This summer the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility brought in 29 students whose backgrounds range from computer architecture, to mathematics and statistics, to artificial intelligence.
This past spring Jason Anderson, high-performance computing systems administrator for the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, was elected president of the Large Tape Users Group.
Staff members from ORNL and the OLCF once again took leadership roles at the annual Cray User Group meeting,
OLCF’s Advanced Data and Workflow Group and the Computer Science and Mathematics Division’s Scientific Data Group have worked together to scale R—the most commonly used data analytics software in academia and a rising programming language in high-performance computing—to the OLCF’s Rhea, Eos, and Titan systems.
One hundred thirty-three people attended the 2016 Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) User Meeting, making it the largest user meeting to date.
The University of Delaware hosted this year’s second OLCF-involved hackathon, where programmers from national laboratories, universities, and vendors gather to share application GPU portability expertise and learn how to program for a hybrid CPU–GPU machine like the OLCF’s Titan supercomputer.
The Oak Ridge and Argonne Leadership Computing Facilities, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, and the Interoperable Design of Extreme-scale Application Software project are presenting a series of webinars—“Best Practices for HPC Software Developers.”
Researchers came together to use Titan’s GPUs for two X-Stack project teams to develop demonstrations for their research prototypes.
