Welcome to PEARC18 – Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing
The theme of this year’s conference is Seamless Creativity. It is for scientists and engineers, scholars and planners, artists and makers, students and teachers, all who depend on the efficiency, security, reliability and sustainability of increasingly complex and powerful digital infrastructure systems.
PEARC18 will provide a forum for discussing challenges, opportunities and solutions among directors, managers, computational scientists, end users, students, educators, system administrators, user support staff, as well as industry and government agency representatives from around the world.
PEARC18 will offer tutorials, plenary talks, panels and in-depth technical content that will inform experts in the field while also providing introductions to the tools, technologies and methods of computational science to new users. The conference will feature a dynamic student program and diversity efforts, bringing together researchers, students, and prospective users.
We are delighted to have the conference in Pittsburgh this year and are looking forward to continuing the efforts put forth by the PEARC17 conference.
We hope to see you in Pittsburgh!
