HPC: A Matter of Life or Death

SESSION: Tuesday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 10:20AM - 11:00AM


Speaker(s):Terry Boyd

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


This session will use the example of a fictitious "zombie virus" outbreak to demonstrate the multiple applications of HPC to public health. These include:
1. Big Data Analysis to detect outbreaks
2. Spatial modeling and modeling of potential outbreaks to develop emergency response plans
3. Genomic evaluation of suspected disease outbreaks
4. Drug manufacturing and supply modeling
5. Contact tracing and response modeling to evaluate current activities and improve response activities
6. Post-event analysis to prepare for the next epidemic.

Though this session will use a fictitious zombie outbreak as the basis for discussion in order to increase interest in the session, the uses described will be applicable to real life outbreaks such as Ebola and H1N1.

Speaker Details:

David Martin (Chair) - Argonne National Laboratory

Terry Boyd - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
