NCCS and Partners Highlight Recent
Scientific Advancements at Virtual SC20 Conference

The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center partners will highlight their recent advances during SC20, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis being held virtually November 9–19, 2020.

On Tuesday, November 17 from 1:45 to 2:30 p.m. EST, Compton Tucker of NASA Goddard’s Earth Sciences Division will present the Invited Talk “Satellite Tree Enumeration Outside of Forests at the Fifty Centimeter Scale” describing research carried out at NCCS and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

From Tuesday, November 17–Thursday, November 19, SC20 will feature a virtual NASA research exhibit that includes the latest NCCS technological developments and a variety of NCCS-enabled computational science results. Visit NASA@SC20 for information about the following demonstrations:
