U-M, U Victoria Partner on HPC for High Energy Physics Research
Physicists at the University of Michigan and the University of Victoria in Canada have implemented a multi-site supercomputing project to help them share massive volumes of data with the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland and 100 computing centers around the world.
In 2015, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will begin "colliding elements at the highest highest energies ever achieved in a particle accelerator," according to a news release. Physicists at the University of Michigan and the University of Victoria will use the data from CERN to help discover new particles and forces. Read more
