The primary goal of the first HPC in the City is to host a hackathon focused on issues that directly impact the Atlanta Metro Area. These issues can range from societal to scientific utilizing available subject area specialists. The hackathon aims to harness the resources, skills, and knowledge found in the HPC community in an effort to provide applied exposure towards the conference host city local students of 2-4 year post-secondary educational institutions. In short, the hackathon will provide HPC skills and training while targeting problems that directly affect the participants. The hackathon is being planned from the outset as a virtual event.
