The ACT Conference provides an opportunity for women in SETT from Atlantic Canada to share their experiences of studying and working in male-dominated fields, to network with others, and to develop action items with the goal of advancing women in SETT. We aim to Act, Celebrate, Collaborate and Transform! The conference aims to draw 100 – 150 women and their male colleagues in SETT from a cross-section of industries, education, government, and not-for-profit organizations.
Early bird registration opens on February 15, 2017. Please check out our website for more information.

HPCS (the High Performance Computing Symposium) is Canada’s premiere Advanced Research Computing (ARC) conference, bringing together top researchers from across Canada and around the world, as well as major industry partners.
This year’s conference is being held in Kingston, Ontario – June 5th – 9th, and will include a range of keynote sessions and technical workshops designed to appeal to the research community and ARC professionals. Topics will include “traditional” HPC disciplines, as well as emerging areas such as cognitive computing – and we’ll have sessions exploring future technologies.
You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the stunning and historic City of Kingston – Canada’s first capital. With 2017 being Canada’s 150th anniversary, it’s sure to be special. You’ll get to enjoy Old Fort Henry, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as tour the 1000 Islands aboard the Island Queen.
Please join us in Kingston for what we know will be a memorable HPCS! Visit us at 2017.hpcs.ca
