APS March Meeting looking for abstracts

Members to discuss "Computational Physics at the Petascale and Beyond"

The American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting (March 13-17, 2017) in New Orleans is looking for abstracts for the "Computational Physics at the Petascale and Beyond" focus session. Only APS members can submit abstracts. Submit your abstracts here.

The Division of Computational Physics is sponsoring the session and it will be faced with the following charge:

On July 29, 2015, the President signed an Executive Order creating the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) with a goal of enabling high performance computing (HPC) capable of performing 1018 floating-point operations per second ("exascale"), as well as integrating large-scale data opportunities associated with experiment, observation, and simulation science. This focus session will bring together researchers in computational materials, computational chemistry, and computational biophysics with experience in the effective utilization of high-performance data and compute infrastructure, including supercomputers, communication networks, and data resources to achieve breakthrough results. We intend for this session to highlight strong examples of the state-of-the-art in computational science today leveraging large, national-scale infrastructure. The talks will highlight science results as well as opportunities and challenges in using energy-efficient, pre-exascale HPC systems.

Organizers of the focus session are: Jack C. Wells (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Nichols A. Romero (Argonne National Laboratory), Jack Deslippe (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), and Barry Schneider (National Institute for Standards and Technology).
