How to advance the use of high performance computing (HPC) was the focus of a July 27 workshop that brought together more than 30 participants from the UW, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Washington State University, and was hosted by UW-IT and UW’s Hyak Governance Board. Participants explored opportunities for collaboration, including sharing supercomputers and other computational resources. A forthcoming report may outline possible paths toward a statewide alliance. HPC has helped the UW obtain more than $30 million in grants for research, and supports faculty retention and recruitment.
