We'd be delighted to have you participate. It's a great way to learn
what's happening on the High Performance Computing side of your
research area.

The Symposium is FREE and comes with meals and snacks, including a
FREE reception and poster session the evening of Tue Oct 3.

Last year's Symposium had 285 attendees (out of over 400
registrations), from 31 colleges and universities in 11 states,
44 private companies, 16 government agencies and 5 non-governmental
organizations. We expect at least as many this year -- probably more
... and we already have over 250 registered.

We're currently looking for people interested in participating, both
as attendees and also to present:

* breakout talks (30 minutes including questions);
* technical briefs (10 minutes including questions);
* posters (at the reception Tue Oct 3 5:30-7:00pm).

We're looking for talks, briefs and posters in any of a variety of
areas of Computational Science & Engineering (including computational
research in every field of engineering, physical science, biological
science, mathematics, social science and business), High Performance
Computing, High Performance Networking, Grid Computing, Data Mining,
HPC education and so on.

And, if you know of students -- graduate and undergraduate -- who are
interested in these areas, this is a great opportunity to introduce
them to conferences, especially because it's FREE. We especially
welcome talks, briefs and posters by students.

Also, if you know of colleagues that might be interested, please feel
free to forward this note to them.

We'll also have a vendor exposition, where you'll have an opportunity
to learn about existing and emerging HPC technologies.

If you're interested, see:
