“Supercomputing in Plain English” is a workshop series on High Performance Computing (HPC) that is designed especially for people with a solid understanding of their own domain Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) discipline, but modest experience with computing and little or no experience with advanced computing. We use analogies, storytelling and play, rather than doing deep technical dives, to discover the key concepts of advanced computing. Prerequisite: 1 semester of programming experience/training/coursework in one or more of C, C++, Fortran and/or Java, recently.

The overall theme is a how-to session for open-source visualization software in VR (leaning toward CAVE-style). Some of the software is Unix-variant oriented, and a handful will work on Windows. Presentations are geared toward teams that make immersive facilities available for scientific analysis, and for scientists seeking tools that can help them take advantage of existing facilities.

Over the past decade, we’ve had over 3000 attendees from 106 academic institutions from 27 US states and territories, 129 private companies, 36 government agencies (federal, state, municipal, foreign) and 19 non-governmental organizations. The 2013 Symposium had 263 attendees, from 29 academic institutions in 10 states and one other country, 25 private companies, 9 government agencies and 5 non-governmental organizations.
Each pillar will contain two days of workshops, hands-on demonstrations and expert talks. RTD’s famous social – the street party with BBQ, fireworks, music, and beer and wine tasting – gives you unlimited opportunity for networking and good times. Our attendees will also include experts from industry to answer your technology questions. This free event will be held on the S&T campus in Rolla, Missouri at the Havener Center on September 15 & 16. Space is limited and attendance has been capped at 350 for RTD2014.
