Start Time: 9:30 End Time: 12:30

This event brings together the community of RSEs working in High Performance Computing (HPC). The community covers a range of RSE roles from development of research software to support of HPC facilities, providing support to researchers. Our objectives are to provide peer support across the RSE HPC community, share experience and best practice, foster an open, self-sustaining community and collaborate with other, associated communities and organisations.

Call for presentations

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions for 10 minute presentations at the HPCRSE@RSECon24 Birds of a Feather (BoF) session at RSECon24 on Thu 5 Sep 2024 (0930-1230)

  • Submission deadline: 1600 BST, Tue 16 July 2024
  • Outcome notification: Thu 1 Aug 2024
  • Submission via the form here

There are two sessions within the BoF: technical/exascale and training/community but we welcome submissions on any topic of interest to the HPC RSE community. Please select the most appropriate session in the submission form. Presenters can present in person or online. If presenting in person, you must be registered for in-person attendence at RSECon24. If presenting online, you must be registered for online attendance at RSECon24.

Submissions will be assessed by the organising committee on the quality of the abstract and the broadness of the appeal to the HPC RSE community. Personal details collected through this form will only be used for the purposes of organising this event. For unsuccessful proposals, personal details will be deleted after decision notifications have been sent out. For successful proposals, contact details will be deleted after the event has taken place.


The aims of the event are to share knowledge about the current “state-of-the-nation” in HPC, discuss topics of interest in the community, understand community priorities and needs, create a forum for network building and provide peer support to HPC RSEs: particularly those new to the HPC area and those working without support from a large RSE group.

The BoF website, which will be updated with details, is here , with the RSECon24 session description here
