NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

NERSC, LBL Researchers Share Materials Science Advances at APS

March 3, 2014

NERSC and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL) are well represented this week at the American Physical Society (APS) March meeting.

Some 10,000 physicists, scientists, and students are expected to attend this year’s meeting, which takes place March 3-7 in Denver, CO.  Physicists and students will report on groundbreaking research from industry, universities and major labs all over the world.

During the meeting, the Computational Physics (DCOMP) Division of the APS is sponsoring a Focus Session on "Petascale Science and Beyond: Applications and Opportunities for Materials Science." The following NERSC staff and users will be presenting talks during the focus session about research based in part on NERSC computations:

Session B27, March 3: Applications and Opportunities for Materials Science I

Session G27, March 4: Applications and Opportunities for Materials Science II

Session M27, March 5: Applications and Opportunities for Materials Science III

Other presentations during the APS meeting involving research supported by computational resources at NERSC include:

About NERSC and Berkeley Lab
The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility that serves as the primary high performance computing center for scientific research sponsored by the Office of Science. Located at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, NERSC serves almost 10,000 scientists at national laboratories and universities researching a wide range of problems in climate, fusion energy, materials science, physics, chemistry, computational biology, and other disciplines. Berkeley Lab is a DOE national laboratory located in Berkeley, California. It conducts unclassified scientific research and is managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy. »Learn more about computing sciences at Berkeley Lab.
