As #CS dept expands, one critical field still lags behind: #cybersecurity: http://ow.ly/10D5sL @theofficialacm http://pic.twitter.com/BxceYAvUTN
None of the top 10 U.S. computer science programs requires students to take a security course to graduate, a new study says.

+U.S. Department of Energy's +Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) will be 30 years old in 2016, which makes it one of the oldest networks in the world. It actually predates the creation of the commercial network. http://ow.ly/VLYlk via +HPCwire  
In tandem with high-performance computing, high-speed nationwide and global infrastructure networks provide the essential backbone for today's collaborativ

In Dec 2015, #NERSC moved the Edison ‪#supercomputer‬ from its former home in downtown Oakland to #BerkeleyLab's brand new Shyh Wang Hall. This video shows how they did it, how's that for ‪#motivationmonday‬? #HPC

Did you know that in addition to the 133,824 compute cores for running scientific apps, 357 TB of memory and 7.56 PB of online disk storage, #NERSC's Edison supercomputer also contains a rubber chicken for good luck?

Introduction
Berkeley Lab's Computing Sciences organization researches, develops, and deploys new tools and technologies to advance research in such areas as global climate change, combustion, fusion energy, nanotechnology, biology, and astrophysics.

The Computing Sciences organization was created to advance computational science throughout the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science research programs. The organization includes:

The Computational Research Division (CRD)

CRD creates computational tools and techniques that enable scientific breakthroughs by conducting applied research and development in computer science, computational science, and applied mathematics. http://crd.lbl.gov/


The National Energy Research Scientific Research Computing (NERSC) Center

NERSC is home to some of the world’s most efficient supercomputers. This center is a leader in providing systems, services and expertise to advance computational science throughout the Department of Energy research community. http://www.nersc.gov/


The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet)

ESnet provides high-bandwidth, reliable connections to researchers at national laboratories, universities and other institutions, across the United States. These world-class connections provide the collaborative capabilities needed to address some of the world’s most important scientific challenges. http://www.es.net/
