Video: Satoshi Matsuoka on the ISC 2016 Conference Program

In this video, Prof. Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology describes his role as Program Chair of ISC High Performance 2016. He talks about the transformation of the conference in recent years and admits: “This is one of the most enjoyable conferences I have ever been to.” ISC High Performance is the landmark supercomputing, networking and storage event that attracts HPC enthusiasts from all across the globe. With 3,000 attendees, it is the largest HPC conference and exhibition in Europe. Regionally, the top five countries with the greatest number of ISC conference attendees are Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, France and China. A growth in participation is projected for 2016, particularly from Asia.

PASC16 Announces Keynote Speakers

Today PASC16 announced a lineup of world-class keynote speakers for its third annual conference. The event will feature keynotes from academic and industry leaders with a special emphasis on high-performance computing, and simulation and data sciences. Building on the successful format of the last two years’ conferences, PASC16 will offer an even broader and deeper selection of technical sessions, paper tracks, information stands, and presentations from industry and academia.

European ExaNeSt Project to Pave the Way to Exascale

Today the European Consortium announced a step towards Exascale computing with the ExaNeSt project. Funded by the Horizon 2020 initiative, ExaNeSt plans to build its first straw man prototype in 2016. The Consortium consists of twelve partners, each of which has expertise in a core technology needed for innovation to reach Exascale. ExaNeSt takes the sensible, integrated approach of co-designing the hardware and software, enabling the prototype to run real-life evaluations, facilitating its scalability and maturity into this decade and beyond.

Agenda Published: HPC-Based CFD for Offshore Renewable Energy Workshop

The speaker agenda has been published for the HPC-Based CFD for Offshore Renewable Energy Workshop. The two-day event takes place April 7-8 at Lancaster University in the UK.

Video: DDN’s End-to-End HPC Data Management

In this video, Roger Goff from DDN describes how the company’s storage solutions have evolved to address the changing demands and requirements of HPC from compute all the way throughout the entire data lifecycle. “Organizations leverage the power of DDN technology and the deep technical expertise of our team to capture, store, process, analyze, collaborate and distribute data, information and content at largest scale in the most efficient, reliable and cost effective manner. Our customers include many of the world’s leading financial services firms and banks, healthcare and life science organizations, manufacturing and energy companies, government and research facilities, and web and cloud service providers.”

Video: Massive Data Sheds Light on Your Microbiome

“The human microbiome plays a role in processes as diverse as metabolism, immune function, and mental health. Yet despite the importance of this system, scientists are just beginning to uncover which microorganisms reside in and on our bodies and determine what functions they perform. The development of innovative technology and analytical methods has enabled researchers like Dr. Pollard to decode the complex interactions between our human cells and microbial brethren, and infer meaning from the staggering amounts of data 10 trillion organisms create.”

Server Radiators to Power Cloud from DATA4 Group & Qarnot Computing

Today European datacenter specialist DATA4 Group and Qarnot Computing announced a new type of distributed computing system that offers “greener and more efficient computing services.” The system is based on Qarnot’s Q.rad, a smart and connected digital heater. “Think of the device as the fusion of an electrical heater and a server. In the Q.rad model of computing, servers are placed in rooms that need heat. They are then networked together to form a physically distributed cloud computing resource.”

Bright Computing Receives Horizon 2020 Grant for Advancing System Management Technology

Today Bright Computing announced it has been awarded a grant of more than 1.5 million Euros by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 program. The grant will be used for the Bright Beyond HPC program, which focuses on enhancing and scaling Bright’s industry-leading management platform for advanced IT infrastructure, including high performance computing clusters, big data clusters, and OpenStack-based private clouds.

Apply Now for Supercomputing Summer School

The summer of 2016 will see a raft of summer schools and other initiatives to train more people in high-performance computing, including efforts to increase the diversity of HPC specialists with a specific program aimed at ethnic minorities. But interested students need to get their applications in now.

Video: Jetstream to Make HPC a Breeze for Researchers

In this video, researchers describe how the Jetstream project at Indiana University. Jetstream is a user-friendly cloud environment designed to give researchers access to interactive computing and data analysis resources on demand, whenever and wherever they want to analyze their data. It will provide a library of virtual machines designed to do discipline specific scientific analysis. Software creators and researchers will also be able to create their own customized virtual machines or their own private computing system within Jetstream.
