National laboratories operated by the DOE Office of Science are home to some of the world’s leading supercomputing centers for open scientific research: the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and the Argonne and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facilities. The National Nuclear Security Administration labs: Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories, have consistently deployed leading edge, world-leading systems to meet their mission needs. Additionally, many of the labs have active research programs in applied mathematics, scientific application development, computer science and energy efficient computing. For the first time, the facilities and capabilities of 15 national labs will be highlighted in a booth program featuring presentations by HPC experts, electronic posters, demonstrations, roundtable discussions and a 3D display showing simulations and modeling.
Presentations by HPC’s leading lights
The DOE booth will feature 24 presentations by some of the top names in scientific computing and networking, covering topics ranging from investigating subatomic particles to exploring the darkest corners of the universe, from using mini-apps for science to bringing HPC and networking to meet the challenge of Big Data. Read the full schedule.
Interactive posters feature latest insights
As some of the leading centers for research into applied mathematics, computer science and computational science, the DOE national labs have a lot of success stories to highlight. For SC14, the labs have created a collection of more than 80 electronic posters to be displayed on touch-screen monitors, allowing users to delve into the science.
Join a roundtable discussion
Just as scientific discovery is increasingly collaborative, so too are the paths to providing researchers with the resources to achieve those discoveries. The DOE booth is hosting a series of roundtable discussions on a wide range of topics. Check the schedule, pull up a chair and join the discussion.
Stop by the demonstration station
From the 70-year-history of computing at Los Alamos to up-to-the-second details of data traffic, the demonstrations in the DOE booth will be informative and interactive. You call also learn about various tools for HPC.
