Dear attendees of the 2018 IRIS Workshop:

Please consider attending a Special Interest Group meeting on High-Performance Computing for data processing and modeling in seismology.

Wednesday, June 13th from 2:30-3:30pm in the Taos room

Conveners: Carl Tape and Lorraine Hwang

Aim: to share progress from the HPCWG ( and to get feedback from the participants

Description: As the volume of archived seismic data increases, the need to have these data processed and modeled in new and more powerful computational systems has become more important. The High Performance Computing and Seismic Data Working Group (HPCWG) was established to assess the HPC needs of the seismological community for processing seismic data and for performing simulations. We will share results from 350 responses to a 2016 survey of computational needs in seismology. We will then discuss possible paths for addressing the needs identified in the survey. This SIG seeks input from seismic data users or seismic modelers who envision scientific problems that would benefit from greater, and easier to use, computational resources.
