2018 OLCF USER SURVEY NOW AVAILABLE
The 2018 OLCF User Survey is now open. We truly value your feedback and encourage all users to complete this important survey. To take it, please visit https://orausurvey.orau.org/n/OLCFSurvey2018.aspx.
APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR BETTER SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Do you have something to share with the scientific software community? Do you have a passion to learn and teach others about better software? Are you affiliated with a US-based institution that can receive funding from the US Department of Energy? If so, consider applying for a Better Scientific Software (BSSw) Fellowship. Fellows receive an award of up to $25,000 that can be used for an activity that promotes better scientific software, such as organizing a workshop or tutorial, or creating content to engage the scientific software community.
For more information and to apply, please see https://bssw.io/fellowship. Applications are due October 16.
EOS DEFAULT MODULE CHANGES (OCT 15)
New versions of software have been installed on Eos and will be set as default on October 15 unless issues are reported. Users are encouraged to use the new versions and report issues to firstname.lastname@example.org. To view a list of the new software versions, please visit the Software News page.
APS FOCUS SESSION ON ACCOMPLISHMENTS ON PRE-EXASCALE SYSTEMS
The 2019 Annual March Meeting of the American Physical Society will hold a Division of Computational Physics focus topic session entitled Building the bridge to exascale: applications and opportunities for materials, chemistry, and biology (DCOMP 16.01.02).
This focus session will bring together researchers with experience in the effective utilization of high-performance data and compute infrastructure, including supercomputers, communication networks, and data resources to achieve breakthrough scientific results. This includes researchers at experimental facilities such as light and neutron sources with extreme data-science requirements, including machine-learning approaches, and researchers in computational materials, computational chemistry and computational biophysics with experience in large scale simulations. Also of interest software development efforts which will enable novel science on pre-exascale and emerging architectures.
The abstract submission deadline is Oct. 26, 2018. Abstracts can be submitted through the American Physics Society March Meeting website.
