Special note: Workshop attendees will be contacted via email and asked to rank their interest in attending the Track I and Track II sessions listed below. Every effort will be made to align attendees with their top session choices. After preferences are reviewed and processed, attendees will be notified of their assignments via email.

Track I Breakout Sessions: These breakout sessions are intended to give participants an opportunity for a more intimate and detailed discussion with the morning speakers. Format will be predominantly discussion/Q&A, so participants should come to the session with topics to discuss and/or questions. Topics could range from technical to career or job-related. If you are interested in facilitating one of these breakout sessions, please contact the conference organizers.

Track II Breakout Sessions: These breakout sessions are intended to give participants insight on how to gain access to Department of Energy high performance computing resources. There will be sessions for people new to high performance computing as well as experienced users looking to scale up their codes.
