KNIT 8: A FABRIC Community Workshop

Date: March 19 – 21, 2024

Location: San Diego, CA


Presenter: Anita Nikolich, Paul Ruth, KC Wang, Tom Lehman, Jim Griffioen

Event Details

KNIT 8, the next FABRIC Community Workshop, will take place March 19-21, 2024 in San Diego, CA. KNIT 8 will be hosted by the San Diego Supercomputer Center and co-located with the Fifth National Research Platform (5NRP) Workshop. It will be the first workshop since FABRIC has entered full operations.

The workshop will include small-group, hands-on FABRIC tutorial sessions and advanced training topics. During the event, experimenters across multiple science domains will highlight their use of FABRIC to push forward compelling experiments. The FABRIC team will set the stage for the future of FABRIC and solicit feedback from fellow participants during talks and open mic sessions. Additionally, the team will host an information session for users interested in becoming FABRIC Ambassadors. Attendees will get the chance to explore what FABRIC has to offer, connect with the FABRIC community, and provide feedback to the FABRIC team.

During the week, FABRIC and NRP will co-host two events — a demo night and a social program — giving attendees from both workshops a chance to connect and create pathways for collaboration. Additionally, attendees will have the chance to hear keynotes and plenary discussions built around the interests of both FABRIC users and NRP members.


Registration is now open for KNIT 8! The last day to register to attend in person is March 1, 2024. Previous KNIT attendees and students are eligible to receive discounted pricing as well.

The three-day agenda includes…

  • Keynotes and Demos: FABRIC attendees will have the privilege to attend the NRP keynote about the NAIRR Pilot, given by Dr. Katie Antypas from the NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure. Additional sessions include FABRIC keynotes from kc claffy and Arpit Gupta, and an FPGA demo / tutorial led by Nik Sultana.
  • Demo Night: During the Demo Night, FABRIC users will be stationed throughout the room ready to show you their experiments. Come socialize & see what users are doing on FABRIC!
  • User Experiments: These sessions present a number of FABRIC experiments originating from researchers from different scientific disciplines. This session will allow a deeper look into each experiment to share ideas and tricks for other future experiments.
  • …and more!

Please note that the agenda is subject to change up until the event.
