ALCF hosts high school girls for STEM event

As part of the 28th annual Science Careers in Search of Women (SCSW) conference, the young women were given the unique opportunity to investigate their areas of interest through interaction with many of Argonne’s world-class women scientists and engineers.

About 20 of the students chose to tour the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), a DOE Office of Science User Facility, to learn more computational science.

INCITE Seeking Proposals to Advance Science and Engineering at U.S. Leadership Computing Facilities

The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains.

From April 15 to June 26, INCITE’s open call provides an opportunity for researchers to make transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of computer time and supporting resources at the Argonne and Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (LCF) centers, both U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facilities.

  • Introducing Aurora, Argonne's next-generation supercomputer

Introducing Aurora

Today, U.S. Department of Energy Under Secretary for Science and Energy Lynn Orr announced two new High Performance Computing (HPC) awards that continue to advance U.S. leadership in developing exascale computing. The announcement was made alongside leaders from Argonne National Laboratory and industry partners at Chicago’s tech start-up hub, 1871. 

Under the joint Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne, and Lawrence Livermore (CORAL) initiative, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a $200 million investment to deliver a next-generation supercomputer, known as Aurora, to the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF).
