SC16: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – November 14 -17, 2016, staff from the Institute for Cyber- Enabled Research represented Michigan State University (MSU) at the 28th annual supercomputing conference (SC16). It was another year of success!

iCER was fortunate to include Dr. Dirk Colbry and Dr. Brian O’Shea from the newly formed MSU Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE).  Much recruiting was done on MSU’s behalf, in search of candidates for CMSE and the MSU Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Summer Internship Program. 

During the conference, well over one thousand SC attendees stopped by the MSU booth.  Including MSU alumni, perspective faculty, potential students and future vendors.  Believing in the importance of educating the next generation, we also welcomed kids of all ages for the SC16 “Family Day.” New collaborations were inspired through the week-long networking opportunities the conference provided.

In addition to networking, SC16 provided a platform for idea sharing and staff training. Through different seminars, workshops and presentations, iCER staff was able to exchange ideas with experts in the high performance computing field from around the world. This knowledge makes them better prepared to serve computational researchers on the MSU campus.

SC17 will be held November 12-17, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. We are looking forward to continuing to make Spartans around the globe proud by highlighting the Spartan spirit in the high performance computing field and prove to the world, Who will? Spartans Will.
