NERSC Hosts Contra Costa College Parallel Computing Club
January 14, 2011
Eleven members of the Contra Costa College Parallel Computing Club paid a visit to NERSC at the Berkeley Lab's Oakland Science Facility on January 14. The students, along with instructor Tom Murphy, were welcomed from NERSC's User Services Group Lead, Katie Antypas, gave an introduction to parallel computing and NERSC, as well as a tour of the facility's computer room. The visit grew out of a conversation at the annual Supercomputing held last November in New Orleans.
