True Stories from High Performance Computing: Enabling the Improbable

SESSION: True Stories from High Performance Computing: Enabling the Improbable

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):William R. Scullin, Adam Yates, Jeff Hammond


Our experiences with High Performance Computing are highly varied and often exhibit great examples of achievement, technical and scientific ability, unmitigated disaster, unlikely achievement, and of course - humor. This BOF is a story slam in which individuals will have the opportunity to share their own true High Performance and Scientific Computing themed story. All stories will be limited to no more than five minutes, and while we permit names to be changed, all stories should be based on real life experiences. Session leaders will provide an introduction, guide speakers, and lead audience members in voting for their favorite stories at the close of the session. Those participants who shared favorite stories will be awarded Seattle themed gag-prizes.

Session Leader Details:

William R. Scullin (Primary Session Leader) - Argonne National Laboratory

Adam Yates (Secondary Session Leader) - Louisiana State University

Jeff Hammond (Secondary Session Leader) - Argonne National Laboratory
