By Dona Crawford; Last July, President Obama issued an executive order that created a coordinated federal strategy for HPC research, development, and deployment called the U.S. National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI).

By Cynthia R. McIntyre; This is an exciting period as emerging and frontier market economies (as defined by the financial sector) adopt advanced technologies for economic competitiveness, societal benefit, and scientific discovery. Most notably, these economies are evaluating and acquiring advanced information and communication technologies as competitive platforms for socio-economic benefit.
By John West; Given the impact of HPC, it is important that we do everything we can to ensure that we are including the best solutions possible in the technologies that we build, and for that we need to be sure we are asking the broadest sampling of people for their best ideas.
By Sharan Kalwani; One of the main reasons I got into computing, admittedly a long time ago, was the potential that I personally saw in using this unbelievably powerful new tool towards addressing the needs of the society we live in.
