BOULDER, CO – The Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC) has set May 18-20 as the dates for its 2021 High Performance Computing Symposium and for the second consecutive year will offer it in a multi-track on-line setting free to all who would like to attend.

“With the uncertainty of holding in-person meetings due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this on-line option provides the best way for the RMACC to fulfill its mission of facilitating the widespread effective use of high performance computing throughout the intermountain region,” said Becky Yeager, the RMACC’s executive director and coordinator for the Symposium.

Primarily a volunteer organization, the RMACC is a collaboration among 30 academic and research institutions located in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The 2021 Symposium will be the 11th annual. Last May’s symposium was originally set to be in-person but was altered due to the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to generous sponsorship support, led by Intel, Dell and HPE, the event was offered free and more than 400 participants registered to hear two keynote speakers and participate in a full slate of tutorial sessions.

In addition to those same activities, an extra half-day to provide tutorials for those new to the HPC field is being planned for next May’s event. Another long-time tradition – a student poster competition for students to showcase their research – also will be continued.
