Participating in Multiple Workshops, Tutorials, BoFs, Talks, Demos and Outreach Programs

November 2, 2018

SC18 color ver highlights

As they have for the past 26 years, Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences staff will be sharing their expertise with the global HPC community at SC18 through tutorials, technical papers and focused workshops as part of the conference technical program. They will also give featured presentations on NERSC-9 (the newly announced Perlmutter system) and ESnet6, and conduct several demos in the DOE booth (2433). The conference takes place November 11-16 in Dallas, Texas at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

Additionally, staff members will participate in a number of conference outreach programs for students and early career professionals.

Below is a day-by-day guide to sessions featuring Berkeley Lab staff. For more information, including event location, select the title.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) Computing Sciences organization provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing the Department of Energy's research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.

ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 7,000-plus scientists at national laboratories and universities, including those at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division (CRD). CRD conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation. NERSC and ESnet are Department of Energy Office of Science User Facilities.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit science.energy.gov.
