Robert Sinkovits, who serves as the director of Education and Training at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, has been selected as the Chairperson for the 2023 Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC23).

Scheduled to take place in Portland, Oregon, July 23-27, 2023, PEARC23 will provide engaging activities and forums for the research computing community.

“We’re thrilled that PEARC23 will be held in Portland, the original location for PEARC20 before it had to go virtual because of the pandemic,” Sinkovits said. “Our theme will be ‘Computing for the Common Good’, which we’re hoping will inspire everyone in our community to think about how they can apply their skills to solving timely and important problems in everything from addressing climate change to advancing the computational social sciences.”
