Summary:
Reporters and the general public are welcome at a Feb. 9 seminar on the challenges and potential of using massive processing power in computing. The seminar will be held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, between Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

"Making It Happen: High-Performance Computing," a seminar on the challenges and potential of massive processing power, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 1999, in the Parsons Auditorium, Building 1, at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md. Speakers include Dr. Thomas Sterling, Senior Scientist with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory; Dr. George Paul, Jr. of IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center; and Dr. Jayadev Misra of the University of Texas at Austin.

This program is part of APL's ongoing Cyber Tech Seminar Series, which has been examining the impact of technological developments on society and its institutions. Presentations are given by leading experts from industry, government, and academia. Previous seminars covered new forms of human-computer interaction, information system security, Internet bandwidth and architecture issues, and operating systems.

The seminar's morning session, which runs from 9 a.m. through noon EST, is open to the media and the general public. Additional information on this seminar and previous ones, along with directions to APL, can be found at the APL web site.
