Mtg: Supercomputing at NASA: Current Impact, Future Challenges

by @ 8:29 am. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Computers/Software, Engineering Mgmt, NanoEngineering

TUESDAY May 11, 2010
SCV Computer Chapter
Speakers: Dr. Rupak Biswas, Division Chief, NASA Advanced Supercomputing
Time: Pizza/sodas and networking at 6:30 PM; Presentations at 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Microsoft Research, 1288 Pear Ave., Mountain View
RSVP: from website

In this talk, Dr. Biswas will describe NASA’s fully-integrated supercomputing environment, its recent impact in several NASA mission areas, and discuss some pacing challenges to be overcome to make the next revolutionary advances in this field.? High-fidelity modeling, simulation, and analysis, enabled by supercomputing, are becoming increasingly important to NASAâ??s mission to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research.? High performance computing for computational modeling and simulation is now integral to the space agencyâ??s work in all mission areas.? The NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division at Ames Research Center hosts the majority of the Agencyâ??s supercomputing assets, which consists of over 900 teraflops of computational capability, more than 6 petabytes of filesystem.? The NAS facility also provides full-service support to scientists and engineers in the areas of application porting, performance optimization, large-scale data analysis and rendering, and multi-terabyte data transfers.
