             Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing and Cloud 

            held as part of IEEE/ACM SC19, Denver, CO, Monday – November 
18, 2019

The SuperCompCloud Steering Committee would like to invite you to the 
SuperCompCloud workshop hosted in conjunction with SC19. This workshop 
aims at bringing together group of experts and practitioners from 
academia, national labs, and industry to discuss technologies, use cases 
and best practices in order to set a vision and direction for leveraging 
high performance, extreme-scale computing and on-demand cloud 
ecosystems. Topics of interest include tools and technologies enabling 
scientists for adopting scientific applications to cloud interfaces, 
interoperability of HPC and cloud resource management and scheduling 
systems, cloud and HPC storage convergence to allow a high degree of 
flexibility for users and community platform developers, continuous 
integration/deployment approaches, reproducibility of scientific 
workflows in distributed environment, and best practices for enabling 
X-as-a-Service model at scale while maintaining a range of security
