Berkeley Lab CS Area to Share Computing Expertise at SC23

October 13, 2023

Oct. 13, 2023 — The annual International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis 2023 (SC23) is just a month away, and Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences Area (CSA) staff are looking forward to making their way to Denver to meet with colleagues, peers, and industry to connect, collaborate, and exchange expertise. The event begins Sunday, November 12 and runs through Friday, November 17.

CSA researchers, scientists, and engineers are participating in tutorials, workshops, panels, technical papers, and posters as part of the conference’s technical program. In addition, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) booth – which showcases the 17 DOE national laboratories – will feature high-level talks and technical demonstrations from the labs throughout the three-day exhibit hall component of the event (November 14-16).

Connecting all the demos and booths to the outside world is the network known as SCinet, which at 6.71 Tbps will temporarily be the most powerful and advanced network on Earth. Multiple network engineers from CSA’s ESnet and NERSC teams are part of the volunteer workforce that designs, builds, tests, and operates SCInet over the course of the year leading up to and through the conference.

Notable events include:

  • “I Am HPC” Plenary Session – Panel discussion includes Kathy Yelick, Monday, Nov. 13, time and location TBA.
  • Featured Presentation, NERSC Director Sudip Dosanjh: “The Next 50 Years: How NERSC is Evolving to Support the Changing Mission Space and Technology Landscape,” Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2:30 p.m., DOE booth #243.
  • Student Cluster Competition, Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 13-15.
  • Top500 presentation, Tuesday, Nov. 14, 5:15 – 6:45 p.m.
  • Gordon Bell Prize Awards, Thursday, Nov. 16, time and location TBA.

Below is the current day-by-day guide to SC23 programming featuring CSA staff and resources.

All times are in Mountain Standard.
