This summer the Ultrascale Systems Research Center (USRC) hosted the 2nd annual USRC Research Symposium on August 3, 2017. The purpose of this symposium, held at the LANL JR Oppenheimer Research Center, was to foster an understanding of the breadth and depth of the work done at the USRC and to spread ideas among USRC colleagues. The USRC is a collaboration between the New Mexico Consortium and LANL to engage universities and industry nationally in support of exascale research. The USRC investigates extreme scale computational sciences.
The 2017 USRC Research Symposium showcased presentations by 11 interns, ranging from undergraduates to postdocs, 10 posters by interns, and three staff talks. The symposium began with a welcome by LANL Staff Lissa Baseman and an overview of the USRC by USRC Director, Nathan DeBardeleben. The keynote speech on “Radiation Induced Effects on HPC Hardware” was given by LANL Staff Sean Blanchard. To see the entire agenda and a list of talks, posters and authors click here.
