Please Join Our Efforts in SC Mentoring!!

The SC Mentor–Protégé Program supports the growth of a vibrant HPC community by connecting students with experienced mentors. For SC18, the Students@SC and Early Career programs are joining forces to unify their mentoring activities. By jointly designing and hosting an exciting series of activities, we anticipate this merger will create an even stronger mentoring community.

Supercomputing History: The Cloud Before the Cloud – Metacomputing and Heterogeneous Supercomputing

The term “metacomputing” was coined around 1987 by NCSA Director, Larry Smarr. But the genesis of metacomputing at NCSA took place years earlier, when the center was founded in 1986. Smarr’s goal was to provide the research community with a “Seamless Web” linking the user interface on the workstation and supercomputers. By 1988, NCSA’s vision
