EFree Science Presented at EFRC PI Meeting

The 2017 EFRC PI meeting was held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington DC on July 24-25.  After plenary lectures on the possibilities for exascale computing and the future of quantum information science, the meeting featured highlight presentations from each of the EFRC, CMS and Hub directors, along with technical talks and poster presentations by personnel from the EFRCs. 

EFree provided one technical talk from each of the three current Center-wide projects, and five posters that described ongoing research in the Center.  Presenters and titles from EFree were:
