The PEARC18 conference, held in Pittsburgh, Pa., closed on July 26 after five days of tutorials, plenary and contributed talks, workshops, panels, poster sessions and a visualization showcase.
The annual Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) conference—with the theme Seamless Creativity this year—stressed key objectives for those who manage, develop and use advanced research computing throughout the U.S. and the world.
“We are happy that our efforts resulted in a very strong technical program,” said Sergiu Sanielevici of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, General Chair of PEARC18. “Participants shared comments such as, ‘The tutorials this year were terrific-my staff and I will share with everyone when we get back to campus.’ and, ‘The papers were very high quality, I had a hard time choosing sessions, all were of high interest and important to my work.’”
