What Makes a Supercomputer So Super?
- This event has passed.
Supercomputers play an important role in the field of computational science and are used for a wide range of computationally intensive tasks in various fields ranging from basic science to finance. What is high-performance computing (HPC)? Who uses it, and why? Did you know the state of North Carolina once had its own HPC center?
John Blondin, associate dean for research in the College of Sciences, and Daniel Lucio, systems programmer/specialist in the College of Sciences, will address these questions and more interesting stuff like what makes a supercomputer so super, where you find them and ways to get access.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
