SC21: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis

The 33rd International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis, or SC21, is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri, this year. The National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS), Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are once again playing an active role in this premier high-performance computing (HPC) event.

Held from November 14–19 at the America’s Center Convention Center in St. Louis, and on a virtual platform, SC21 gives OLCF staff members the opportunity to share their work and knowledge with the HPC community and learn about the latest technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading vendors, research organizations, and universities. The theme of this year’s conference is “Science & Beyond.”

Here are some of the OLCF and ORNL-related contributions to SC21:
