The Department of
Energy’s (DOE's) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) and Lawrence
Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory (LBNL), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invite you to participate in a High Performance Computing for
Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) conference focused on “Spurring Innovation in U.S. Manufacturing Through Advanced Computing.” The conference will be held on the evening of March 2, 2017 and all day on March 3, 2017, in San Diego, CA.
A revolution in manufacturing is being spurred by adoption of advanced technologies. High Performance Computing (HPC) enables innovation that shortens development, guides designs, optimizes processes, prequalifies parts, reduces testing, reduces energy intensity, minimizes green house gas emissions, and ultimately improves economic competitiveness.
HPC4Mfg Program empowers public/private partnerships by funding HPC
experts at the national laboratories to work directly with manufacturers to apply advanced computing to their specific challenges
that will have high impact on increasing energy efficiency and advancing
clean energy technologies. Program elements also address development of a
more computationally savvy workforce.
The goal of this conference is to bring together members from the U.S. manufacturers
community, national laboratories, and universities to discuss the
current state of manufacturing globally and within the U.S. Where is HPC
currently being used successfully? What are the barriers for broader
adoption? We will review the progress and impact of the HPC4Mfg Program to date
in helping break down those barriers and elicit feedback on how the
Program can be applied more broadly and evolved to increase its impact
on U.S. manufacturing competitiveness.
We would value and
highly encourage your participation in this conversation. Online
registration, hotel details,
agenda, and additional information on the event will be available in the
coming weeks. In the meantime, please let us now of your interest by pre-registering so we
can plan accordingly.* We encourage you to share this notice to other
