Berkeley Lab Comes to SC11 to Celebrate!

Attending SC11?  We invite you to stop by our exhibit booth (#512) and learn more about our exciting projects in our Computational Research Division and two user facilities; National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), which happens to be celebrating a milestone! We will be hosting a number of talks and round-table discussions (see below).

Are you or someone you know interested in exploring career opportunities with Berkeley Lab? If so, you can arrange a time for a 1:1 discussion with me, attend my round-table discussion "Careers at Berkeley Lab" (Wednesday, November 16 at 4-5pm), or simply "drop-in" to our booth during the conference. I will also be attending the SC11 Student Job Fair on Wednesday, November 16 (10:30am - 3pm).

  • 7-8pm: A toast to ESnets 25 years of networking leadership and the Advanced Networking Initiative. Demonstration of 100 Gbps capability using astrophysics data. Nothing would be more appropriate than to celebrate our quarter century mark than SC11!
