Two sponsors commit to XSEDE13 conference: Cray and Intel

Two corporate sponsors—Cray Inc. and Intel—have committed to supporting XSEDE13, the annual conference focused on science, education, outreach, software, and technology related to the National Science Foundation's eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment. XSEDE13 will bring together hundreds of scientists, technology experts, educators, and students July 22-25, 2013, at the Marriott Marquis & Marina in San Diego.

Cray was the first company to commit as an XSEDE13 sponsor. A silver sponsor of last year's conference, Cray increased its commitment to become a Gold sponsor of XSEDE13. 

Intel also increased its support this year and has agreed to support XSEDE13 at the highest sponsorship level, Platinum.

"Our sponsors enable us to hold a first-class event that furthers high-performance computing research and practice and also supports students from high school through graduate school in a unique way," said XSEDE13 General Chair Nancy Wilkins-Diehr. "And through their exhibits the sponsors also provide our attendees with valuable information on cutting-edge offerings in high-performance computing, data, networking services, and more."

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for corporations and non-profit organizations. To explore opportunities for your own company or non-profit organization to support and participate in XSEDE13, visit
