Meet 6 Trailblazing Women in HPC

Women are severely underrepresented in the field of HPC. While they comprise about 51 percent of the general population, women account for only about 17 percent of the HPC workforce1. Those numbers are slowly improving, thanks to the contributions of numerous female engineers, scientists and researchers. In recognition of March as International Women’s History Month, we’re profiling six talented women doing trailblazing work that should inspire others to enter this exciting field.

Porting a Particle-in-Cell Code to Exascale Architectures

By Nils Heinonen on behalf of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility As part of a series aimed at sharing best practices in preparing applications for Aurora, we highlight researchers’ efforts to optimize codes to run efficiently on graphics processing units. Take advantage of upgrades being made to high-level, non-machine-specific libraries and programming models Developed in […]
