In the run-up to the SC19 conference, the 4th OpenPOWER Academia Discussion Group Workshop will take place in Denver on Saturday, November 16, 10am - 5:30pm.

This workshop will allow to bring together members of the Academia Discussion Group (ADG) and other developers using OpenPOWER platforms. The workshop will focus on supporting developers on OpenPOWER. It is the intention to bring together developers from different application areas of scientific computing, data analytics and AI. The workshop will promote exchange of results among participants, enhance their technical knowledge as well as skills and facilitate networking.

A large fraction of the OpenPOWER members are academic institutions. The ADG serves as a platform within the OpenPOWER Foundation for academic members as well as a platform for other academics interested in OpenPOWER. Current ADG membership comprises a broad range of academic institutions with strong competence, e.g., in providing and operating high-performance computing facilities or in developing scientific applications, scalable numerical methods, new approaches for processing extreme scale data or new methods for data analytics.
