March 13 — The XSEDE14 conference deadline for paper and proposal submissions has been extended one additional week until March 24 from the previous date of March 15. The XSEDE14 Call for Participation is available at: conferences.xsede.org/xsede14/call-for-participation.
XSEDE14 will take place in Atlanta from July 13-18, 2014 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis and will showcase the discoveries, innovations, challenges and achievements of those who utilize and support XSEDE resources and services, as well as other digital resources and services throughout the world. The theme of XSEDE14 is “Engaging Communities,” to engage both traditional users of digital resources and people who have not traditionally used digital resources but would benefit from their usage.
