ACM presents PEARC22, July 10-14 in Boston

BOSTON, December 16, 2021 – We are pleased to announce the return of the ACM PEARC22 (Association of Computing Machinery, Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing) in-person conference and celebration of advanced research computing. PEARC22 will be held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, July 10-14, 2022. The conference theme: Revolutionary: computer connections, you, recognizes rapid shifts that have become a constant in advanced computing, the role of the PEARC community in creating state-of-the-art methods, and our need — as individuals — to achieve an ethical and connected computing future.

While many key PEARC22 speakers will cover this theme, the conference will open with a keynote address by Ayanna Howard, an accomplished roboticist, entrepreneur, educator, and dean of the Ohio State University College of Engineering. Dean Howard’s career spans higher education, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the private sector. In May 2021, she was named an ACM Athena Lecturer in recognition of her fundamental contributions to the development of accessible human-robot systems and artificial intelligence, and her efforts to break new ground to broaden participation in computer science.

In addition, the ACM PEARC22 Technical Program Committee has issued its Call for Participation (CFP). While all entries are welcome that cover topics related to advanced research computing and data science, all entries consistent with one or more of these three technical tracks are of particular interest:

  • Personnel development, training, diversity and education
  • Applications and software
  • Systems and System Software

February 18, 2022 is the initial GVB deadline. Authors should plan to deliver their presentations in person at the July conference.

PEARC22 is led by General Co-Chairs Julie Wernert (Indiana University) and Alan Chalker (Ohio State University). “After a two-year personal hiatus due to the pandemic, we are extremely excited to reunite the research community in a safe and welcoming environment,” Wernert said.

The ACM PEARC Conference Series is a community-led effort that unites cyber infrastructure and research computing practitioners, developers and users by providing a forum for discussing ideas, findings, techniques, tools and experiences. The PEARC conference welcomes a wide range of participants and provides a diverse, equitable and inclusive conference experience. PEARC encourages the submission of technical research papers, short papers, panels, workshops and posters on topics of interest to the research computing community.
