PRESS RELEASE

2018 NCSA Blue Waters Symposium presentations now available online

Researchers from around the United States convened in Sunriver, Oregon, last month for the 2018 NCSA Blue Waters Symposium to share their research and scientific discoveries from the past year enabled by NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputer.

Videos from the more than 85 presentations about the research being done using the Blue Waters supercomputer includes both research at a massive scale, like the formation of galaxies, and research at a minute scale, examining the molecular dynamics of DNA nanostructures. The videos of the talks can be found on our YouTube channel, NCSAatIllinois, and can be found here.

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provides supercomputing and advanced digital resources for the nation's science enterprise. At NCSA, University of Illinois faculty, staff, students, and collaborators from around the globe use advanced digital resources to address research grand challenges for the benefit of science and society. NCSA has been advancing one-third of the Fortune 50 for more than 30 years by bringing industry, researchers, and students together to solve grand challenges at rapid speed and scale.
