NSCI: High-Performance Computing Security Workshop

In July of 2015, the President of the United States issued Executive Order 13702 to create a National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI). The goal of the NSCI is to maximize the benefits of High-Performance Computing (HPC) for economic competitiveness and scientific discovery. Security for HPC systems is essential for HPC systems to provide the anticipated benefits. The purpose of this workshop is to identify security priorities and principles that should be incorporated into the strategy of the NSCI, to bring together stakeholders from industry, academia, and Government, and also to identify gaps that should be addressed.
