Accelerated computing continues to gain momentum. This year the GPU Technology Conference will feature 90 sessions on HPC and Supercomputing. “Sessions will focus on how computational and data science are used to solve traditional HPC problems in healthcare, weather, astronomy, and other domains. GPU developers can also connect with innovators and researchers as they share their groundbreaking work using GPU computing.”
A huge barrier in converting cellulose polymers to biofuel lies in removing other biomass polymers that subvert this chemical process. To overcome this hurdle, large-scale computational simulations are picking apart lignin, one of those inhibiting polymers, and its interactions with cellulose and other plant components. The results point toward ways to optimize biofuel production and […]
The DoE INCITE program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns in a broad array of science, engineering and computer science domains.
The U.S Department of Energy has awarded a total of 80 million processor hours on Titan supercomputer to an astrophysical project based at the DOE’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). The grants will enable researchers to study the dynamics of magnetic fields in the high-energy density plasmas that lasers create. Such plasmas can closely approximate those that occur in some astrophysical objects.
