- A Brief History of High-Performance Computing (HPC)
XSEDE has affiliations with several organizations. We describe a few of these below.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) annual conference, most recently held as XSEDE16 in Miami last July, is transforming into an independent entity designed to unite the high-performance computing and advanced digital research community. PEARC17 will welcome all who care about using advanced digital services for research. PEARC17 will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 9-13, 2017.
Did you know?
PEARC deadline extended to March 13!
The technical paper (Technology; Software & Data; Workforce, Diversity, and Evaluation; and Accelerating Discovery) submission deadline for the inaugural PEARC Conference has been extended one week to March 13, 2017. Technical papers must be submitted through the PEARC17 EasyChair site at pearc.org.
Service Providers (SPs) are projects or organizations that provide cyberinfrastructure (CI) services to the science and engineering community. In the US academic community, there is a rich diversity of Service Providers, spanning centers that are funded by NSF to operate large-scale resources for the national research community to universities that provide resources and services to their local researchers. The Service Provider Forum is intended to facilitate this ecosystem of Service Providers, thereby advancing the science and engineering researchers that rely on these cyberinfrastructure services.
The XSEDE SP Forum is an annual event which brings together lead staff from each SP to engage in an open forum for discussion of topics of interest to the SP community. The SP Forum is also intended to establish and maintain a formal communication channel between the SP Forum members and the XSEDE project.
The XSEDE Campus Champions program is probably the single most effective way to reach out to new user communities. The Champions currently number more than 200. They are distributed throughout the United States and hold positions in a wide range of areas and disciplines. Champions share one thing in common; they believe in the power of high-performance computing to solve many of the most important problems we face today, and XSEDE advanced computing resources are the fastest and easiest way for new users to make an impact.
XSEDE Advisory Board
The XSEDE Advisory Board (XAB) currently includes 13 members of the XSEDE community. The XAB meets several times each year. The goals of the XAB are to ensure that XSEDE:
- Is designed to impact a broad range of disciplines,
- Enables both research and education,
- Has broader impacts on society,
- Has a user community that is diverse (gender, ethnic background, etc.) and
- Includes representation from all types of colleges and universities.
Senior Management Team
The Senior Management Team (SMT) consists of 12 members who meet on a bi-weekly basis to assess XSEDE project status, plans, and issues.
Science Gateways Community Institute
Science Gateways are becoming more popular among more discipline-specific research communities because of their standardized user-friendly interface to advanced computational resources. This significantly reduces the learning curve for many of our new users.
The HPC (High-Performance Computing) University is a web portal providing access to hundreds of educational resources and supplementary training artifacts making it a "one-stop-shop" for all things HPC. If you want to learn anything about HPC, we recommend starting here.
When you have time, please respond to the New Staff Guide Feedback Survey so your views as an XSEDE staff member can be included in this guide to make it the best it can be.
