The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) Workshop 2017 is nearing and with the Call for Sessions now closed and the agenda undergoing finalization, we are excited to announce that Al Geist of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will start the program with a keynote speech on “Exascale Computing Project - Driving a HUGE Change in a Changing World.”

Mr. Geist is a Corporate Research Fellow at ORNL and serves as the chief technical officer of the Exascale Computing Project, CTO of the Leadership Computing Facility, and chief scientist for the Computer Science and Mathematics Division.

In his keynote, Mr. Geist will discuss the need for future Department of Energy supercomputers to solve emerging data science and machine learning problems in addition to running traditional modeling and simulation applications. In August 2016, the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) was approved to support a huge lift in the trajectory of U.S. High Performance Computing (HPC). The ECP goals are intended to enable the delivery of capable exascale computers in 2022 and one early exascale system in 2021, which will foster a rich exascale ecosystem and work toward ensuring continued U.S. leadership in HPC. He will also share how the ECP plans to achieve these goals and the potential positive impacts for OFA.

We are also pleased to announce that the early bird deadline for registration has been extended to March 6, 2017. More information on registration and lodging can be found here.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
