Time: 9:00am – 10:00am PT
Duration: 1 hour

Containers are becoming a critical component of scientific research, letting researchers easily share, scale, and reuse tools to tackle high-performance computing workloads.

Join our panel session to learn how the use of containers benefits researchers and IT administrators at supercomputing sites and labs across the country. Our panel of experts will weigh in on their experience deploying containers to streamline their workflows.

Hear from the panelists about:
  • Challenges they face when building apps and managing HPC clusters
  • Why they started using containers and what benefits they have experienced
  • The advice they can offer for their fellow researchers and system admins
Join us after the presentation for a live Q&A session.



You will receive an email with instructions on how to join the webinar shortly.

Benjamin Lynch

Associate Director for Scientific Computing, University of Minnesota

Ben leads the Scientific Computing Solutions (SCS) team at MSI, which consults for research groups spanning many disciplines and leads new technology deployments. While in graduate school, Ben developed wave-based and density-functional based electronic structure methods. He also used genetic algorithms to optimize basis functions in multi-coefficient electron correlation extrapolation methods. These methods were developed to be used in thermochemistry and thermochemical kinetics simulations.
