Transportation, Parking and Meals

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) designs and operates some of the world’s most powerful computing resources. The facility, comprised of two office buildings, three datacenters, two visualization facilities, and a chilling plant, is equipped with High Performance Computing (HPC), HTC, visualization, large scale data storage, cloud computing consulting, curation and analysis, code optimization, portals and gateways, and web service APIs.

The workshop will be held at the TACC’s Data Center, located at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus. This is where TACC’s largest supercomputing systems are housed, including Stampede, as well as some of the fastest, most efficient, and sought-after high performance computing and data storage systems in the world!

Meals
Complimentary refreshments will be provided throughout the day. Because the cafeteria on campus has limited capacity, we strongly recommend that you select the boxed lunch option during registration if you will not have a vehicle to travel on and off campus. On Tuesday evening, there will be an offsite reception with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

Transportation to/from the JJ Pickles Research Center
The workshop fee includes transportation to and from the group hotels each day.

Self Transportation and Parking
There is limited parking available at TACC. The parking kiosk located directly across the street from the building is $3/day. TACC’s offices are located in the Advanced Computing Building (ACB, Building 205) on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus (PRC) of the University of Texas at Austin.

Note: All visitors must now enter the J.J. Pickle Research Campus via the Burnet Road entrance (1 block south of Braker Lane). The Braker Lane entrance is for staff only.

After entering the gated campus, stop and inform the guard that you are a TACC visitor. To get to the Advanced Computing Building (ACB, Building 205), continue past the guard booth, and past the chain link gate to Exploration Way, then make a right. ACB is the second to last building on the right with the overhanging patios.

When you arrive at ACB, you may park in the covered parking lot or on the street. Please obtain a parking pass from one of the kiosks. Walk up the pathway to the building entrance.
