Washington, DC – July 8, 2014 Dr. Robinson E. Pino, Computer Scientist and Program Manager, U.S. Department of Energy (U.S. DOE), will deliver a keynote "Extreme Computing and Data Challenges" at COM.* 2014 conference which will be held on August 4-6, 2014, Washington, DC.
The Office of Science Advanced Scientific Computing Research Program underpins DOE's world leadership in scientific computation by supporting research in applied mathematics, computer science, high-performance networks, computational partnerships and educational programs. In particular, our Computer Science research portfolio fills a critical gap in scientific computing. The computing resources required to fulfill the Office of Science mission exceed the state-of-the-art by a significant margin. Furthermore, the software tools, libraries and the distributed software environments needed to accelerate scientific discovery through modeling and simulation are beyond the realm of commercial interest. Yet, the computing resources and the applications that run on them are vital to maintaining the United States' competitiveness in the world economy. Our Computer Science research program supports research that enables computing at extreme scales and the understanding of extreme scale data from both simulations and experiments. It aims to make scientific computers as easy and effective to use as possible. This talk will focus on challenges for computing and data.
Dr. Robinson E. Pino is a Computer Scientist and Program Manager for the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program office in the Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science. In his portfolio, Dr. Pino focuses on revolutionary basic research and development efforts for high performance computing and applications that will enable our continued leadership through exascale and beyond computing and energy efficient technologies. Dr. Pino has expertise within technology development, program management, government, industry, and academia. He previously worked as Director of Cyber Research at ICF International advancing the state of the art in cybersecurity by applying autonomous concepts from computational intelligence and neuromorphic computing for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and various DoD and U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) collaborators, industry and academia.

About COM.* Conference
COM.* 2014 has expanded to three more emerging tech areas, Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing. COM.Geo has been playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial research and application since it was initiated 5 years ago.
This year, COM.* conferences and summits will focus on COM.BigData 2014, COM.DriverelessCar 2014, and COM.Geo 2014. All three will take place in the same time frame and conference center in August in Washington DC, USA as well as COM.* online Virtual Conference center.
Several leading keynotes and insightful panels from U.S. federal government and world-class industries and universities will be open to all the attendees of the three conferences and summits. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn trends, share visions, exchange ideas, discuss details, and expand networking circles.
