Researchers are working to integrate observation and modeling to create a better picture of Earth’s climate as a whole. One researcher committed to this goal is Dali Wang of DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Whereas laboratory experiments and various imaging methods could offer only hypotheses, for the first time OLCF”s Titan gave researchers precise predictions about nanocrystal surface development.
ORNL and OLCF were well represented with several speakers discussing their work on Titan at the March Meeting of the American Physical Society.
The INCITE program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains.
The OLCF has selected the next set of partnership projects into its Center for Accelerated Application Readiness program.
A team of researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), led by computational scientist Yifeng Cui, was awarded NVIDIA’s 2015 Global Impact Award for its work developing a GPU-accelerated code that simulates high-frequency earthquakes.
In preparation for Summit, computer scientists and support staff are leaning on two modest-but-mighty test systems to explore Summit’s cutting-edge architecture.
Buddy Bland, project director at the OLCF, has been named one of HPC Wire’s “People to Watch” in 2015. Bland is recognized for his 30-year-career contributions in high-performance computing.
Team members of the OLCF hosted staff from ALCF, and NERSC for a meeting with high-performance computing vendors late last month to discuss strategies for application readiness and performance portability in preparation for the next generation of supercomputers.
To make sure Summit is ready for researchers from day one, the OLCF Scientific Computing, Technology Integration, and High-Performance Computing Operations groups are collaborating on a test bed for staff and vendors to help the OLCF prepare for Summit.
