The U.S. D.O.E. Exascale Computing Project – Goals and Challenges

Tuesday, November 14 • 10:30AM – 11:15AM
LOCATION: Mile High Ballroom

In 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy established the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) – a joint project of the DOE Office of Science (DOE-SC) and the DOE National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) – that will result in a broadly usable exascale ecosystem and prepare mission critical applications to take advantage of that ecosystem.

HPC Impact Showcase: Impact of the DOE and NCI Partnership on Precision Oncology

Tuesday, November 14 • 10:30AM – 11:00AM
LOCATION: 501-502

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) formed a partnership with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to jointly develop advanced computing solutions for cancer by bringing together researchers from four DOE laboratories (Argonne, Los Alamos, Livermore, and Oak Ridge) with the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR). This integrated team has launched three pilot projects, each addressing a major challenge problem on the forefront of precision oncology.

Going Smart and Deep on Materials at ALCF

Wednesday, November 15 • 1:45PM – 2:30PM
LOCATION: DOE Exhibit Booth (#613)

Argonne Distinguished Fellow Ian Foster will present a talk “Going Smart and Deep on Materials at ALCF.” The presentation will include a demonstration of how researchers can use large collections of materials science data to build machine learning models that can guide simulations, improve their accuracy and reduce their cost, and launch new computations on ALCF resources.
