HPC4EI workshop to highlight opportunities for supercomputing to shape manufacturing’s future

The High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation program will be hosting a special in-person workshop to discuss further deployment of high performance computing (HPC) to advance manufacturing on Oct. 18-19 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) University of California Livermore Collaboration Center (UCLCC)

The workshop will explore future developments in the HPC4EI program, which is managed by LLNL for the Department of Energy (DOE), in collaboration with DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO).

The workshop will identify challenges faced by the U.S. manufacturing sector that could potentially be addressed through DOE HPC resources and encourage dialogue and networking between government programs, manufacturing companies, national laboratories and the broader research community.

Attendees will learn about the HPC4EI program and other programs sponsored by government agencies that apply HPC to manufacturing, as well as HPC solutions that have already been developed and can be more broadly applied in industry.

Workshop organizers will solicit feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including U.S. manufacturing firms, small and medium-sized manufacturers, past participants in HPC4EI funding calls, U.S. government agencies and DOE national laboratories. DOE will use this feedback to develop future program plans in response to the challenges and needs identified.

The event will include presentations from DOE offices including AMMTO, the Industrial Efficiency & Decarbonization Office and the DOE Office of Science, as well as the Department of Defense, NVIDIA, Rescale, the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute, Synopsys and HPC4EI industrial partners from large and small companies.

The UCLCC is located in the Livermore Valley Open Campus. Register for the event. For questions, contact HPC4EI.
