Big Data Summit 2018 Registration
The Big Data Summit 2018, hosted by NERSC, will feature results from advanced Data Analytics and Management projects on the NERSC Cori system. We will feature ongoing projects being led by NERSC, Intel, Cray, and five Intel® Parallel Computing Centers (Intel® PCC)—represented by Oxford University, University of Liverpool, University of California – Berkeley, University of California – Davis, and New York University. The event will be comprised of plenary speakers, technical and invited talks, and a poster session. To register, please complete the form below.

This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required (registration deadline July 11, 2018). Attendees will cover their own meals (cafeteria available on site). Beverages will be provided throughout the day by NERSC.
