NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

NERSC Data Day, Annual User Group Meeting Set for Sept. 19-21

Registration Ends August 28

August 23, 2017

NERSC’s Data Day and the 2017 NERSC User Group (NUG) annual meeting are being combined this year, giving NERSC users the opportunity to attend both in one venue. The three-day event will be held September 19-21 at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Shyh Wang Hall and Bldg. 50.

NUG 2017 will feature updates and plans from NERSC, science highlights, and talks from the recipients of the NERSC Achievement Awards, which will be announced at the meeting. NERSC Director Sudip Dosanjh and Doug Kothe from Oak Ridge National Laboratory will be the featured speakers.

Data Day, first held in 2016, is a data-centric event that brings together researchers who use, or are interested in using, NERSC systems for data-intensive research. This year’s event features the latest data-focused tools for scientific computing, training sessions on machine learning, Python, the Cori Burst Buffer and Shifter, and presentations from scientists who are already taking advantage of these tools in their research. Data Day concludes with guided tutorials and a half-day data competition hack-a-thon.

"We're excited to be combining our annual NERSC Users Group and Data Day meetings this year,” said Richard Gerber, Senior Science Advisor at NERSC. “It's a great venue for gaining insight into NERSC and its initiatives, the extraordinary science being produced by our users, and the tools and techniques being used in high performance computing and data analysis”

Registration for the 2017 Data Day/NUG event is free but necessary to ensure your spot. Click here to register. Registration is open through Monday, August 28.

For those who cannot attend in person the sessions will be broadcast live via Zoom.
