SC15 Blog Puts the Spotlight on Invited Talks


SC15 has stepped up with a series of blog posts previewing the conference this year, an effort that seems much more engaging than the random press releases we’ve seen in the past.

BSC Opens Productivity Center of Excellence for HPC Apps


Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) announced the opening of their Performance Optimization and Productivity (POP) Center of Excellence. With the POP, developers of applications that require the use of High Performance Computing can count now with the free advice of European experts to analyze the performance of its codes.

Video: The Road to Exascale


“Exascale levels of computing pose many system- and application-level computational challenges. Mellanox as a provider of end-to-end communication services is progressing the foundation of the InfiniBand architecture to meet the exascale challenges. This presentation will focus on recent technology improvements which significantly improve InfiniBand’s scalability, performance, and ease of use.”

Today the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) announced that it has made significant upgrades to its cloud-based storage system to include a new range of computing services designed to support science-based researchers, especially those with large data requirements that preclude commercial cloud use, or who require collaboration with cloud engineers for building cloud-based services.

Job of the Week: Tenure-track Faculty Position in HPC at Cal Poly


The Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Computer Science Department is hiring a tenure-track faculty position in our HPC Job of the Week.

Radio Free HPC Looks at Highlights from Fall 2015 HPC Conferences


In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team goes over a Trip Report from Rich Brueckner from insideHPC, who’s been on the road at a series of HPC conferences. We captured more that 50 talks in the past month, and we have them all right here with the very latest in High Performance Computing.

PRACE Opens 12th Call for Proposals

Today the PRACE Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe issued their 12th Call for Proposals. By providing access to some of the fastest supercomputer in Europe, the Call for Proposals targets large-scale, computationally intensive projects that would not be possible or productive without access to PRACE resources.

Kyoto University to Install Cray XC40 Supercomputer

Cray Xc40

Today Cray announced the Company has been awarded a contract to provide a Cray XC40 supercomputer to the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) at Kyoto University in Japan. The two-cabinet Cray XC40 system will provide the YITP user community with a supercomputer that occupies one-fourth of the physical footprint of the Institute’s previous system and a 4x improvement in overall compute performance. The liquid-cooled system will power a wide range of theoretical physics research at YITP, such as astrophysics, nuclear physics and particle physics, and will also serve as a shared supercomputing resource supporting theoretical physicists all across Japan.

Communication Frameworks for HPC and Big Data

DK Panda, Ohio State University

DK Panda from Ohio State University presented this talk at the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference. “Dr. Panda and his research group members have been doing extensive research on modern networking technologies including InfiniBand and 10-40GE/iWARP. His research group is currently collaborating with National Laboratories and leading InfiniBand and 10-40GE/iWARP companies on designing various subsystems of next generation high-end systems.”

German Supercomputing Sites Become Centers of Excellence for Horizon 2020


Today the European Commission announced HLRS, JSC, and LRZ have been named “Centers of Excellence for computing applications. Funded by the EC and the Horizon 2020 program, the new Centers of Excellence will provide their petascale HPC infrastructure for developing services for European users in science and industry.
