[Apologies for cross-postings…]
Please join MAGPI for the Advanced Networks and High Performance Computing: The Big Data Challenge Virtual Symposium to be held Thursday February 7 from 1-4pm EST.
Advanced research and education networks, such as Internet2, offer researchers and higher education faculty opportunities to connect to a diverse array of resources and "Big Data" and to collaborate with collaborators around the world toward some of the biggest challenges of our time across disciplines including genomics, bioinformatics, physics, and more.
The MAGPI Advanced Networks and High Performance Computing: The Big Data Challenge Virtual Symposium aims to present current areas of research, pedagogy, and information technology best practices to higher education and research faculty, staff and administrators. The keynote and breakout sessions during this half-day symposium are designed to demonstrate to faculty and practitioners the range of HPC projects and resources that exist and how advancements in the HPC space can be applied to their own teaching and research activities.
Participate in Two Ways:
INTERACTIVE IVC SITES: Select H.323 interactive spots are available for organizations that would like to host faculty and staff to participate live in the event.
