Dr. Xiaoge Wang to speak on High Performance Computing in China --June 29th
July 14, 2006
In this talk, the current development and status of high performance computing in Mainland China will be introduced. An overview of two projects, ChinaGrid and CNGrid, which are the largest development of China’s infrastructure for high performance computing, will be presented, along with a brief introduction of CERNET, the network that serves as the backbone of ChinaGrid. Then, a closer look at the high performance computing related teaching and research activities in Tsinghua University (one of the top universities in science and engineering in mainland China) will be presented. A summary of some collaborative projects with other institutions, especially those with institutions outside China, are also presented. Altogether, a picture of the current state of high performance computing at Tsinghua University and its potentials for further collaborations with Purdue University is drawn for the audience.
