The White House National Strategic Computing Initiative Workshop will be held on Oct. 20-21, and will include topics such as the convergence of data-intensive and numerically intensive computing, hardware technology for future high-performance computing (HPC), and improving productivity in HPC application development and deployment and workforce development.

Those interested in participating may register here.

The workshop aims to bring together industry, academia, and government for a briefing on the challenges and opportunities of increasing computing demands, the increasing role of big data, and the evolving technological landscape.

The day one keynote speaker will be Thomas Theis, executive director of the Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI) at the Semiconductor Research Corporation. The day two keynote speaker will be University of California, Berkeley professor Kathy Yelick, associate laboratory director for computing sciences at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The workshop is a response to President Barack Obama's July 29, 2015, executive order creating the National Strategic Computing Initiative, a government-wide effort to develop a multi-agency vision and federal investment strategy that maximizes the benefits of HPC to strengthen the U.S.'s economic competitiveness, increase sector-based productivity, unleash new scientific discovery, and grow regional innovation ecosystems.
