University Research & HPC: Urgent Against COVID-19, Crucial for Discovery & Innovation

Join our panel of experts at top US research university high performance computing (HPC) centers to learn how the interdependence and impact of HPC and academic research continues to grow.

University research programs are fundamental in the advancement of human knowledge in fields of inquiry. The use of powerful computing and digital technologies is an increasingly important tool for academic research across disciplines, including HPC systems. HPC enables researchers to ask questions and attack complex problems through techniques such as simulation and data analytics in order to understand, discover, and predict.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for rapid understanding and development of solutions, the role of HPC is becoming prominent as researchers around the world depend on HPC systems to model the pandemic, understand the nature of the virus, and develop treatments and vaccines.
