Grand Challenge Computing at LLNL

This brief video, made to accompany an article in LLNL’s magazine, highlights some of the successes from the first decade of the Computational Grand Challenge Program. The program makes unclassified computing resources available to Laboratory scientists and engineers through a yearly competition. Winning proposals, as judged by a panel of internal and external reviewers, receive millions of hours of computing time to complete projects that push the frontiers of computational science, stimulate a scientific discipline, and enhance the value of Livermore’s programs and missions. Advances in high performance computing hardware have benefitted the program and expanded the size and scope of what can be modeled.
