The 2010 program review took place place June 21-24 at the Washington Court Hotel. It 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 program review, the second-annual HPC Workshop took place on Monday, June 21. The workshop's major goal 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 inaugural event provided participants with a broad overview of HPC, the 2010 event concentrated on three specific focus areas.
