Alan Poon kicks off the NERSC@50 Seminar Series on April 15 at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom.

In celebration of NERSC’s 50th anniversary, NERSC staff and users will gather online for the NERSC@50 seminar series, a special collection of talks reflecting on NERSC’s legacy of advancing science through HPC and what’s on deck for the next 50 years. Series seminars will take place throughout the year on Mondays at 1:30 p.m. PDT on Zoom.

The series kicks off April 15 with Alan Poon, Berkeley Lab Nuclear Sciences Division scientist and program head for Fundamental Symmetries and Neutrinos research. A NERSC user for more than 20 years, he’ll discuss how NERSC resources have enabled neutrino research over the last three decades (“the golden era of neutrino research”) and are contributing to current and future work.
