Supercomputing allows researchers to run large volumes of calculations in epidemiology, bioinformatics and molecular modelling. These experiments would take years to complete if worked by hand, or months if handled on slower, traditional computing platforms. Supercomputing can help our response to COVID-19 by increasing the speed with which we can model the spread of the virus, assisting in finding a vaccine and improving treatments.

Join speakers from Australia, Japan and South Korea to discuss how supercomputing in these countries is assisting with addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Date: Monday 7 December

Time: 7.30pm-8.30pm AEDT

Venue: Online – livestream at the top of this page
