2017 OLCF Users Meeting

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is pleased to announce the 2017 OLCF User Meeting will be held May 23-25 at Oak Ridge National Lab in Oak Ridge, TN.  The purpose of this user meeting is to share selected computational science and engineering achievements emerging from OLCF’s user programs, to enable direct interactions among users, advance OLCF’s relationships with our user community, and highlight their computational requirements for the future.  In addition, the OLCF would like to invite you to help celebrate the OLCF’s 25th anniversary.

The meeting will feature paired talks from OLCF users and application developers.
