Agenda announced for PBS Works User Group Meeting

1 Jul 2015 Troy - Engineers, IT administrators, cluster managers, and users of high-performance computing (HPC) systems will have the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with the best minds in supercomputing at the 2015 PBS Works User Group Meeting, September 14-17 in Silicon Valley.

The four-day event includes two days of presentations and panel discussion book-ended by two days of free hands-on training workshops:

  • September 15 and 16: User Group Meeting (location: Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California)
  • September 14 and 17: Workshops on PBS Professional, Computer Manager, Display Manager and PBS Analytics (location: Altair office in Sunnyvale, California)

The PBS Works User Group Meeting is attended by executives, IT administrators, business managers, scientists and R&D professionals using PBS Works products. The agenda includes presentations by PBS Works users, Altair executives and technology leaders, as well as discussion forums with the entire PBS Works product management and engineering teams.

The current speaker list features HPC thought leaders from around the globe, including:

  • James Scapa, Altair Founder and CEO
  • Bill Nitzberg, Altair PBS Works CTO
  • Keynote Speaker: Satoshi Matsuoka, Professor, Global Scientific Information and Computing Center and Dept. of Mathematical and Computing Sciences, Tokyo Institute of Technology
  • Simon Burbidge, HPC Manager, Imperial College London
  • Thomas Leung, HPC Principal Technologist, GE Global Research Center
  • Joseph Lombardo, Executive Director, UNLV National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the Environment
  • Rogério Santos, Researcher, Researcher, Embraer
  • Joseph Swartz, Programme Chief Scientist, Lockheed Martin
  • Dale Talcott, Operating Systems Analyst, NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division
  • Andrew Wellington, Senior HPC Systems Administrator, National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), The Australian National University

More speakers will be finalized over the next month, and the final agenda will be published in late July.

The event will also feature two discussion panels with Altair PBS Works product managers and engineers. "These open forums are really valuable for both users and Altair", according to Bill Nitzberg, PBS Works CTO. "Attendees can learn about our plans and give truly uncensored feedback directly to the engineering teams. It's a great chance for the whole community to learn from each other."

Current sponsors for the 2015 event include Intel, Cray and HP, and attendees will see these HPC technology experts answer their audience-submitted questions in a Q&A Panel moderated by Rich Brueckner.

"I've attended these PBS Works meetings in the past and the speakers are always top notch", stated Rich Brueckner, President of insideHPC. "The talks spark the kinds of questions and knowledge exchange between users that you can’t really get anywhere else."
