Sharon Broude Geva, Director of Advanced Research Computing (ARC), will deliver a keynote address at PRACEdays16 in Prague, Czech Republic in May. PRACE, the Partnership forĀ Advanced Computing in Europe, has 25 member countries; its mission is to enable high impact scientific discovery and engineering research and development across all disciplines to enhance European competitiveness for the benefit of society. PRACE seeks to realize this mission by offering world class computing and data management resources and services through a peer review process. Geva’s talk is titled “Beyond Hardware: Scaling Up the Approach to Advanced Research Computing.” Abstract (excerpt): With the surge in disciplines and research communities using advanced research computing, the scope of required support for High-Performance Computing has expanded. It is no longer enough to provide hardware and the people to build it and keep it running. Facilitating the use of HPC and other technology by users with little experience in coding; creating academic programs for undergraduate and graduate students; training students, faculty, and staff to use new technologies; and providing consulting, programming, and visualization services are but a few of the aspects that Universities are called on to address.
