SimCenter designated as a host site for the 2019 Petascale Computing Institute

Keynote by GORDON BELL, HPC Pioneer “Man vs. Machine: The Challenge of Engineering Programs for HPC”The first era of scientific computing was defined by Seymour Cray computers hosting single memory FORTRAN programs. In 1993, the first multicomputer with a thousand independent and interconnected computers outperformed mono-memory supercomputers at 60 gigaflops. In 2019, supercomputers have millions of processing elements and operate at hundreds of petaflops. This performance gain of over
