Higher education and advanced research computing: an obvious match

Held from June 18 to June 21, CANHEIT-TECC is the largest gathering of Canadian campus IT leaders and advanced research computing experts. As an official partner of the event, Compute Canada is present on all fronts and several members of the Calcul Québec team are invited as speakers.

This year, the 670 participants gathered at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia to discuss safety, student success, leadership and partnerships, data, human resources, technology and trends.

Having access to resources and experts in advanced computing is a crucial issue for the higher education community. Compute Canada’s teams are taking advantage of this opportunity to reflect on the national platform for advanced research computing.

  • Julie Faure Lacroix is a panellist on Women in Technology Breakfast: The Evolving Role and Experiences of Women in Technology
  • Félix-Antoine Fortin gave a presentation on Jupyter, an open-source web application that makes it possible to create and share documents containing code, equations, visualizations and text.
