

The current agenda for this event is listed below. Registration is free and we ask that you register prior to the event so that we can get a head-count estimate of attendees.
