Feb. 18 — Key deadlines for the XSEDE14 conference—taking place in Atlanta from July 13-18, 2014, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis—are approaching, including the date at which papers and proposals are due. The XSEDE14 conference 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.
