WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 12, 2019 – The scientific computing and networking leadership of 17 U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) national laboratories will be showcased at SC19, the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis, taking place Nov. 18-21 in Denver, CO.
Computational scientists from DOE laboratories have been involved in the conference since it began in 1988 and this year’s event is no different. Experts from the 17 national laboratories will be sharing a booth featuring speakers, presentations, demonstrations, discussions, and simulations. DOE booth (#925) will also feature a display of high performance computing artifacts from past, present and future systems.
Lab experts will also contribute to the SC19 conference program by leading tutorials, presenting technical papers, speaking at workshops, leading birds-of-a-feather discussions, and sharing ideas in panel discussions.
In addition to computational experts from the national labs, the DOE booth will feature work supported by the National Nuclear Security Administration computing centers at Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, and DOE Office of Science’s HPC centers: the Argonne and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facilities and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Engineers from DOE’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), which connects 50 DOE sites to their users and collaborators around the world through high-bandwidth networks, will discuss the role of networking in scientific discovery.
A full schedule of events can be found at http://scdoe.info/. Attendees can also follow the DOE booth on Twitter at @NatLabsHPC. In addition, attendees can learn more about career opportunities at many of the labs during a recruiting event to be held in the booth from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov 21.
Together, the talks, demos, discussions ,and electronic displays will exemplify DOE’s leadership in scientific discovery, national security and exascale computing. In particular, the three days of speakers at the DOE booth will give visitors insights into how HPC accelerates competitiveness, improves American research and development, and helps solve problems thought previously impossible.
