In this video, NCSA enters the SC14 #HPCMatters competition.

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!

SC14 will take place in New Orleans this year with a theme of “HPC Matters.”  You can help carry this message by producing your own #HPCMatters videos, and maybe even win yourself a free registration for the conference.

We invite you to share your thoughts, vision, and experiences with HPC and why it matters to you. To participate, simply upload a one-minute, or less, video to the SC14 YouTube Channel and make sure to tag the video with “#HPCmatters.” Your creativity and passion will be the key in helping us share the personal story of HPC to the public, to policy makers, and to our colleagues around the world.
