Exascale Hits Its Stride

More than 40 staff from Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area contributed to the Exascale Computing Project’s 4th annual meeting, held Feb. 3-6 in Houston, Texas. Underscoring the maturity and success of the effort, researchers presented a wide array of milestones and hardware, software, and application advances at this year's meeting.

An expansion of the CSA postdoc training program culminated in a symposium where 22 presented their research on-camera and before a live audience.
