ORNL is upgrading its Jaguar supercomputer to become Titan, a Cray XK6 that will be capable of 10 to 20 petaflops by early 2013. To prepare users for impending changes to the computer’s architecture, OLCF staff held a series of workshops January 23 through 27.
Hai Ah Nam, a computational scientist a the OLCF, and Channa Palmer, ORNL university recruiter, led the SCUWP group through tours of ORNL’s historic Graphite Reactor, Spallation Neutron Source, OLCF, and the Everest Powerwall, a 30-foot screen for scientific visualizations.
ORNL was once again a major player at high-performance computing’s (HPC’s) premier conference, SC11, which took place in Seattle, WA from November 12-18.
The Titan Summit workshop held August 15–17, 2011, covered the evolution to the next level of high-performance computational resources, enabling more groundbreaking research in climate, energy creation and storage, biology, chemistry, astrophysics, and materials.
The OLCF’s Rebecca Hartman-Baker and Adam Simpson added their expertise recently to a weeklong workshop designed to bring more chemistry faculty and students into the world of high-performance computing.
