We would like to thank our guests and sponsors for making this event so successful. There is nothing more gratifying than to hear from a sponsor at the end of a conference that they are very interested in supporting our project in a bigger way next year.

Our visitation rate was even more than last year with almost 150 people in attendance! We had a total of 16 presenters at this 1 ½ day conference. The poster session was also exciting. We managed to get 5 posters to be presented by students representing our three key academic partners. Some feedback on what we should attempt next year pointed to Ag and Water and even using the general HPC approach to continue to move research and industry development forward.
