UPDATE (04/22): Due to limited time, we will split this tutorial into two sections. The first section (still planned for Thursday, April 25, 2024) will focus on introducing attendees to Chameleon and its primary functionality for artifact/experiment packaging and orchestration. The second section (planned for June 2024) will focus specifically on special topics for HPC experiments (Effective Data Management and Leveraging MPI and CUDA). We will send out an additional announcement when we have a date for the second section. Thank you for your understanding!

Chameleon at SC '23

We would like to congratulate Alicia Esquivel Morel and the team for the acceptance of their paper, AutoLearn: Learning in the Edge to Cloud Continuum, to the SC '23 conference as well as two summer REU students who had posters accepted to SC.

SC: The largest Reproducibility Laboratory

Today we share a very unique user experience -- a conversation with Rafael Tolosana Calasanz who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Informatics of the University of Zaragoza, Spain and has participated in the reproducibility initiative at SC. Rafael shares with us his experiences reproducing artifacts on Chameleon and his insights on reproducibility and its importance to the modern scientific process.
