High Performance Computing for Accelerating Anti-COVID R&D [Online Event]

About this Event

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a major global healthcare crisis that has altered how we live and work. In response to this, research activities have intensified with a goal to find solutions to the wide-ranging problems that arose from the pandemic, from developing new diagnostics, finding new therapies, to building models in anticipation of the evolution of the virus. Many of these research and development critically depend on the computation of datasets and simulation of multiple scenarios, all of which can be accelerated with high performance computing (HPC).

The National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore’s first national petascale facility with available HPC infrastructure, has joined other global HPC centres in offering resources for anti-COVID research & development.

In this talk, we will discuss how HPC can help in these endeavours and provide capabilities to users to accelerate their research and development efforts in finding urgent solutions to our COVID-19 crisis.

Date: 12 August 2020

Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm (Singapore Time / UTC+8)

Programme:
