HPC Symposium @ GWU

 SEAS recently organized the first GW Symposium on High-Performance Computing and Applications, which was held at the Marvin Center in October 2006. The symposium was conceived to provide a forum to showcase advanced computing work at GW and to learn about the direction and key programs of the federal government in high performance computing. It was co-chaired by SEAS Professors Tarek El-Ghazawi, Steve Kan, and Rajat Mittal, and approximately 60 people from government, SEAS, and GW’s

The opening remarks were given by the University’s Executive Vice President Donald R. Lehman. Among the topics covered at the symposium were computational fluid dynamics, crash analysis simulations, advanced computer systems and programming models, computational high-energy physics, and computational chemistry. In addition to the presentations given by SEAS and other GW faculty, leaders from various federal agencies and government laboratories also addressed the symposium. Among them were the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Science Foundation, Naval Research Laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
