  Introducing HPC to an organization involves much more than buying hardware and plugging it in. From infrastructure through training, it may by the hidden issues that cause the most problems for HPC centers. These issues are particularly troublesome for startup facilities. The goal of this BOF is to bring together anyone that is involved in or considering a new HPC installation. Some of the issues that we hope to discuss are infra-structure issues, hardware selection, user training, utilization, and funding.
