Supercomputing

Applications are now open for the SC19 Early Career program. ​​​​​​​The program provides a one-day series of special sessions for early-career researchers, educators, and technical professionals, on Monday November 18 2019 at SC19 in Denver, Colorado. This includes academic, industry, and laboratory postdocs and staff within the first five years of a permanent position. It aims to help participants secure a better understanding of the issues and challenges faced while navigating a successful research career.
Register now for the run starting on 24th September 2018. Today’s supercomputers are the most powerful calculating machines ever invented, capable of performing more than a thousand million million calculations every second. This gives scientists and engineers a powerful new tool to study the natural world: computer simulation.

Nearly 12,000 keen people visited the exhibition floor of Supercomputing 2015, among the flashing LEDs and towering racks of computers, it was easy to feel that you are experiencing computation at its physical limits; a world of highly optimised hardware and software built for maximum performance. Yet it was obvious that Python, the most popular language for teaching introductory programming, has become an integrated component of the HPC stack.

The deadline for submissions to the Working towards Sustsinable Scientific Software: Practices and Experiences workshop has been extended by one week to July 21st, 2014.
