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.

Virtual SC20 Retrospective: Thinkers’ Thoughts on HPC Today and Tomorrow

Check out this assemblages’ reflections on last week’s virtual SC20. Their thoughts range from big-picture insights on how the event reflects the state of HPC to the keynotes, sessions and announcements they think were particularly notable (and worth going back and watching, if you missed them). Among the topics covered: The convergence of the Top500 and Green500 supercomputer lists, the emerging earmarks of machine learning HPC workloads and the validity of supercomputing predictions made at SC in 2006 over against predictions for 2035.

Where to Go and What to Do at Virtual SC20: These HPC Experts Give Guidance

As you plan for next week’s Virtual SC20, we thought it would be helpful to ask four HPC industry experts for guidance regarding the sessions, trends, news and other highlights worthy of your attention coming out of what one of our panelists, Dr. Thomas Sterling of the University of Indiana (and of Beowulf cluster pioneering fame), described as “a diverse and rich” program agenda.
