Leadership Computing for Combustion Apps on INCITE and PRACE Systems


“The INCITE and PRACE programs give access to increasing resources allowing these technologies to be applied to industrial scale systems. From past and ongoing research examples performed at CERFACS, this presentation highlights the scientific breakthroughs allowed by HPC on exascale machines for reacting flows for gas turbines and explosions in buildings.”

Computational Science at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility

Paul Messina, Director of Science at Argonne

Paul Messina from Argonne presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “ALCF’s most powerful computer — Mira, an IBM Blue Gene/Q system has nearly one million cores. The good news is that many scientific and engineering applications are able to utilize such levels of parallelism, as will be shown by presenting a sampling of projects from varied scientific and engineering domains that are using ALCF systems.”

Leadership Computing Challenge issues Call for Proposals

The ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge has issued its Call for Proposals for 2014. Open to scientists from the research community in industry, academia, and national laboratories, the ALCC program allocates up to 30% of the computational resources at ASCR’s supercomputing facilities.

Leadership Systems Power High-Impact Science

Over at HPC for Energy, Julia White writes that in the ten years since its inception, the INCITE program continues to award supercomputing resources in its vision to couple high-end computing with high-impact science. As far reaching as the scientific and engineering domains welcomed into the INCITE program, are their accomplishments. In 2007, modeling the […]

NICS, Adaptive Computing, and Intel: Leadership in HPC

In this video from Moabcon 2013, Troy Baer presents: NICS, Adaptive Computing, and Intel: Leadership in HPC. An Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer named Beacon, deployed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) of the University of Tennessee, tops the current Green500 list, which ranks the world’s fastest supercomputers based on their power efficiency. To earn […]

HPC500 Creates New Opportunities for Leadership

Douglas Eadline writes that, as the HPC market grows, new organizations like the HPC500 could replace the old guard of movers and shakers in the industry. As HPC continues to grow in academic, government, and commercial sectors, one might wonder just who are the current movers and shakers of the HPC industry and community? In […]

Interview: Bull to Showcase HPC Leadership at ISC’12

Our series of features on European HPC vendors continues with this interview with Pascale Bernier-Bruna from Bull. The company recently deployed the hybrid 2 Petaflop CURIE supercomputer, the first French Tier0 system open to scientists through the French participation in the PRACE research infrastructure. insideHPC: What is the current status of CURIE, the 2 Petaflop […]

Conway: Where Does Asia Stand? Reaching for Real-World HPC Leadership

Steve Conway from IDC has written an interesting piece over at Scientific Computing entitled: Where Does Asia Stand? The Rising Supercomputing Power is Reaching for Real-World HPC Leadership. Less well-publicized than Tianhe-1A is the fact that China’s government also deployed five public HPC cloud computing centers recently, with free access for industry. The government views […]

Video: Interview with IDC on their Strategic Agenda for European Supercomputing Leadership

In this video, Mike Bernhardt from The Exascale Report interviews IDC’s Earl Joseph and Steve Conway about their recent study: A Strategic Agenda for European Leadership in Supercomputing – HPC 2020. The report is available as a free download.

Report: Increased HPC Investment Will Lead Europe to Industrial Leadership

IDC has published a new report for the European Commission that recommends an unprecidented supercomputing strategy for Europe. To help Europe advance to achieve worldwide scientific and industrial leadership, the report recommends that the EC step up investments in HPC resources between now and the year 2020. Looking ahead to what will be needed for […]
