AHUG SC 2020 Virtual Event

While we could not meet in person at SC 20, AHUG was proud to sponsor a series of virtual talks and live panels on the state-of-the-art in Arm-related high performance computing research, tools, and products.

Presentations from HPC users and vendors are now posted on the new AHUG YouTube channel with talks in three different tracks. Three live panels were hosted on November 9th, 2020 with a subset of the speakers from these virtual talks. Slides and code examples are available at the SVE Hackathon website which was held on November 10th, 2020.
