Kitware has been a long-standing participant in the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC20). As Supercomputing goes virtual this year, we remain committed to this community and plan to stay connected ‘everywhere you are.’

Kitware will be participating in the now virtual ISAV 2020 workshop, please find the details below. Further updates regarding our involvement at SC20 will be coming soon.

ISAV 2020: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-scale Analysis and Visualization

Thursday, November 12 from 10 AM – 6:30 PM EST (Virtual)

The HPC community has become increasingly interested in in-situ analysis and visualization. Cost savings, increased accuracy, and the ability to use all available resources (CPUs and accelerators) are just some of the contributing factors.

This workshop brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners from industry, academia, and government laboratories. These professionals are responsible for developing, applying, and deploying in situ methods in extreme-scale, high-performance computing.

The goals of this workshop are to:

  • Present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related to developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across various applications in HPC environments.
  • Discuss important topics such as opportunities presented by new architectures, existing infrastructure needs, requirements and gaps, and experiences to foster and enable in situ analysis and visualization.
  • Serve as a ‘center of gravity’ for researchers, practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and infrastructure in the HPC space.
Patrick O’Leary, assistant director of scientific computing at Kitware, serves as the at-large chair for this workshop.

pyHPC 2020: 9th Workshop on Python for High-Performance and Scientific Computing

Friday, November 13 from 10:00 AM- 5:40 PM PM EST (Virtual)

Python remains one of the fastest-growing programming languages with large communities of users in academia and industry. Its high-level syntax lowers the barrier to entry and improves productivity, making it the “go-to” language for data science and machine learning. It also remains increasingly popular in high performance and distributed computing.

PyHPC returns to Supercomputing to connect researchers, developers, and Python practitioners to share their experiences using Python across a broad spectrum of disciplines and applications. The goal of the workshop is to provide a platform for the community to present novel Python applications from a wide range of disciplines, to enable topical discussions regarding the use of Python, and to share experiences using Python in scientific computing and education.

This workshop aims to help address the needs of the HPC community and to help shape future directions in high performance and scientific computing.
