Join us for the second Parsl & funcX Fest Community Meeting. The meeting will be held as a hybrid meeting this year. The in-person component will be held at the University of Chicago.

This meeting brings together researchers, developers, and cyberinfrastructure experts from around the world to discuss experiences using and developing funcX and Parsl. Parsl is a parallel programming library and underpins funcX's endpoint software.

We invite lightning talks from the community and would love to hear about your recent work.

With the increasing prevalence of new ‘omics technologies such as single-cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomics, as well as multi-omic analysis methods that integrate datasets from different ‘omics domains, bioinformatics tools are required to operate on ever larger datasets, which can range in the tens to hundreds of gigabytes or greater. One such bioinformatics tool is GenePattern, developed in the Mesirov Lab at the School of Medicine at UCSD. GenePattern provides a platform for reproducible genomic analysis for users at all levels of computational sophistication.

When any successful project attracts a large community, there will be growing pains. Since its launch in 2015, the experimental cloud computing testbed Chameleon has realized its vision of becoming a shared scientific instrument for computer science research and education. The project, led by Argonne Senior Scientist and UChicago CASE Affiliate Kate Keahey, has supported over 800 projects and 6,000 users from around the world and developed several new applications and deployments.

Using Globus at UCSD

Globus is software-as-a-service for research data management and provides high-speed, secure file transfer, and file sharing directly from existing storage systems. Globus is operated by the University of Chicago and uses a freemium model, supported through subscriptions from campuses like UCSD. This gives UCSD researchers access to additional capabilities, including sharing with collaborators and using Globus with protected data.
