Please join us for the 2024 DARWIN Computing Symposium, sponsored by the Data Science Institute. This Delaware Advanced Research Workforce and Innovation Network (DARWIN) Computing Symposium event has served as the annual meeting for the NSF-funded DARWIN High Performance Computing (HPC) Resource since 2020. As the NSF project ended in September 2023, we will continue to expand the DARWIN Computing Symposium as a venue to showcase and develop regional partnerships for research computing.

With a goal to advance future computing needs for artificial intelligence, to reduce the overhead for domain scientists utilizing HPC, and to develop regional partnerships, the 2024 DARWIN Computing Symposium will feature panels and talks on DARWIN-enabled research, on computational and data-intensive (CDI) research/training needs, and on AI-focused CDI research more generally. These talks include the use of AI in HPC to advance sciences and predictive capabilities with societal relevance and new tools from the leading industry partners. Panel discussions aim at facilitating interactions between research software engineers and domain scientists to advance scientific progress in different disciplines. In addition, poster presentations by students and postdocs will highlight a number of relevant CDI research projects.

This day-long event will be held in-person at UD’s Star Campus in The Tower at STAR Audion from 8:30am-5:00pm on Monday, February 12, 2024.
