ALCF supercomputers enable groundbreaking research in 2018

The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility, had another fruitful year. ALCF users employed complex simulations, data science techniques, and machine learning to accelerate discoveries across scientific disciplines. As 2019 approaches, we take a look back at some of the remarkable advances ALCF supercomputing resources enabled this past year.

ALCF workshop prepares users for simulation, data, and learning research

In order to address the transforming research needs required across a variety of disciplines, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility, held its second Simulation, Data, and Learning (SDL) Workshop.

From October 2 to October 4, 2018, the ALCF hosted more than 50 prospective and current users from laboratories and universities across the country. The training event enabled attendees to work side-by-side with ALCF staff members and industry experts from Intel, Cray, ARM, and Paratools to hone their abilities using tools, systems, and frameworks that can accelerate scientific computing on the threshold of the exascale era.
