National Leadership Class Computing Resources and Opportunities for UCLA Researchers
October 22, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, and the National Aeronautical Space Agency support an ecosystem of “leadership class” computing facilities housing some of the world’s most advanced supercomputers and high-end visualization and data analysis resources. These facilities provide “free” computing cycles and storage to researchers from academia. Access to these resources is obtained through an application process that is based on the merit of the research objectives, and demonstration of the efficacy and parallel scalability of the software.
The aim of this presentation is to explain the capabilities of various leadership class computing facilities. It will also introduce the opportunities available to UCLA researchers in terms of the knowledge base, allocation process as well as in terms of the optimization of their software.
