From organizing committees and sessions to presenting papers on a range of high performance computing and mathematical topics, some two dozen scientists from Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD) participated in the 2020 SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing, held Feb. 12-15 in Seattle.

Aydin Buluc was on the meeting’s Organizing Committee and Proceedings Paper Committee; session organizers from CRD included:

  • Ann Almgren, “Experiences in Developing GPU Support for Department of Energy Math Libraries”
  • Zhe Bai and Zezuan Xu, “Physical-Based Modeling and Machine Learning for Biological and Environmental Sciences”
  • Roel Van Beeumen, David B. Williams-Young, and Chao Yang, “Parallel Eigenvalue Algorithms for Physical Simulation:
  • Pieter Ghysels and Yang Liu, “Low-Rank Compression-Based Fast Sparse Direct Solvers”
  • Osni Marques, “New Approaches for Software Auto-Tuning and Accuracy Assurance”
