XSEDE’s Extended Collaborative Support program shares insights via symposium series
Talks open to all with slides and audio posted on YouTube
When the subject is data from the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), the sky’s the limit. The LSST, which will house the world’s largest camera, perched on a mountaintop in northern Chile, has as a goal detecting signatures of dark energy and dark matter. The challenge of what to do with the coming torrent of data from the LSST was the first topic in a new symposium series from XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), the National Science Foundation cyberinfrastructure program.
