2015 Blue Waters Symposium highlights successes, looks to the future of supercomputing


May 29, 2015

The 2015 Blue Waters Symposium, held May 10-13 at Oregon's beautiful Sunriver Resort, brought together leaders in petascale computational science and engineering to share successes and methods. Around 130 attendees, many of whom were Blue Waters users and the NCSA staff who support their work, enjoyed presentations on computational advances in a range of research areas—including sub-atomic physics, weather, biology, astronomy, and many others—as well as keynotes from innovative thinkers and leaders in high-performance computing. Over the three days of the symposium, 58 science teams from across the country presented on their work on Blue Waters.

NCSA Receives Honors in 2013 HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards


Nov 18, 2013

NCSA announced today that it received the HPCwire Editors’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in Life Sciences for the use of the Blue Waters supercomputer to achieve a significant breakthrough in the understanding of HIV. The 2013 HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards were announced at the start of the Opening Reception at the 2013 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC13), in Denver, Colorado. The award recognizes research conducted by biophysicist Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his collaborators.
