ACCESS at SC23

Will you be at SC23? This year, the large supercomputing conference known as SC will be held in Denver, from Sunday, November 12 to Friday, November 17, at the Colorado Convention Center. ACCESS will have a booth at the conference, and our team will be presenting at several events. Here is a list of all the ACCESS-affiliated content at SC23:

ACCESS at Booth 219

You can find a map of the exhibits here. This year, ACCESS will be a part of the SC23 Student Scavenger Hunt, so if you have a Scavenger Hunt passport card,…hope you answer our clue correctly so we can award your sticker! In addition, ACCESS will be hosting its ACCESS the Experts series on Tuesday, with a high concentration of experts and Principal Investigators (PIs) for each of the service teams on hand to answer questions (full schedule below). ACCESS will continue to have a booth full of experts throughout the duration of the conference who can answer your questions.

We’ll also have some goodies for visitors to the booth to take home.  Stay hydrated at Denver’s high altitude with a very packable foldable water bottle. We’ll have stickers and a booklet highlighting just a few of the many accomplishments and science highlights enabled by ACCESS over the past year.

Finally, Booth 219 isn’t the only place where you can learn more about ACCESS. ACCESS Resource Providers will also be at SC23, and their booths have exciting events planned as well. Here’s a list of ACCESS Resource Provider booth locations:

OOD is extremely relevant to ongoing discussions within the HPC community about user interfaces and science gateways. The session leaders, all part of the OOD development team, will jointly develop the content for the presentation in advance to ensure a wide range of viewpoints and topics are presented. We will also consult with our user advisory group in advance for their suggestions.

BOF: The Future of NSF-Supported Advanced Cyberinfrastructure

5:15 – 6:45 PM, Room 205-207

  • The National Science Foundation’s vision and investment plans for cyberinfrastructure (CI) are designed to address the evolving needs of the science and engineering research community. Senior leadership and program staff from NSF’s Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) will discuss OAC’s vision, strategic and national priorities, as well as the latest funding opportunities across all aspects of the research cyberinfrastructure ecosystem. Substantial time will be devoted to Q&A between attendees and NSF staff.

  • In this session, the ACCESS Resource providers (RP) will give an overview of the available resources and their unique characteristics. Those resources are open to a broad audience of computational researchers. Individuals can apply for allocations by submitting a request to ACCESS. Once this request is approved, they can exchange their awarded service units for resources at one or several of the providers (e.g. node hours, GPU hours, storage). The presentations in this BOF will highlight the variety of available resources and will be followed by a discussion with the community, allowing the audience to directly interact with the RPS. You can submit questions about the RPs here prior to the event.
