Applications are now being accepted for the Broader Engagement (BE) Program at SC14, which will be held in New Orleans from November 16-21, 2014.
The BE Program is designed to diversify the pool of talent in high-performance computing (HPC) by introducing, engaging, and supporting students and professionals belonging to underrepresented minority groups. For more information, visit:http://sc14.supercomputing.org/engage/broader-engagement/

NERSC and Cray Inc. announced today that they have signed a contract for NERSC's next supercomputer. The new Cray XC system will use Intel’s next-generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor –- code-named “Knights Landing” -- a self-hosted, manycore processor with on-package high bandwidth memory and delivers more than 3 teraFLOPS of double-precision peak performance per single socket node. Scheduled for delivery in mid-2016, the new system will deliver 10x the sustained computing capability of NERSC’s Hopper system.

NERSC’s name and logos have changed over the decades, reflecting the center’s increasingly broad scientific mission. Founded in 1974 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as the Controlled Thermonuclear Research Computer Center, NERSC has evolved from its early days supporting magnetic fusion research at LLNL to providing supercomputing resources across a spectrum of scientific applications, including energy, astrophysics, biology and environmental sciences.
