The DOE’s national laboratories will be showcased at SC19 next week in Denver, CO.

Computational scientists from DOE laboratories have been involved in the conference since it began in 1988 and this year’s event is no different. Experts from the 17 national laboratories will be sharing a booth featuring speakers, presentations, demonstrations, discussions, and simulations. DOE booth #925 will also feature a display of high performance computing artifacts from past, present and future systems. Lab experts will also contribute to the SC19 conference program by leading tutorials, presenting technical papers, speaking at workshops, leading birds-of-a-feather discussions, and sharing ideas in panel discussions.

In addition to computational experts from the national labs, the DOE booth will feature work supported by the National Nuclear Security Administration computing centers at Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, and DOE Office of Science’s HPC centers: the Argonne and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facilities and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Engineers from DOE’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), which connects 50 DOE sites to their users and collaborators around the world through high-bandwidth networks, will discuss the role of networking in scientific discovery.

Together, the talks, demos, discussions ,and electronic displays will exemplify DOE’s leadership in scientific discovery, national security and exascale computing. In particular, the three days of speakers at the DOE booth will give visitors insights into how HPC accelerates competitiveness, improves American research and development, and helps solve problems thought previously impossible.
