Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility to Celebrate 25th Anniversary at SC17

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) booth (#613) at SC17 will be the scene for the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility’s 25th Anniversary celebration Monday, November 13, at 7:15pm MST. The celebration, which will take place during the Opening Gala of the conference, is to feature a short video, brief remarks, and a toast.

The facility’s history can be traced from the High Performance Computing Act of 1991 and the creation of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Center for Computational Sciences in May 1992 to the passage of the DOE High-End Computing Revitalization Act of 2004 when the Center for Computational Science was selected as the first DOE Leadership Computing Facility and was renamed the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF).  Twenty-five years in, the OLCF remains committed to its founding mission to deliver unprecedented tools for scientific discovery and global competitiveness.
