2019 OLCF User Meeting
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Building 5200, TN Rooms A,B,C
May 21-23, 2019
8:00 AM – 6:00 PM (ET)
The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is pleased to announce the 2019 OLCF User Meeting will be held May 21-23 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN. The purpose of the annual user meeting is to share selected computational science and engineering achievements emerging from the OLCF’s user programs, to enable direct interactions among users, to advance the OLCF’s relationships with our user community, and to highlight computational requirements for the future.
The 2019 meeting will feature talks from OLCF users and application developers, giving our users the opportunity to share their scientific accomplishments and state-of-the art computational development methods on both Titan and Summit. The meeting will also feature plenary talks, panels, and center updates from OLCF staff.
Prior to the official start of the User Meeting (which begins on Tuesday), the OLCF will offer a separate training opportunity on Monday for those interested (see below).
We invite you to participate in an OLCF poster session and share your project’s achievements to date.
Attendees will be offered a tour of the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, including stops at the observation areas to see Titan, Summit, and EVEREST (the OLCF scientific analysis and visualization laboratory).
Elections will be held during the OLCF User Meeting for the open spots on the OLCF Executive Board User Group. More information about elections will be forthcoming.
Attending via Webinar
For participants who cannot attend on-site, a BlueJeans videoconference link will be set up for remote participation.
(Optional) Training Opportunity
On Monday, May 20 (before the official start of the User Meeting), the OLCF will offer a separate all-day Introduction to Summit workshop. If you would like to arrive a day early to attend this training event, please register separately using the provided link.
