Indiana University is leading the next of our highly successful bootcamps on Immersive Visualization software in conjunction with and hosted by the Emerging Analytics Center at University of
Arkansas at Little-Rock. Each bootcamp is a full two-day event (but spread over three days). The cost is $250/person — basically for food and minor expenses.

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.

A web page with further information and how to register is at: http://iq-station.org/bootcamp.html. Our host facilities are described at: http://ualr.edu/emerginganalytics/facilities. Questions can be sent to Bill Sherman at shermanw@indiana.edu.

The 2014 AITP Region 3 Student Conference is a gathering of students and faculty members/sponsors interested in computer related fields such as Information Technology, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, etc. In this three day event, students participate in numerous competitions against other students from AITP Region 3 schools (Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi). This year competitions are Network Design, Microsoft Office Solutions, PC Troubleshooting, Mobile App Development, Database Design, System Analysis and Design, Security Scenarios, and Java Programming. The conference is also provides an excellent opportunity to network with students, faculty and professional members, and event sponsors from all over Region 3. Participants must be student members of AITP ($30 per year) or professional members (about $125 per year). Discounted rates for faculty sponsors are also available.

Clusters have become the workhorse for computational science and engineering research, powering innovation and discovery that advance science and society. They are the base for building today’s rapidly evolving cloud and HPC infrastructures, and are used to solve some of the most complex problems. The challenge to make them scalable, efficient, and more functional requires the joint effort of the cluster community in the areas of cluster system design, management and monitoring, at hardware, system, middleware, and application level.

Missouri S&T will be hosting the fourth annual Research & Technology Development conference (RTD2014) on September 15-16, 2014 in Rolla, Missouri. Due to our partnership with corporate sponsors, the conference is free to attendees, but registration is required. In addition to extensive networking opportunities, this year’s conference will feature two days of useful workshops and presentations in each of three distinct research pillars: Computational Science, Large Data Visualization, and Additive Manufacturing. All three pillars are being presented by experts in the field across the Midwest.

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.
