Registration is now open for Confab23, to be held October 16 to 18 in Gaithersburg, Maryland!
ESnet’s second annual Confab gathering is designed for scientists across all disciplines who want to vastly improve their workflows and collaborations to accelerate time to discovery; for network engineers from national labs and universities who support science IT services for researchers on their campuses; and for the research networking professionals who partner with ESnet to move data across the world.
Last year’s inaugural Confab in Berkeley, held concurrently with the unveiling of ESnet6, was a fun and resounding success — and we believe Confab23 will continue and broaden the conversation we started.
Confab23 will showcase scientists who use ESnet today to perform real-time data analysis, leverage multiple supercomputers in parallel for large-scale simulations, and collaborate with colleagues on experiments as if side by side while thousands of miles apart – among many other applications.
Together we can chart the future of scientific data management and integrated scientific infrastructure.
In addition to lively conversation and informal technical discussions between our ESnet, DOE, and scientific community attendees, the program includes:
- Updates and discussions with the Department of Energy on major initiatives, such as the Integrated Research Infrastructure initiative and the High Performance Data Facility, that support our shared vision — that scientific progress will be completely unconstrained by the physical location of instruments, people, computational resources, or data.
- Scientific keynotes by Nicholas Schwarz on Light Source and BES developments, and Amadeo Perazzo, on LCLS and DOE HPC collaboration
- An overview of quantum networking activities by Inder Monga, part of a lively evening program
- And much, much more!
We will also hold a meeting of the ESnet Site Coordinator Committee at the same venue on October 19 and 20.
