Life at the Leading Edge: Supercomputing @ Lawrence Livermore

SESSION: Invited Talks 5

EVENT TYPE: Invited Speakers

TIME: 10:30AM - 11:15AM

SESSION CHAIR: Padma Raghavan

Presenter(s):Dona Crawford

ROOM:New Orleans Theater

ABSTRACT:

Even before Livermore Laboratory opened in 1952, Ernest O. Lawrence and Edward Teller placed an order for one of the first commercial supercomputers, a Univac mainframe. Although computer simulation was in its infancy at the time, Laboratory leaders recognized its potential to accelerate scientific discovery and engineering. The Lab focused on complex, long-term national security problems that could be advanced through computing. These mission-focused applications drove the required computing hardware advances, which drove the associated infrastructure. What factors allowed LLNL to become leaders in HPC? How have they been sustained over the years? Come hear the inside Lab perspective on why #hpcmatters and what the Lab is doing to advance the discipline
