Carter Kozak'13 awarded second grant to attend TeraGrid conference
Elon junior Carter Kozak, a computing sciences major, earned one of 100 competitively awarded student positions at the International TeraGrid Conference held July 18-21 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Funded by the NSF, TeraGrid is the world's largest, most comprehensive distributed cyberinfrastructure for open scientific research with resources at 11 partner sites around the U.S. to create an integrated, persistent computational resource. TeraGrid resources currently include more than a petaflop/s (a thousand trillion calculations per second) of computing capability, and more than 30 petabytes of online and archival data storage, with rapid access and retrieval over high-performance networks.
Kozak has been using TeraGrid resources as part of his ongoing undergraduate research about collection and storage of data about free and open source software development with faculty mentor Megan Squire, associate professor of computing sciences.
