Berkeley Lab Staff Contribute Papers to SIAM Conference on Parallel Computing

March 28, 2016


Every other year, hundreds of parallel computing experts convene for the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing. When the seventeenth meeting in the series is held April 12-15 in Paris, France, a number of Berkeley Lab staff will contribute their expertise in papers and invited talks. The conference provides a forum for communication among the applied mathematics, computer science, and computational science and engineering communities.

The conference series has played a key role in promoting parallel scientific computing, algorithms for parallel systems and parallel numerical algorithms. The conference is unique in its emphasis on the intersection between high performance scientific computing and scalable algorithms, architectures, and software.

On Thursday, April 14, Berkeley Lab Deputy Director Horst Simon will receive the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing (SIAG/SC) Career Prize. Established in 2009, the prize is awarded to an outstanding senior researcher who has made broad and distinguished contributions to the field of algorithms research and development for parallel scientific and engineering computing. Simon will give a guest lecture on “Supercomputers and Superintelligence.”
