ERNSuperComputing 2018

The Supercomputing 2018 (SC 2018) took place in Dallas, Texas on November 11 – 16, 2018. As part of the conference, Thomas Johnson III, a student supported by the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) program at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) participated as a student volunteer with SC18.

Dr. Linda Hayden, Principal Investigator for CERSER and Associate Director of the Workforce Development Program for SGCI also attended SC18 and assisted with HPC Cloud Hack.

The goal of the SC18 Cloud HPC Hack was to provide an enhanced fun learning experience at SC18. The hack ran from the morning of November 12 through the evening of the 13th. The Hack was a hands-on team cloud HPC experience and offered a flexible schedule so that participants could also attend SC18 activities. There was also a hack-HQ with hacksnacks, hacktorials, hackprizes, hack showcase, and lots of hackfun. SC18 was an ideal place for this Hack, with over 12,000 attendees who come together to discuss, learn, and exchange ideas about all things HPC and research computing. The hope was that this would be the first of many Hacks focusing on the research HPC computing space.
