BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 14 – The Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC) has scheduled its 9th Annual High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium for May 21-23 in Colorado. Open to the general public, the event will be held at the Wolf Law Building on the main campus of the University of Colorado Boulder.
This marks the first time the Symposium will be held in May, an effort to make the event more accessible to students to present research work that they have been doing during the academic year, said Becky Yeager, the RMACC’s Executive Director, and Symposium coordinator. A poster competition will give students the opportunity to showcase their research, and winners will earn an all expenses paid trip to either the PEARC19 conference in Chicago at the end of July or the Super Computing Conference – SC19 – in Denver in November.
The Symposium will feature a wide array of speakers, panel discussions and tutorial sessions with special presentations from nationally known keynote speakers and industry and educational leaders. This year’s event will offer four main tracks: Software (user facing); Machine Learning/Big Data; SysAdmin; and HPC.
Recognized as one of the top regional events on high performance computing, the Symposium brings together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students from throughout the Intermountain Region. RMACC members represent the major educational research institutions in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Wyoming, and five major governmental organizations: The Idaho National Lab, NCAR, NOAA, NREL, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
Registration (which includes parking) is $175 for all sessions, materials and meals. Support from industry sponsors reduces registration fees for all students (graduate and undergraduate) to just $35, and postdocs can register for $95. A Thursday “tutorials only” option is available for $110. Student scholarships to help cover registration fees and travel costs also are available.

Primarily a volunteer organization, the RMACC is collaboration among academic and research institutions located in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The RMACC’s mission is to facilitate widespread effective use of high performance computing throughout this 6-state intermountain region.
