Applications open now for Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing
Doctoral students, postdocs, and computational scientists should apply before March 4 to attend this training program from July 28-August 9, 2019 at Argonne. It will cover topics including computer architectures and predicted evolution, data analysis and visualization, and other critical topics. More information at this website
Scientists move quantum optic networks a step closer to reality
A team of scientists from Argonne, Northwestern, and the University of Chicago have moved quantum optic networks a step closer to reality. The ability to precisely control the interactions of light and matter at the nanoscale could help such a network transmit larger amounts of data more quickly and securely than an electrical network.
