Georgia Tech Dominates at Premier Conference for Parallel Processing

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is a leading international community that aims to integrate mathematics with science and technology to create solutions to real-world problems through conferences, publications, and workshops. Its premier conference for the exchange of updates and best practices in the field of parallel processing research, SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing 2020 (PP20), begins today in Seattle, Washington and will run until Saturday, February 15.
Georgia Tech leads this year’s conference presence with 28 different forms of engagement from 25 researchers across units including the School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE), School of Computer Science (SCS), and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).
Georgia Tech’s presence includes an invited plenary talk by SCS Associate Professor Hyesoon Kim that discusses different ways to apply and evaluate modeling techniques for heterogeneous computing systems; a poster presentation by GTRI researchers Micah E. HalterKun Cao, and James Fairbanks that proposes a theory-based framework to facilitate a more ideal workflow in scientific development processes; and a presentation by CSE Professor Ümit Çatalyürek and Ph.D. student Abdurrahman Yasar at the SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing, which is co-located with SIAM PP.
“The SIAM conference series as a whole is fantastic because its content is focused on peoples' latest work rather than published technical papers. Because of this content focus, SIAM PP's sessions can create more interaction and spawn new ideas,” said Senior Research Scientist Jason Riedy who is set to present at several sessions throughout the week, including one session focused on providing updates from the Rogues Gallery.
The Rogues Gallery is a test bed established by Georgia Tech’s Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies (CRNCH). The project was initiated in an effort to develop an understanding of next-generation hardware, with an emphasis on unorthodox and uncommon technologies. 
Other notable tracks in which Georgia Tech researchers are both organizers and presenters include:
