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

ion is the true lifeblood of sustainable exascale computing."

Exascale computing revolves around building the next generation of a supercomputer capable of performing a million trillion calculations. The U.S., China, Europe, and Japan are all vying to build an exascale computer by 2020, although that goal has been thrown into some doubt by barriers, such as in chip design and the energy needed to power such massive systems. Still, the benefits to society, health, and innovation are considered to far outweigh the challenges.

In addition to being the vice president for research and economic development at the UI, Reed is university chair in computational science and bioinformatics and professor of computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and medicine.

Joining Reed at the hearing will be Roscoe Giles, chairman, Advanced Scientific Computing Advisory Committee, which produced a report for the Department of Energy in 2010 examining the opportunities and challenges of exascale computing; Rick Stevens, associate laboratory director for computing, environment and life sciences at Argonne National Laboratory; and Dona Crawford, associate director for computation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

The subcommittee's chair is Rep. Cynthia Lummis, Republican from Wyoming. The panel is part of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith, Republican from Texas.
