LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Jan. 27, 2020—Candace Culhane, a program/project director in Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Directorate for Simulation and Computation, has been selected as the general chair for the 2022 SC Conference (SC22).
“We are thrilled to announce that Candy Culhane is the SC22 General Chair. She brings to the conference her deep knowledge and practical experience in working with the high-performance computing industry sector, national laboratories, and supercomputer centers,” said Michela Taufer, the Jack Dongarra Professor at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and SC Steering Committee chair.
Held annually, SC is the international conference for high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.
The field of HPC is changing rapidly, as seen by the rise of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics, while scientific computing remains critical to many research areas. Because of this, Culhane is designing the conference to focus on change, and the applications that change enables.
Culhane has spent her career developing technology and leading teams that deliver a range of products, from cutting edge research and technical development to architecture solutions and systems. Throughout her career she has been results driven, developing HPC systems and underlying technology, often in advance of more widespread adoption. She has led large organizations, managing change driven by rapid technology development.
She has been a part of the SC Conference community since 1992.
