Registration for the Spectrum Scale User group meeting at HPCXXL (formerly SPXXL) is now open.

  • Thursday September 28th
  • New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue, New York.

The Spectrum Scale day will require registration, so we can make sure there is enough room (and coffee/food!) for all attendees. However, there will be no registration fee if you attend the Spectrum Scale day only.

The agenda is still being worked on, here are some likely topics:

  • RoadMap/Updates
  • “New features – New Bugs“ (Julich)
  • GPFS + OpenStack (CSCS)
  • ORNL Update on Spider3-related GPFS work
  • ANL Site Update
  • File Corruption Session
