PEARC17 Call for Participation

Managers, system administrators, user support staff, computational
scientists, students, and educators are invited to contribute to
discussions on the operation and use of campus and national advanced
research computing centers at the 2017 Practice and Experience in Advanced
Research Computing conference (PEARC17), which will be held in New Orleans,
July 9-13, 2017.

Call for Participation -- http://www.pearc.org/call-for-participation

With the backing of more than a dozen community organizations, PEARC17
provides a forum for community-wide discussions of research computing’s
challenges, opportunities, and solutions.

Submissions aligned with the conference theme of Sustainability, Success,
and Impact are particularly encouraged. The theme reflects key objectives
for the advanced research computing community—sustainability of the
infrastructure environment, measuring and ensuring success for
organizations that provide and use advanced research computing, and impact
of these technologies on the workforce, on science, and on scholarship.

PEARC17 seeks full papers or extended abstracts in each of four technical
tracks. Other participation opportunities include tutorials, posters, a
Visualization Showcase, Birds of a Feather sessions, and a student program.
Student poster and paper submissions are welcome. All submissions should
emphasize results and lessons derived from support of or use of advanced
research computing on campuses or provided for the academic and open
science communities.

The first submission deadline is March 6 for technical papers and
tutorials. Submission-related questions should be directed to
pearc17 at easychair.org.

Technical Paper Tracks

The Technology track will focus on technology and infrastructure
developments, practices, and experiences that enable increased performance,
capability, productivity, usability. or reliability of advanced digital

The Software and Data track will focus on practices and experiences related
to software and data environments that enable the effective and efficient
use of advanced research computing.

The Workforce, Diversity, and Evaluation track will focus on workforce
development and diversity efforts for engaging and sustaining a diverse
scientific, academic and industrial workforce in all fields of study.

The Accelerating Discovery track will emphasize practices and experiences
in enabling and facilitating research projects via advanced research


Tutorials give participants in-depth training in how to effectively use and
manage advanced research computing resources and services. Tutorials may be
proposed as full-day, half-day, or quarter-day sessions.


Posters should present new results or promising work in progress, ideally
aligned with topics that are relevant to the paper tracks and/or aligned
with the conference theme. Student posters are especially encouraged.

Visualization Showcase

The Visualization Showcase presents innovative digital imagery that
demonstrates the analytic potential of advanced computing technologies and
the transformative impact that such images have on scientific discovery.

Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions

BoF sessions are intended to engage attendees in informal discussions
devoted to topics drawn from relevant areas of the conference.

Student Program

The Student Program includes formal mentoring and networking events,
student-oriented tutorials, a day-long modeling activity, a volunteer
program, and opportunities for student papers and posters in the Technical

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) annual
conference, most recently held as XSEDE16 in Miami last July, has
transformed into an independent entity designed to unite the
high-performance computing and advanced digital research community. The
Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing conference (PEARC)
will welcome all who care about using advanced digital services for
research. The PEARC17 Conference will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana,
July 9-13, 2017.
