Here’s a nice report on the inaugural Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing conference by participants from the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI).
To all PEARC17 participants:
We want to thank you once again for helping to make the inaugural Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing conference a success. We hope it was everything you expected and more!In our last message to attendees, we wanted to pass along some final information that you may find useful:
The PEARC17 Proceedings have been published in the ACM Digital Library. Presentation slides can be found at slideshare.net (search for PEARC17) as authors share them. We will also be adding links to them on the PEARC17 website.
And don’t forget that commemorative PEARC17 polo shirts can still be ordered for a limited time from https://business.landsend.com/store/pearc.
Finally, we would like to extend a special thank-you to all of our exhibitors and partners and to attendees who opted in to receive emails from them.
Be sure to keep an eye on the PEARC18 site for next year’s event — www.pearc18.pearc.org.

Here are some of the informative, thought-provoking stories coming out of PEARC17:
How supercomputers are uniting the US and China – July 13 (ScienceNode)
Perverse Incentives? How Economics (Mis-)shaped Academic Science – July 12 (HPCwire)
Why Tech is Failing at Diversity and How It Can Succeed – July 11 (HPCwire)
Wednesday featured another fascinating keynote, compelling presentations in multiple tracks, and visits with exhibitors. Later, attendees checked out the Visualization Showcase, with some of the most computationally intensive simulations that have recently come from HPC systems, and celebrated with a true New Orleans-style party and Zydeco music.
Tuesday started off with a band, excellent keynote, poster prep, networking, and visits with exhibitors.
