Announcing Two Humanities High Performance Computing Events

September 4, 2008 | By Brett Bobley

As regular readers know, the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities has an ongoing Humanities High Performance Computing (HHPC) Initiative. I wanted to let you know about two upcoming HHPC-related events.

On Monday, October 6, NEH staff will present at a workshop here in Washington, D.C., entitled "Humanities Applications for the World Community Grid." This full-day workshop will feature IBM computer scientists who will conduct a hands-on session describing how high performance computer systems can be used for humanities research.

On Tuesday, November 18, NEH Chairman Bruce Cole will give a talk entitled "Humanities Scholarship in the Petabyte Age" at the Supercomputing 2008 Conference in Austin, Texas. He also plans to announce the grantees from the recent NEH/DOE Humanities High Performance Computing program. So if you are in the Austin area, please do stop by.
