“The main topics for our April 7-9 meeting in Santa Fe are industrial partnerships with large HPC centers and how they’re working, with perspectives from the U.S., France and the UK. We’ll also take another hard look at what’s happening with processors, coprocessors and accelerators and at potential disruptive technologies, as well as zeroing in on the HPC storage market and trends and the CORAL procurement that involves Oak Ridge, Argonne and Livermore.”
“Systems like Argonne’s Mira, an IBM Blue Gene/Q system with nearly a million cores, can enable breakthroughs in science, but to use them productively requires expertise in computer architectures, parallel programming, mathematical software, data management and analysis, performance analysis tools, software engineering, and so on. Our training program exposes the participants to all those topics and provides hands-on exercises for experimenting with most of them.”
In this whitepaper from Adaptive Computing – we learn about the new concept around Big Workflow and how it directly addresses the needs of critical, data-intensive, applications. By creating more intelligence around data control, Big Workflow directly provides a way for big data, HPC, and cloud environments to interoperate, and do so dynamically based on what applications are running.
Ramesh Balakrishnan from Argonne presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The main scientific challenge in fluid dynamics remains that of gaining better insight into the physics of turbulence and its role in the transfer of momentum, heat, and mass in engineering applications which include the aerodynamics of high lift devices, chemically reacting flows in combustion systems, such as combustors of jet engines, and the aeroacoustics of low and high speed flows.”
Babek Hejazialhosseini from ETH presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk outlines the challenges that hinder the effective solution of complex flows on contemporary supercomputers. It demonstrates several generalizable techniques towards achieving unprecedented performance on both IBM Blue Gene/Q and Cray supercomputers. Simulation of cloud cavitation collapse, a challenging flow problem with a broad range of applications, is presented.”
