Throughout the past year, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications has been celebrating its 30th anniversary. On Friday, Larry Smarr, whose unsolicited 1983 proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) begat NCSA in 1985 and helped spur NSF to create not one but five national centers for supercomputing, gave a celebratory talk at NCSA.
By now you’ve likely heard that scientists reported detecting the long-sought gravitational waves; this is roughly a 100 years since their prediction by Einstein’s theory of general relativity and more than 20 years since first funding for the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) project to find them. You can safely assume the National Science Read more…
The University of Washington Computer Science and Engineering Distinguished Lecture series recently welcomed Calit2 luminary Larry Smarr to speak on a very interesting topic, bringing wellness into the digital age. Smarr is the founding Director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), a UC San Diego/UC Irvine partnership. Smarr was also the Read more…
UCSD rolls out a next-generation bypass network across its La Jolla, Calif., campus.
The Organization of American States (OAS) has been called the UN of the Americas and it is involved in everything from food security to supercomputing. It is the prime political forum of the western hemisphere and the world’s oldest regional organization.

It is the prime political forum of the western hemisphere and the world’s oldest regional organization.
Calit2’s Larry Smarr examines the implications of an increasingly-networked world.
Despite the evolution of computer science over the past 30 years, structural engineering — hindered by a reluctance to adapt to digital innovations — has remained relatively unchanged as a discipline.
