NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

Sudip Dosanjh to Focus on NERSC’s Past, Present, and Future in Featured Presentation at SC23

November 6, 2023


As part of the kickoff of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center’s (NERSC’s) 50th anniversary in 2024, NERSC Director Sudip Dosanjh will reflect on the facility’s first 50 years and look ahead to the next five decades during a featured presentation in the DOE booth (#243) during SC23. 

His talk, "The Next 50 Years: How NERSC is Evolving to Support the Changing Mission Space and Technology Landscape," will take place Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2:30-3:30 p.m.

As NERSC heads into 2024 and its 50th anniversary, the center already has its sights set on the next several decades,” Dosanjh said. “This will be an exciting time for NERSC and our users. The mission space of NERSC is expanding to include complex workflows from experimental and observational science and artificial intelligence in addition to simulation and modeling. We are also anticipating significant changes in technology as we reach the end of Moore’s Law. We are investigating a number of disruptive technologies, including quantum computing, so we can continue to provide significant increases in computing capability.”
