Discovery Park to host High Performance Computing Forum
On Thursday (Aug. 24), Discovery Park will host a forum on high-performance computing to discuss key elements of a recent solicitation published by the National Science Foundation aimed at building a next-generation high-performance computing platform.
Purdue has submitted a letter of intent in response to the solicitation and will submit a proposal in November. The forum will assist in the proposal development process by gathering audience input to refine the overall proposal strategy and learn about current computational efforts happening on campus. Gerhard Klimeck, professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology, is leading the effort and will open the forum by giving an overview on the proposal.
A series of short presentations by Purdue faculty and a roundtable discussion with leading high-performance computing experts will serve as the basis for the discussion. Speakers will include:
* Jeffrey Greeley (Chemical Engineering).
* Gaurav Chopra (Chemistry).
* Marisol Koslowski (Mechanical Engineering) and Alejandro Strachan (Materials Engineering).
* Ananth Grama (Computer Science).
* Matthew Huber (Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences).
* Mitch Tuinstra (Agronomy) and Jian Jin (Agricultural and Biological Engineering).
A moderated panel discussion will conclude the forum. The forum will be held 1-5 p.m. in Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, Room 121.
