The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC),
a DOE national user facility, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
are presenting a series of colloquia on some of the more exciting
and promising areas of computational science. NERSC, originally
established in 1974, provides computing resources to 2,500 users
and also advances research in such areas as combustion, climate
change, computational biology, materials science, data intensive
computing and fusion energy.
The colloquia will be held in April, May and June 1999 at Berkeley
Lab's Washington, D.C., office, 1250 Maryland Ave. SW, starting
at 9 a.m. The series is open to members of government agencies and
the interested public. Here is a schedule of the talks:
||"Reinventing the Supercomputer
Center at NERSC - Again"
Horst Simon, NERSC Division Director
||"Supercomputing and the Fate
of the Universe"
