2018 HiPerGator Symposium

It was our pleasure to invite members of the UF Research community to participate in the 2018 HiPerGator Symposium:

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
UF Informatics Institute

This year marked the fifth anniversary of HiPerGator, UF’s supercomputer for research. This symposium’s focus was to bring HiPerGator users together to showcase their research in a broad variety of disciplines, share their experience and results, and foster communication and collaboration among HiPerGator users.

The program consisted of 14 ten-minute lightning presentations in the morning and a poster session during and after lunch.
