RMACC Announcement

To All Mines HPC Users:

RMACC19, our annual regional High Performance Computing Symposium, 
is being held 

**May 21 2019 - May 23 2019**;

a bit earlier than in previous years.  There is still 

**plenty of time to register**:

** and for students to submit posters**:
https://rmacc.org/hpcsymposium/posters  .

The latter is an especially exciting opportunity for any students interested in HPC.  The winner of that poster contest can choose between an all-expenses-paid trip to SC19, or to PEARC19, both prestigious conventions in the HPC/Research Computing community.  Last year's winner was a Mines student (not the first Mines student to win this contest!), and he enjoyed a full ride to SC18 in Dallas, TX.  And scholarships are still available for student support!

RMACC (Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium) is our local HPC organization, of which Mines is a founding member. Aiming to represent the Rocky Mountain region, we now comprise 24 members from Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. RMACC serves members through meetings and interaction, vendor workshops, HPC seminars and networking opportunities.  The RMACC Symposium is one of the leading HPC regional events, bringing together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students from throughout the Intermountain Region.  This year's schedule can be found here: 



The RMACC Symposium (https://rmacc.org/HPCSymposium) features a wide array of speakers, panel discussions and tutorial sessions from industry and educational leaders.   This year’s event has four main tracks:  Software (User Facing); Machine Learning/Big Data; SysAdmin; and HPC.

The conference is on the main CU Boulder campus, at the Wolf Law Building (https://rmacc.org/hpcsymposium/location).   The general registration fee (which includes parking, all materials, meals and breaks) is $175.  Support from industry sponsors reduces registration fees for students (graduate and undergraduate) to $35.  Postdocs can register for $95, and a Thursday “tutorials only” option is available for $110.   Student scholarships to help cover registration fees and travel costs also are available.

Thank you for your attention and consideration, and we hope to see you at RMACC.  Information about SC19 is available at https://sc19.supercomputing.org/, and we will be in touch regarding Mines participation as this conference approaches.
