I’m looking forward to the HPC Knowledge meeting in Barcelona, only two weeks from today. There are a still a few registration fee waivers available, so please register before the June 20 deadline!
HPCKM has a great agenda planned!
In addition to 16 amazing talks, they’re planning a tapas dinner, and a “beer and food pairing,” (forget the diet). Additionally, the entire group will have the privilege of visiting the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, home of MareNostrum 4, Spain’s fastest supercomputer at 11.1 Petaflops. It’s one of thirteen in the Spanish Supercomputing Network and one of seven capacity systems in the European cyberinfrastructure known as PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). Barcelona has the most beautiful data center in the world, hands down!
I’m especially eager to hear HPCNow! Chief Technology Officer Jordi Blasco Pallares’ talk titled,
“Dynamic Provisioning with sNow! Cluster Manager.”
sNow! cluster manager allows to dynamically re-architect/re-purpose the HPC solution to provision Singularity containers, Docker Swarm clusters, and OpenNebula private clouds. Their new approach accommodates those needs with zero hardware capability investment.
I’m presenting on Friday, June 22 at 9:00 a.m., and the title of my talk is,
“Chasing Unicorns in the Global Gig Economy.”
I’ll share strategies to recruit, retain and foster teams that possess the hard and soft skills necessary to support advanced technologies, while serving the ever-diversifying communities of practice who rely on HPC and data science to power transformative discoveries.
