Today the Pawsey Supercomputing Center announced $21.6 million of funding from the Australian government. The operational funding, which runs until 2020-21, allows the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to continue providing world-class resources and expertise in supercomputing, data and visualization and recognizes the WA Government’s significant commitment to cementing the State’s place as a scientific computing hub.
PNNL researchers are using supercomputers to take on two of the main challenges of exascale: energy efficiency and resiliency. Their simulations show that dynamic voltage scaling, also known as undervolting, can reduce power consumption and leverage existing mainstream resilience techniques at scale for improving system failure rates.
Today Sandia National Laboratories announced that researcher Mark Taylor has received the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 2014 Secretary’s Honor Award — the department’s highest non-monetary employee recognition — for his work as chief computational scientist for DOE’s Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME) executive council team.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe in Europe has published the first edition of PRACE Women in HPC Magazine, a collection of success stories celebrating the contribution women make to HPC and computational science. Designed to put the spotlight on the scientific advances made in the past year, the magazine tells the story of women who help make PRACE a world-leading force in HPC-enabled science and the march towards Exascale computing.
