CUG 2025

An Invitation to Computing Horizons: CUG 2025

Dear Cray User Group Colleagues,

The Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University (SBU) and the HPE Cray User Group (CUG) Board are thrilled to extend a warm invitation to all members of CUG to the 2025 CUG Conference, from May 4 – May 8, 2025, within minutes of New York City, the big apple – a city that is always open for adventure.

The theme for the 2025 event is Computing Horizons. With this theme, we want to capture the sense of the great opportunities arrayed in front of us, with the tight integration of traditional HPC workloads and powerful AI enabled by innovations in algorithms and special purpose hardware. The 2025 conference is about this bright future and the exploration of these limitless possibilities and their associated challenges.

CUG serves as an annual gathering for experts, researchers, and enthusiasts from the computing community to come together, exchange ideas, and explore the latest advancements in our field. The CUG2025 event promises to be an exciting and enriching experience featuring a diverse range of keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities.

Since 2019, IACS at SBU in partnership with the Center for Computational Research (CCR) at the University of Buffalo, has been operating Ookami, a Cray Apollo 80 system. Ookami is the Japanese word for Wolf, and an homage to the mascot of Stony Brook University, Wolfie Seawulf, and the Japanese origin of the Fujitsu A64FX processor. This testbed is supported by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and provides researchers worldwide with access to the A64FX processor which also powers the famous Fugaku Supercomputer.

SBU is honored to host this event, which is surely an annual highlight of all CUG members. We look forward to welcoming you to the NYC area!

Director of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University
