ABSTRACT: All SC10 Conference attendees are welcome to join us as we begin the SC10 Education Program.
The Education Program is designed to introduce HPC and computational tools, resources and methods to undergraduate faculty and pre-college educators. The program also assists educators in integrating HPC and computational techniques into their classrooms and research programs. During SC10 the Education Program will host a four-day intensive program that immerses participants in high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. The program offers guided tours of the exhibit hall, focused hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather gatherings, as well as formal and informal opportunities to interact with other SC communities and exhibitors.
Dr. Robert Twilley, Vice President for Research at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, will address the topic, "Systems Ecology of the Mississippi River Delta: How Information Technology Can Reduce Risks, Enhance Resiliency, and Promote Restoration."
