Home > Press > The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) and the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) are proud to co-sponsor an informational seminar: Leveraging Supercomputing in Nano/NanoBio Research

Abstract:
Continuing rapid advances in computing hardware and software have made computational approaches to re-search and product development one of the major drivers for innovation across a wide range of disciplines. COIN and JSSN are proud to co-sponsor an informational seminar designed to provide academic and industry nanotechnology researchers interested in leveraging supercomputing with a rapid introduction to the state of the field and practical guidance in moving forward.

The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) and the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) are proud to co-sponsor an informational seminar: Leveraging Supercomputing in Nano/NanoBio Research

Greensboro, NC | Posted on June 30th, 2011

Agenda:

Computational Innovation: Harnessing Supercomputing for Academic and Industrial Research

Dr. James Myers: Director of CCNI and Clinical Professor of Computer Science at RPI. With over two decades of experience in the development and application of advanced Cyberinfrastructure across multiple scientific communities and a long-term research focus on enhancing overall scientific productivity, Myers has a uniquely broad perspective on the transformative potential of massively parallel supercomputing and of the growing importance of integrated compute, data, and visualization services to scientific innovation.

Realizing Potential: Computational Capabilities and Innovations Enabled by CCNI

Dr. Mark Shephard: Samuel A. and Elisabeth C. Johnson, Jr. Professor of Engineering at Rensselaer and the Director of Rensselaer's Scientific Computation Research Center. Dr. Shephard has made well-recognized contributions to the areas of automatic mesh generation, automated and adaptive analysis methods, and parallel adaptive simulation technologies, publishing over 250 papers. His research has been and continues to be supported by government agencies (12 different agencies) and industry (funding from 44 companies).

Navigating a Supercomputer Center: From Inquiry to Innovation

Cameron Smith: Computational Scientist with joint appointments in CCNI and Scientific Computation Research Center. With multiple projects developing next-generation modeling and simulation capabilities for academic and industrial collaborators, Cameron is an expert in computational scaling and well-versed in the day-to-day mechanics of supercomputer use as well as the suite of support, training, and consulting capabilities provided by modern supercomputing centers.

Talks will be informal and the agenda will include significant time for questions and discussion. To register for the event, go to nanobiosupercomputing.eventbrite.com/.
