PEARC 2018

Dr. Srijith Rajamohan (srijithr@vt.edu) presented a workshop on ‘Introduction to Machine Learning with TensorFlow and Keras’. The purpose of this workshop was to provide a formal introduction to the mathematical concepts underlying Machine Learning. This was augmented by hands-on examples in the Machine Learning framework TensorFlow and the Deep Learning framework Keras.  The slides for this workshop can be found at https://srijithr.gitlab.io/post/pearc18/ .

Alana Romanella (aromanel@vt.edu) served on the executive committee as Diversity and Workforce Development Chair and Chair Emeritus for the Student Program.  She focused on promoting inclusivity through increasing individual diversity awareness skills and effective organizational systems that allowed for a more diverse conference.

Interested in joining us next year? PEARC19, will be located in Chicago from July 28 – August 1, 2019, and will explore the current practice and experience in advanced research computing including modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing.  A primary focus next year will be on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence which are proving to be disruptive technologies in a diverse range of scientific fields from materials science to medicine. https://www.pearc19.pearc.org/
