The prime yearly event at which SHARCNET researchers (faculty members, postdocs and graduate students) can meet and get direct input on how to put the computational power of SHARCNET to work for them through invited and contributed talks showing individual paths to success, and through the chance of talking one-on-one with programmers, systems staff and experienced users to get personal advice on methods, resources and SHARCNET special programmes.
Deadline for Registration -- Friday May 23rd
Deadline for Contributed Talks -- Friday May 16th
Deadline for Contributed Posters -- Friday May 23rd
Registration is free.
Early registrants will receive a SHARCFEST T-shirt.
We will have a lot of expertise in one room -- take advantage of it and bring a poster! Staff and experienced users will be on hand to look over your research poster and help you either get started or take your computational research to the next level. All posters are eligible for prizes of an iPod, Gift Certificate to Future Shop, USB Keys and SHARCNET caps and polo shirts.
