March 6 — The National Petascale Computing Facility (NPCF) will be providing a first-hand look at Blue Waters, one of the fastest supercomputers in the world on March 9 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. With a sustained speed over 1 petaflop, Blue Waters is capable of performing more than 1 quadrillion calculations per second.
In addition to viewing Blue Waters, the infrastructure required for this powerful machine is also available for viewing.
This is a self-guided tour. Come any time during the day and stay as little or as long as you'd like.
Location: The NPCF is located at 1725 S. Oak St. in Champaign, Ill., west of Assembly Hall, at the corner of Oak St. and St. Mary's Road.
Parking: Free parking is available across the street in Lot E-14. From Lot E-14 you can board the shuttle buses for Engineering Open House, Explore ACES, and the Naturally Illinois Expo.
Tours of the Blue Waters supercomputer are offered in conjunction with Engineering Open House.
