National Strategic Computing Initiative WEBINAR Series Upcoming Events 

The National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI), an Executive Order of the President of the United States, is designed to “maximize benefits of high performance computing (HPC) research, development, and deployment” for the United States. As such, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has organized a bi-monthly seminar program to increase the knowledge base of staff and academia in topics of advanced computing and data science as well as computational platforms, measurement and testing science, algorithms and applied mathematics, and neuromorphic and quantum computing.

Rutgers University’s Office of Advanced Research Computing (OARC) and Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) are pleased to collaborate as one of the nation’s few host sites for this limited-seat WEBINAR series. Unless otherwise noted, all events will take place in Room 601 of the CoRE Building on Busch Campus at 96 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
