Center for Research Computing

Notre Dame researchers will participate in Supercomputing 2017 (SC17), the international conference for High Performance Computing (HPC), networking, storage, and analysis. Throughout the event the Center for Research Computing (CRC) – which houses the University’s HPC section as well as Cyberinfrastructure, Research Development, and the Center for Social Research – will share their work with more than 10,000 attendees, including university researchers, computing industry staff, and more.

In discussing the value of the event, Jarek Nabrzyski, director of the CRC, said, “Every year this conference brings together a vast community, from educators to students, scientists to developers. The event offers an opportunity for all of us to connect and discuss cutting-edge technologies and stay up to date on computing research, which can be crucial for tackling environmental, health, astrophysics, and other research that requires the processing and use of big data.”

At the event, several Notre Dame researchers will present on a variety of topics. Nabrzyski will participate on a panel about virtualization ecosystems for complex scientific applications. Sandra Gesing, research assistant professor of computer science and engineering (CSE), will present at a booth and chair a meeting about the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI). Gesing will also act as chair of a workshop titled, “Workflows in Support of Large-Scale Science,” with Ian Taylor, research professor of distributed computing and data science, acting as general chair.

Peter Kogge, Ted H. McCourtney Professor of CSE, will present at two different Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions, as well as discuss his paper on migrating threads. Additionally, Kogge’s startup company, Emu Solutions, which was created with Jay Brockman, professional specialist of CSE and associate dean of community engagement and experiential learning, will showcase their newly developed computer at the conference.

Throughout the week-long event, the CRC’s exhibition booth will highlight several CRC-affiliated research projects, such as C-SWARM, the SGCI, VectorBase, and the Whole Tale Project, in addition to providing materials that provide an overview of the entirety of Notre Dame Research. SC17 begins on November 12th and will be held in Denver, Colorado. To learn more about the event, please visit
