Iowa VP for Research addresses next-generation supercomputers at congressional hearing
Date:5/21/2013

The University of Iowa's vice president for research and economic development will urge congressional lawmakers to support exascale computing, the next generation of supercomputers designed to tackle complex societal questions, from climate change to the human mind.

Daniel Reed will appear at a hearing on Wednesday, May 22, of the House Subcommittee on Energy, titled, "America's Next Generation Supercomputer: The Exascale Challenge." The hearing begins at 10 a.m. in Room 2318 of the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington. It will be webcast live.

Reed has been actively involved in advanced computing for nearly 30 years, leading the National Science Foundation's National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, the Renaissance Computing Institute in the Research Triangle in North Carolina as well as being the chief architect for the NSF TeraGrid. Before coming to Iowa last fall, Reed was an executive at Microsoft Corp., helping shape the company's vision for technology innovations in parallel and cloud computing and its engagement with governments and institutions worldwide.

In his remarks, Reed will note the United States remains the leader in high-performance computing, occupying first, second, and fourth on the list of the world's fastest supercomputers. Yet, he will warn the nation's superiority is eroding, and will be jeopardized if partnerships among governmental agencies, with industry as well as adequate funding are not pursued.

"U.S. consumers and businesses are an increasingly small minority of the global market for mobile devices and cloud services," Reed will say in his remarks. "We live in a 'post-PC' world where U.S. companies compete in a global device ecosystem. Unless we are vigilant, these economic and technical changes could further shift the center of enabling technology R&D away from the U.S."

He continues, "A vibrant U.S. ecosystem of people and technical innovat
