"This BOF is for anyone interested in high performance computing for Humanities, Arts, or Social Science. High Performance Computing, and XSEDE, offer capabilities that enable new research and teaching methodologies for scholars in humanities, arts, and social science.
This Birds of a Feather session will offer the opportunity to discuss and learn about how others are using HPC in their research, especially with respect to text analytics, video analytics, and image analytics, but the floor is open for topics of participant interest. Additionally, this BOF will provide an update on the XSEDE science gateways that are being developed and being made available for text analysis, image analysis, and video analysis.
Science gateways offer a low barrier of entry to high performance computing. XSEDE is working with humanities scholars to create gateways to allow others to easily use a variety of tools with their own data.
Topics we will discuss related to the gateways include (but are not limited to):
• Current Status of the Gateways
• Use Cases for Gateways
• Potential Data Sources
• Anything the group would like to discuss
Whether you are in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, or you are supporting scholars on your campus in these areas, or you are just interested, we’d love to have you be part of the discussion.
The format of this BOF will be a ~20-30 minute presentation by Alan Craig (XSEDE HASS Specialist), followed by open questions / answers / discussion time with all attendees. As their schedules permit, representatives from current XSEDE Humanities Projects will also be present and share their work. There will be someone to take minutes and to track follow-up action items.
