Recognized as one of he top regional high performance computing events, the Symposium features a wide array of panel discussions and tutorial sessions on research, education, and best practices.
Special sessions also are designed specifically for students, who will have the opportunity to learn about careers in the field of high-performance computing, and about interview, presentation and resumé skills. This year RMACC will be hosting a virtual poster competition for students (graduate and undergraduate) interested in high performance computing. This online venue enables students to share the results of projects that they have performed, while also engaging in a competition for the best posters.
