In an effort to showcase how hybrid supercomputing is enabling scientific breakthroughs across a broad range of fields, Oak Ridge National Labs will host the Accelerating Computational Science Symposium 2012 on March 28–30 in Washington, D.C.

Attendees will discuss how computational science on extreme-scale hybrid-computing architectures will advance research and development in this decade, increase our understanding of the natural world, accelerate innovation, and as a result, increase economic opportunity,” said Jack Wells, director of science at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF).

The hybrid architecture is the foundation of ORNL’s Titan supercomputer, which will reach up to 20 petaflops of performance by the end of this year. Read the Full Story.
