Presentations, posters, panels and more – MCS researchers play active role at SC22

Sharing our expertise in applied mathematics, computational science, computer science and engineering, researchers in the Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) division at Argonne National Laboratory will play a major role at SC22 on Nov. 13–18, 2022.

As the SC22 logo indicates, the theme this year is HPC Accelerates, which reflects the rapid pace with which high-performance computing is advancing. Following is a list of the exciting activities we will participate in (MCS staff names denoted in bold).
