High Performance Computing (HPC) has become an essential
and pervasive tool used in nearly all disciplines. SHARCnet makes freely
available the latest hardware and software including programming,
technical, and administrative support. SHARCnet is used daily by
researchers not only from its nearly 20 strong member institutions but
also by researchers from around the world.
The Laurier SHARCNET Research Symposium 2009 (LSRS 2009) is open to everyone interested in High Performance Computing. This Symposium provides a rare opportunity to hear how researchers from WLU are using SHARCNET to broaden and accelerate their research progress putting them at the leading edge in their respective fields.
If you are curious about how SHARCnet can impact your research work at Wilfrid Laurier then you are cordially invited to attend any or all of the talks. It will also be an excellent chance to ask any questions during the discussion/refreshment sessions and meet other WLU SHARCnet researchers.
All talks will be held in Room BA 111. See Laurier Map for the exact location of the BA (Bricker Academic) building.
