HEPiX 2019

HEPiX 2019

San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego
March 25- 29, 2019

The HEPiX forum brings together worldwide Information Technology staff, including system administrators, system engineers, and managers from High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics laboratories and institutes, to foster a learning and sharing experience between sites facing scientific computing and data challenges.

Participating sites include BNL, CERN, DESY, FNAL, IHEP, IN2P3, INFN, IRFU, JLAB, KEK, LBNL, NDGF, NIKHEF, PIC, RAL, SLAC, TRIUMF, many other research labs and numerous universities from all over the world.

Topics to be discussed will include:

Cyberinfrastructure partnerships: university research computing HPC centers, XSEDE XD providers, DOE laboratories, NSF Large Facility computing organizations and commercial cloud providers. Technologies, strategies, ideas, and discussions on how OSG can foster partnerships across the widest possible range of CI.

How high throughput computing accelerates research, and how OSG can help users scale up.

Usability challenges and solutions for distributed high throughput computing applications.

Connecting virtual organizations, campus researchers and XSEDE users to the OSG: command line, science gateways, and workflow frameworks.

Training and education workshops.

Serving more of the "long tail" of science with high throughput parallel computing: incorporating multi-core, GPU and virtual cluster resources into science workflows using shared and allocated distributed infrastructure.

Advanced network analytics services for national Science DMZ infrastructure.


Registration rates include a continental breakfast, am/pm coffee breaks, Monday reception & Wednesday dinner. Lunches will not be provided.
