Celebrating Over 20 Years of PBS

Once again, Altair will bring together HPC thought leaders, expert users, PBS Works engineers and Altair executives to explore and discuss the unique challenges facing HPC users today – this year’s goal is to deliver valuable insights and practical information in each and every session, including real world user stories that will resonate with all attendees – plus access to the entire PBS Works development team headquartered in Sunnyvale.

It’s a big year for PBS Works – at PBSUG we’ll be celebrating Altair’s 30th anniversary, 20 years of PBS, the release of PBS Professional 13.0 (our biggest release ever), Altair’s 30th birthday – and much more. Be there when we celebrate in Silicon Valley at PBSUG15!
