BOULDER - The continuing growth and future of high-performance computing will be the focus on the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium's (RMACC) fourth annual High-Performance Computing Symposium set for Aug. 12-13 at the University of Colorado.

The event is open to the public and will be held in the Wolf Law Building on the CU-Boulder campus.

The RMACC symposium is recognized as one of the top regional events on high-performance computing and brings together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students throughout the six-state Rocky Mountain region.

Those states include Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, New Mexico, Utah and Montana.

Patrick Burns, VP for information technology/high-performance computing at Colorado State University, serves as member of the RMACC executive committee.

"We have always done things - particularly big, groundbreaking things - better together than separately and individually," Burns said. "The RMACC is an exemplar in this respect, and allows us to gain knowledge and perform better in all areas of research computing due to this very effective collaboration with our distinguished partner institutions."

Registration fee is $150, which includes all sessions, materials and meals. Students can register for $30.
