BLUE WATERS PANEL DISCUSSION

BLUE WATERS PANEL DISCUSSION

In its first two years, the Blue Waters supercomputer has advanced research and discovery in astrophysics, atmospheric science, biology, sub-atomic physics, seismology and a wide range of other fields. On April 6, Illinois Senator Mark Kirk will host a celebration of these achievements and of the vital role of high-performance computing plays in tackling the challenges of science and society.
 
In addition to remarks from Sen. Kirk, several of the researchers who use Blue Waters—including biophysicist Klaus Schulten, bioengineer/cancer researcher Rohit Bhargava, and atmospheric scientist Leigh Orf—will describe how the supercomputer has accelerated their work. 
 
All members of the campus community are invited to attend. 
 
The presentation and panel discussion will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 pm on April 6 in the auditorium of the NCSA Building, 1205 W. Clark St., Urbana.
