Dreaming Big: Using Research Computing to Advance Your Science

Brian Bockelman, PhD
Associate Scientist
Morgridge Institute for Research

What happens when the scientific problem you want to tackle outgrows your laptop? Just as scientists make the progression from pen and paper to spreadsheet to programming languages, we reach for different techniques and approaches to utilize computing at a large scale for our endeavors.

At UW–Madison, we encourage researchers to “think big:” What problems would you tackle if you had an infinite amount of computing capacity? Given the investments at the local and national scale, hardware is rarely the limit; rather, the limit is automation. Within the Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC), we innovate and develop technologies that enable researchers to automate their workloads and grow their computational research across orders of magnitude. In this talk, I’ll overview the basic concepts of research computing, how we solve the problems on campus with software like the HTCondor Software Suite and Pelican, and resources available on the campus to move your research forward.
