Mississippi ranks among the top states in the country for high performance computing, and for the first time,
a statewide conference will bring together the Magnolia State's professionals and students in the field. The
Mississippi High Performance Computing Conference will highlight how Mississippi-based research computing drives
innovation and career opportunities in this growing field. Join us March 26-27 at Jackson State University as
we kickstart a dialogue between Mississippi universities and employers about HPC workforce needs, and enjoy
opportunities for networking, technical exchange and discussion.
The two-day conference is open to professionals across the state working in high performance computing, as well
as computer science faculty and students looking to learn more about the many career opportunities available in
Conference sessions will include keynotes from HPC leaders, as well as sessions on topics such as HPC workforce
development, , HPC at institutions of higher learning, and current research being advanced through HPC. Students
will have the opportunity to network with peers and potential employers while learning about student competitions
and participating in an interactive workshop on parallel computing.
We look forward to gathering Mississippi's high performance computing community for the inaugural Mississippi HPC Conference!
The Mississippi High Performance Computing Conference will be held at Jackson State University's College of Science,
Engineering and Technology, with most sessions taking place in Auditorium #100 and the Brig. Gen. Robert Crear Atrium.
