In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Jon Bashor from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory describes how the Student Cluster Competitions benefit the HPC community at large.
SC14 is now accepting applications for their Broader Engagement program. With a mission to increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in HPC, the Broader Engagement program offers travel grants to the conference, which will take place Nov. 16-21 in New Orleans.
“Why does high-performance computing matter? Because science matters! Discovery matters! Human beings are seekers, questers, questioners. And when we get answers, we ask bigger questions. HPC extends our reach, putting more knowledge, more discovery, and more innovation within our grasp. With HPC, the future is ours to create! #HPCMatters!”
“High Performance Computing is fundamental to science and society, allowing scientists and researchers to push the boundaries of human knowledge and tackle the biggest challenges we face today. HPC matters because these challenges affect each and every one of us from where we live, to how we lead healthier lives, to how we protect people in the face of violent weather, changing climate, and unpredictable seismic activity. HPC matters because people matter.”
