2019 Exhibition

The Annual Exhibition wrap up for 2019 Research Computing Exhibition

MSI held the tenth annual Research Exhibition on April 16, 2019. The event included a panel discussion about careers in HPC-related fields, presentations by industry representatives about current and emerging technologies, and a judged poster session. Attendees were also able to take tours of MSI’s machine room and see visualizations created by MSI users at the Visualization Lab. View the Upcoming Research Computing Exhibition.
