Call for participation: Combined International Workshop on Interactive
Urgent Supercomputing (CIW-IUS)

When: Monday morning, 14th November as part of SC
Where: Room C148 in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas,
and also online

Interactivity enables the exploitation of HPC in new and revolutionary
ways, delivering many new and exciting opportunities for our community.
Urgent computing is one example, where combining interactive
computational modelling with the near real time detection of unfolding
disasters can aid in urgently responding to real-world problems,
ultimately saving lives and reducing economic loss. Whilst the
importance of interactive and urgent workloads on HPC could be
considerable for our community, supporting these requires expertise in a
wide range of areas and the solving of numerous technical challenges.

This workshop combines the InteractiveHPC and UrgentHPC initiatives,
bringing together stakeholders, researchers and practitioners from
across interactivity and urgent computing with the wider HPC community.
Aiming to identify and tackle obstacles, we will share success stories,
case studies and challenges with the goal of continued community
building around leveraging interactive HPC as an important tool for
urgently responding to disasters and societal issues.
