Open OnDemand at SC'22 Conference

Open OnDemand Community:

The SC’22 conference in Dallas, TX is only a few months away (https://sc22.supercomputing.org/). Many members of the Open OnDemand team will be attending in person and we want to make you aware of a few things we’ll be doing:

  1. We’ll be having our usual ‘Open OnDemand User Group’ Birds of a Feather. The date and time haven’t been scheduled by SC’22 yet. Note that SC’22 BoFs will NOT be live streamed nor available via the SC’22 digital experience.

  2. We’ll have a lot of Open OnDemand content in the Ohio Supercomputer Center booth in the exhibit hall (booth 1403). Please plan on stopping by to get a live demo of OnDemand, share with us details of your OnDemand installation, or pick up some Open OnDemand swag!

  3. We are offering small “Open OnDemand Used Here” signs for other exhibitors to display in their booths. We hope to be able to raise more awareness of Open OnDemand by having lots of these visible throughout the show floor. If you are interested in having one in your booth please let us know.

  4. We potentially will be arranging some sort of Open OnDemand tour/scavenger hunt on the shot floor, where people visit a certain number of booths that are displaying the Open OnDemand sign in order to get a prize.

If you are going to be featuring or mentioning Open OnDemand in any of you booths or technical sessions, please let us know and we’ll be sure to highlight them in future communications.

I am Masahiro Nakao from RIKEN R-CCS, which has developed and operated the supercomputer Fugaku. Fugaku is one of the largest ARM-based systems, ranking 2nd in the June 2022 Top500.

We ported Open OnDemand to Fugaku. And we will have an exhibition at SC22, the location number is 1005, very close to you.
If possible, we would like to place the “Open OnDemand Used Here” sign on our booth.

Best regards,

Masahiro: Great! We’ll touch base sometime in early November with details.
