Collaborative Paradigms for Developing HPC in Constrained Environments

SESSION: Collaborative Paradigms for Developing HPC in Constrained Environments

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

EVENT TAG(S): Outreach

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Hensley Omorodion, Elizabeth Leake, Linda Akli



Computational science and engineering provides the potential for addressing many problems facing countries on the African continent. HPC in Africa is in its embryonic stage, and growth requires significant increases in resources. Challenges include increased investment in infrastructure, accompanied by increased scope and innovation in the basic STEM disciplines. The newly chartered Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing for Resource Constrained Environments (SIGHPC-RCE) provides a forum for industry, academics, and government entities for building partnerships, collaborations, and outreach initiatives towards addressing these challenges. We invite everyone interested in learning about and solving these problems to attend this session.

Session Leader Details:

Hensley Omorodion (Primary Session Leader) - University of Benin

Elizabeth Leake (Secondary Session Leader) - STEM-Trek

Linda Akli (Secondary Session Leader) - Southeastern Universities Research Association
