Brookhaven Scientists to Share Their HPC Inspiration at SC18

SC18

The worldwide supercomputing community once again will converge for the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, better known as SC18. For its 30th anniversary year, the conference will be hosted at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas on Nov. 11-16, 2018. Computer scientists from Brookhaven’s Computational Science Initiative and physicists with the Lab’s Physics Application Group will showcase what has inspired their research in areas impacting—or influenced by—high-performance computing and big data management. Look for Brookhaven Lab staff as they host presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and panel discussions throughout the week.

Here is the rundown of the Brookhaven team’s daily SC18 activities:
