2010 Annual Conference
Students involved in the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program are part of an innovative group learning to use high performance computing to solve scientific and engineering problems. An annual conference makes it possible for fellows and alumni to get together, share ideas, support one another and discover research opportunities at Department of Energy laboratories.
More About the 2010 Conference
The three-day conference featured presentations by fourth year fellows, thought-provoking keynote and policy speakers, a unique opportunity for DOE laboratories to showcase their employment and practicum opportunities, a fellows poster session and contest, and a myriad of opportunities to network as a community of program fellows, alumni, faculty, and DOE headquarters and laboratory staff.
A precursor to the annual conference, the HPC Workshop took place on Monday, June 21.
The major goal of this workshop was to discuss some of the challenges in utilizing HPC for scientific and engineering research, effective methods for addressing the challenges, and available software tools. While the 2009 workshop provided participants with a broad overview of HPC, this year's event concentrated on three specific focus areas.
In 2010, conference attendees had the opportunity to participate in three valuable — but optional — sessions:
- HPC Roundtable Discussion
- DOE CSGF Fellows and Alumni Session
- DOE Laboratory Career Perspectives and DOE CSGF Alumni Career Panels
