Rain or shine, the hackathon marches on with food, fun, collaboration, and sometimes surprises. Experience the play-by-play of our seasonal event.
Our research explores a number of different scientific simulation fields, most of which have particular significance to LLNL programs (e.g., high-energy-density physics). Other scientific simulation work showcases the Lab’s high performance computing capabilities in collaborative efforts with scientists at other institutions.

HPC is a linchpin of the Stockpile Stewardship Program. Scientists at Livermore use HPC to simulate the behavior of matter under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure, which are characteristic of nuclear detonations.
Sierra is the latest in a series of leading-edge ASC Program supercomputers and was procured under the CORAL (Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne, and Livermore national laboratories) partnership.
Supercomputing ‘18 (SC18), held Nov. 11–16 in Dallas, broke records for attendees and exhibitors and saw LLNL once again make its presence felt on the world’s biggest HPC stage.
On October 26, 2018, the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration, LLNL, and industry partners officially unveiled Sierra, one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, at a dedication ceremony to celebrate the system’s completion.
