NCSA is one of the world's leading centers for applying technical and computing innovation to real-word problems. NCSA's Private Sector Program is a partnership among more than 26 private, university, and public organizations with the shared goal of accelerating science, engineering, and productivity.
PSP Partners should plan to arrive Monday afternoon/early evening for the opening reception. A partner-only meeting will be held Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. The public portion of the annual meeting will begin with lunch at noon Tuesday and continue through Friday mid-afternoon.
Thematic ideas this year include:
accelerating science, engineering, and productivity with an Eye on ROI
sustained petascale applications
high-performance industrial workflows
complex data integration
pushing BIG data
convergence of HPC and non-traditional technical resources
software infrastructure for sustained innovation
multi-sector demand for advanced tools and insight, and more.
