NCSA releases 2017 Blue Waters Project Annual Report Detailing Innovative Research and Scientific Breakthroughs

Sep 1, 2017

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign released today the 2017 Blue Waters Project Annual Report. For the project’s fourth annual report, research teams were invited to present highlights from their research that leveraged Blue Waters, the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) most powerful system for sustained computation and data analysis. Spanning economics to engineering, geoscience to space science, Blue Waters has accelerated research and impact across an enormous range of science and engineering disciplines throughout its more than 4-year history covered by the report series. This year is no different.
