UMD to Host Booth at SC16

For the first time ever, the University of Maryland will be hosting a booth at the Supercomputing 2016 conference. SC16 brings together scientists, engineers, and researchers from the international community with a technical program full of presentations and tutorials. It is an excellent setting to meet other like-minded individuals with whom you can learn and share information. SC16 will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah from November 13 to 18. For more information on the conference, see the SC16 website.

The UMD booth will serve to showcase research and projects currently being performed at the University. Located in the exhibit hall, the UMD booth is number 4251, just look for the giant terrapin suspended from the ceiling.

We are also seeking UMD individuals (or their collaborators) that would like to speak at the conference or that would like to have their work represented at our booth. If you have posters, short videos, or a few powerpoint slides that show off your work, please contact kevin@umd.edu.

Booth presentations will be held on Tuesday through Thursday during the conference. The schedule of speakers is included below. Be sure to check back here for updates, as this list may change.
