Australasian Leadership Computing Symposium 2019


What is ALCS?

The 2019 Australasian Leadership Computing Symposium (ALCS) will be a unique event for the Australasian computational science community.

ALCS 2019 will be Australasia’s research supercomputing users’ forum, as well as a flagship promotion of high-performance computing (HPC) and high-performance data (HPD) in Australasia.

The symposium will run from the 6th to the 8th of November at the Australian Academy of Science – Shine Dome – and The Australian National University in Canberra,

ALCS 2019 aims to bring together scientists from five key computational science disciplines in Australasia. ALCS aims to share knowledge about HPC and HPD in practice within and across these powerful research communities:

  • astronomy,
  • genomics,
  • geosciences,
  • climate and weather, and
  • materials science.

ALCS 2019 will provide an opportunity for researchers to extend their networks, share leading practice, learn from their peers and build their understanding of the role of HPC and HPD in their current and future work.

The Symposium will feature guest keynotes from international speakers, as well as discipline-specific streams for deeper investigations of current scientific content.

Training will be held the day prior to ALCS – Tuesday November 5.
