This just in. We just received word that Bill Kramer has been named the new Deputy Project Leader for the NSF-sponsored Blue Waters supercomputing project at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications [NCSA]. He is currently the General Manager at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center [NERSC].
Bill has been a long-time staple of the high performance computing industry on the west coast. Prior to working at NERSC, he held positions down the street at NASA. From 1986 to 1994, he was the Branch Chief of Computational Services at the Numerical Aerodynamic Simulation [NAS] Systems Divison at NASA Ames Research Center.
Good luck to Bill in his latest endeavors.
