Who should attend Confab23?

The meeting will showcase scientists who use ESnet today to perform real-time data analysis, leverage multiple supercomputers in parallel for large-scale simulations, and collaborate with colleagues on experiments as if side by side while thousands of miles apart – among many other applications.

Why Attend Confab23?

"The theme for Confab this year is aligned with major new DOE efforts such as the Integrated Research Initiative and the High Performance Data Facility. These initiatives point to a future in which data, compute, and networking capabilities become increasingly interwoven to provide a seamless infrastructure for scientific discovery. 

Our goal is to convene as a diverse science and user-facility community, together with infrastructure experts, so we can successfully co-design this integrated science future together. That is why I am personally inviting you to attend Confab23, the second iteration of ESnet’s user meeting." 

— Inder Monga, ESnet Executive Director

Last year's Confab in Berkeley was a fun and resounding success, described by one attendee as a "huge step forward for ESnet's support and technology development."  

Let's continue the conversation this year in D.C. — and together chart the future of scientific data management and integrated scientific infrastructure!

This year's program is here.  In addition to lively conversation and informal technical discussions between our ESnet, DOE, and scientific community attendees, we look forward to seeing you for:
