Andrew will introduce the new Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), its mission, its current systems and the systems expected to arrive at Argonne this fall. The ALCF ( http://www.alcf.anl.gov/) is a national leadership computing facility designed to provide resources that make computationally intensive projects of the largest scales possible.

Currently the ALCF supports 9 INCITE computational science projects covering disciplines as diverse as protein folding to modeling jet engines.
