Upcoming dates: HTCondor Week, facilitators out of office

May 14, 2018

Greetings, CHTC users,

It's a busy time of year! Please read this email for three important announcements.

1. HTCondor Week - website here

HTCondor Week is next week (May 21 - 24). Registration for the conference has closed; however, UW Madison affiliates can attend the tutorials (Monday, May 21) and research talks (Thursday, May 24) for FREE without registering -- just sign in at the welcome table (registration is required to partake in breakfast and lunch). There will be many CHTC users sharing their use of HTCondor during the research talks on Thursday, so we encourage everyone to come out!

2. Facilitator outages in May

Due to HTCondor Week and other conference commitments, Lauren and Christina (CHTC facilitators) will have limited availability between May 21 and June 1.

Office hours will be cancelled on the following dates: Tuesday, May 22, Wednesday, May 23, and the week of May 28. You should also expect delayed responses to email during the week of May 28. This information is also posted on our get-help page.

We apologize for the unfortunate timing of back-to-back conference commitments. We *will* have office hours on Thursday, May 24 and normal office hour timing will resume on June 5. Our usual support email - chtc@cs.wisc.edu - is always the best way to get in touch.

3. Congratulations!

Congratulations to all who have finished (or are about to finish) their degree programs during this academic year. We're proud to have supported your work.


Announcing HTCondor Week 2018

Friday, March 30, 2018, 1:22 PM

Hi all,
(Second announcement of the day, and hopefully our last announcement for awhile!)

We would like to invite you to HTCondor Week 2018, HTCondor's annual user conference.

This year, HTCondor Week will be held May 21-24 at the Fluno Center on the UW Madison campus. We will have a variety of in-depth tutorials and talks where you can not only learn more about HTCondor, but you can also learn how other people are using and deploying HTCondor across the country and the world. Best of all, you can establish contacts and learn best practices from people in industry, government, and academia who are using HTCondor to solve hard problems, many of which may be similar to those you are facing. You'll also get a peek into our longer term development plans--something you can only get at HTCondor Week!

UW-Madison affiliates can attend tutorials on Monday, May 21 and research talks on Thursday, May 24 for FREE (without registering), but will otherwise need to register for the May 22-23 sessions and/or to partake in conference meals. If you have any questions about this, or HTCondor week in general, contact our usual support email at chtc@cs.wisc.edu.

You can register and see the agenda overview on the HTCondor Week 2018 site.

We hope to see you there!

Cheers,
The CHTC Team
