Petascale Day - October 15th, 2012
The petascale era of high performance computing is here, with new machines that run 10^15 calculations per second. In celebration of Petascale Day (10/15), the Computation Institute and the Research Computing Center invite University of Chicago and Argonne researchers to learn about the opportunities created by petascale computing, and the computational resources available on campus and at the lab.
