XSEDE14 Conference

July 13-18, 2014
Atlanta Marriott Marquis
Atlanta, GA

The 2014 XSEDE conference will showcase the discoveries, innovations, and achievements of those who use, build, and support XSEDE resources and services, as well as those involved in related digital resources endeavors around the world. The theme of XSEDE14 is Engaging Communities, to engage both traditional users of digital resources and people who have not traditionally used digital resources but would benefit from their usage.  From experts in the field, to people who are novices to the applications of digital resources, the XSEDE14 Conference will provide a range of formal and informal opportunities for people to interact and address their diverse needs and interests.

We welcome you to considering submitting to one or more of the following categories in the XSEDE "Call for Participation."  Full details are available on-line at https://conferences.xsede.org/xsede14/call-for-participation. The sponsorship prospectus is available on-line at https://conferences.xsede.org/be-a-sponsor.

Papers: Submissions are sought for papers in the following four tracks, as well as on broader topics that span these areas. Authors are encouraged to address the Conference theme of Engaging Communities or the Technical Program focus of Collaborations with XSEDE or other CI Providers. All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and accepted submissions will be expected to address reviewer comments.

1)      Accelerating Discovery in Scholarly Research: This track will be about accelerating science, engineering, scholarship in the humanities, artistic endeavors, etc., by using advanced digital resources.

2)      Technology (Hardware and Systems Software): Technology is the focal point of this track. Submissions should present technology developments and capabilities that enable increased performance, capability, capacity, productivity, usability and/or reliability of XSEDE resources.

3)      Software and Software Environments (Gateways, Bridging, and Application Developers): This track will focus on the software and software environments built to enable efficient scientific computing solutions to research, collaboration, and education for one or multiple scientific user communities.

4)      Education, Outreach, and Training (EOT): This track will focus on EOT efforts for engaging and sustaining a diverse scientific, academic, and industrial workforce in all fields of study.

Posters: Posters should present new results or promising work in progress.  The topic should be related to the use of XSEDE, or other cyberinfrastructure providers, for scientific research and/or the development of new technologies for scientific computing that have the potential to enhance the capabilities of XSEDE resources or the broader XSEDE infrastructure.

Visualization Showcase: The Visualization Showcase delivers a digital representation of transcendent innovative imagery such as what can be accomplished via XSEDE's leading-edge technologies and the impact of transforming the future of scientific discovery.

Birds of a Feather (BOF): The BOF sessions are intended to engage attendees in exciting, informal, interactive sessions devoted to forward-looking topics drawn from the areas described in the submission guidelines for the conference.

Job Fair Employers: The Job Fair is an excellent opportunity for representatives from all types of organizations to meet talented individuals (including students) with backgrounds in computer science, computational sciences, systems administration, computer center operations and management, networking, user services, and other relevant fields.
