      Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), home to the Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), is a global leader in computing and networking research. Berkeley Lab's HPC and networking capabilities and facilities are advancing DOE research programs by providing leading resources and expertise in computational science. LBNLs display will feature scientific results obtained using NERSCs 2,528 processor IBM SP and 696-processor Cray T3E supercomputers; collaborative capabilities, including an Access Grid Node, utilizing the capabilities of ESnet; telepresence via a conference-roving robot linked to the AG and capable of providing virtual tours of the SC 2001 Exhibit Area and direct participation in the technical sessions, with audio, video, and remote control functions using a wireless interface to the Access Grid; and technical presentations by Berkeley Lab staff and NERSC users; and demonstrations of HPC tools developed at LBNL.
