For some Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences staffers, SC15 presents an opportunity to mentor and inspire a new generation of computer scientists and engineers. These are some of the outreach events where Berkeley Lab staff will be participating in Austin, Texas.

Kathy Yelick, Associate Laboratory Director of Computing Scienceswill give a short talk on career planning as part of the Early Career Workshop on Monday, Nov. 16.

Katie Antypas, Head of Scientific Computing and Data Services Department, will give a presentation at the Mentor-Protege Mixer on Monday, Nov. 16

Jarrod McClean, 2015 Luis Alvarez Fellow in Computing Sciences, will be a panelist in a session of the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates on Wednesday, Nov. 18

Kathy Yelick, Associate Laboratory Director of Computing Sciences, will give a presentation to local high schools students on Wednesday, Nov. 18

John Shalf (CRD), Bernard Li (IT Division), Inder Monga (ESnet), Dani Ushizima (CRD), Aydin Buluc (CRD) will talk with students during the Dinner with Interesting People on Wednesday, Nov. 18

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery, and researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’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 energy.gov/science.
