SC is the International Conference for
 High Performnance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 13-19, 2010

TACC’s Scientific Computing Curriculum: Supporting Academia and Industry

SESSION: Recruitment, Training and Scientific Computing Curriculum

EVENT TYPE: Special Topic: Workforce Development, Communities

TIME: 4:15PM - 5:00PM

Panelists:Melyssa Fratkin, Bill Barth, Chap Wong, Dan Stanzione, Walton Yantis


The Grand Challenges facing our world demand breakthroughs in scientific research that are only possible with high performance computing (HPC), whether in industry or academia. Meanwhile, numerous reports have shown that there is a critical shortage of talent in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, and in particular, in HPC talent. US companies, who face the reality of “baby-boomers” retiring, will benefit from larger numbers of skilled HPC workers coming out of college – workers who will not have to be re-trained when hired. The panel discussion will focus on the importance of colleges and universities developing and teaching courses in computational science. The panel will share lessons-learned from the TACC Scientific Computing Curriculum (SCC), and express the need for an HPC-knowledgeable workforce in industry. Takeaways from the meeting will include TACC’s SCC package, funded in part by Chevron.
