Want to learn more about machine learning and artificial intelligence? Join me (and many Campus Champions) at PEARC19The Rise of the Machines (Learning) on July 28-Aug. 1, 2019 in Chicago, Ill. The event will also explore advanced research computing practices and experiences, which includes modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing.

As a member of the PEARC Steering Committee, we strive to enable a series of events that brings together the growing research computing community to discuss challenges, opportunities, and solutions that enable computational and data-intensive research. 

I will participate in a variety of sessions, including Campus Research Computing Consortium (CaRCC) Futures & Sustainability Town Hall; Campus Champions: Building and Sustaining a Thriving Community of Practice Around Research Computing and Data; and Leveraging a Research IT Maturity Model for Strategic Decision Making workshop. Internet2 is one of many sponsors showing their support for the HPC and advanced digital research community. I hope to see you there!

Until then, here is more information about PEARC19:
Registration for PEARC19 will increase on June 24, 2019 so don’t wait!! For more details or to register visit:

 Networking Events
While you are registering, don’t forget to sign up for one of our two special networking events offered on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Attendees will have a choice between a baseball game (Chicago White Sox vs. the New York Mets) or a riverboat cruise (as noted by one TripAdvisor reviewer, "If you only do one thing...this should be it!"). These special events are a great value and will provide a wonderful opportunity for you to network with your colleagues.
