CRI/HPC Luncheon, Dec. 6, 2010 at Lawson 3102

Advanced science and engineering is based, to a growing degree, on the "third pillar of science". That is, computational simulation complements research and development that is driven by theoretical studies and real experiments. Through computer simulation, theories can be explored and experiments can be conducted that were unthinkable just a few years ago. HPC research develops the technology that realizes such simulations -climate change predictions, molecular simulations for drug design, exploration of new theories of physics particles in search of the building blocks of matter, to name just a few.Please join us for lunch and to discuss and learn about HPC applications, research, resources, and funding opportunities.

“Close your eyes and imagine you are living 200 years from now. Get up in the morning and you are not allowed to touch fossil fuels,” is the contemplative daydream of Dr. Rakesh Agrawal, distinguished professor of chemical engineering at Purdue University, master inventor and revolutionary thinker who simply cannot help himself, he said, in elevating the discussion of energy solutions and the everyday challenges a solar economy would resolve. Agrawal gave the prestigious fall public lecture for Texas A&M’s Institute for Advanced Study, for which he is a current Faculty Fellow. He addressed the plight of finite energy sources in light of practical, societal needs and the impact of which that has influenced progress and modernization, spanning the history of the human race.Read Full Story
