SERConnect: SERC's Annual Workshop
SERC Auditorium
SERConnect is an annual day-long event to bring together Researchers, Experts and Engineers who are users of SERC facilities on a single forum. The objective is to provide an opportunity for the user community to present HPC aspects of their accomplished and ongoing work and foster dialogue and interaction among fellow members.

As part of this event, researchers belonging to the user group of IISc will be presenting their work with a focus on

  • Parallel design & implementation (domain decomposition, communication pattern etc.)
  • Scalability practices and results or What ails scalability, if not scalable, of the application<.li>
  • User experience with third-party software & tools - overall computation/communication requirement in the application for the third-party software/tool. Best practices, choice among alternatives
  • User application performance on architectures not available at SERC. Strategies for porting to future architectures.

  • The event is organized into 30 minute sessions by IISc Faculty, 20 minute presentations by students and three, 20 minute presentations by Grand Challenge users (link) who exploited the capability of SahasraT in 2018..
