When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Grand Challenges in Fusion Energy Sciences & Computing at the Extreme Scale

SESSION: Modeling and Simulation

EVENT TYPE: Masterworks

TIME: 11:15AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):William Tang

ROOM:TCC 301/302

ABSTRACT:
This presentation will highlight the scientific and computational challenges facing the proposed U.S. national Fusion Simulation Program (FSP) – a new U.S. Department of Energy initiative supported by its Offices of FES and ASCR (Advanced Scientific Computing Research). The primary objective of the FSP is to develop a predictive integrated simulation capability for magnetically-confined fusion plasmas that are properly validated against experiments in regimes relevant for producing practical fusion energy. This will demand computing resources in the multi-petascale range and beyond together with the associated multi-core algorithmic formulation needed to address burning plasma issues relevant to ITER. Plasma physicists will need to closely collaborate with computer scientists and applied mathematicians to develop advanced software that is validated against experimental data from tokamaks around the world. Illustrative results provide great encouragement for being able to include increasingly realistic dynamics in extreme-scale computing campaigns to enable predictive simulations with unprecedented physics fidelity.
