Last year, DOE Under Secretary for Science, Paul Dabbar, toured the SC18 exposition floor at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. His tour included at stop at DOE's booth, where all 17 of the department's national laboratories share the latest about their respective work in the field of high-performance computing. CSI Director Kerstin Kleese van Dam also was part of the tour audience. Credit: JoJulia Photography for SC18.

The worldwide supercomputing community will meet for the annual International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, SC19. This year, Denver will host the week-long showcase of all things HPC at the Colorado Convention Center on Nov. 17-22, 2019. Scientists representing Brookhaven Lab’s Computational Science Initiative, National Synchrotron Light Source II, and other domain areas will be busy throughout the event as they participate in presentations, workshops, demonstrations, panel discussions, and other HPC-related sessions throughout the week.
