OpenHPC activities at SC ’19

Just as in previous years, OpenHPC will once again be part of SC’19 in Denver. In addition to the OpenHPC booth (booth number 1875), we are inviting our users, contributors and members to our 2nd annual OpenHPC Community Happy Hour on Wednesday, the 20th of November from 5-7pm at the Otra Vez Cantina. New this year in collaboration with several of our project members, there will be an OpenHPC Lego Hunt which starts at our booth. For more details just visit us at our booth.

We are also planning to update the OpenHPC community about what has happened in the last year in our SC’19 Birds of a Feather (BoF) session on Wednesday, November 20th from 12:15pm-1:15pm in room 401-402-403-404. Please join us and let us know if you have any ideas how OpenHPC can be improved, what you do not like about OpenHPC and of course what you like about OpenHPC. We are looking forward to meet you at our OpenHPC Community BoF.
