About the Event
TXWHPC brings together a diverse community of professionals in industry, academia, and government, from the advanced computing community across the state. HPC is one of many industries facing an uphill battle in diversity, so we’ll talk about the challenges and some ways to combat them. More diverse teams are more successful – make sure you’re among them.
