Jülich Installs New QPACE3 Supercomputer for Quantum Chromodynamics

A new supercomputer has been deployed at the Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC) in Germany. Called QPACE3, the new 447 Teraflop machine is named for “QCD Parallel Computing on the Cell. “QPACE3 is being used by the University of Regensburg for a joint research project with the University of Wuppertal and the Jülich Supercomputing Center for numerical simulations of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), which is one of the fundamental theories of elementary particle physics. Such simulations serve, among other things, to understand the state of the universe shortly after the Big Bang, for which a very high computing power is required.”

SC17 Preview turns the Spotlight on Making Connections

SC17 General Chair Bernd Mohr introduced the theme of the upcoming conference with these fine words: “One connection can change your life. Our community is making millions of connections every day: by bringing together people at workshops, conferences, in research teams and projects, by connecting extreme-scale supercomputers to instruments and visualization and data analytics systems, by inspiring collaborations between different fields of science And all with the goal of making the greatest impact on society and changing our world I invite you to continue on this journey of creating meaningful connections at SC17.”

Simulation and Data Sciences in the Exascale, Neuromorphic and Quantum Computing Era

Thomas Lippert presented this talk at The Digital Future conference. “The Human Brain Project brings together neuroscientists, physicians, computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians and computer specialists from internationally respected scientific institutions in 23 countries. Their goal is to simulate the complete human brain within the next ten years using a supercomputer of the future. The simulation will be accurate in every detail, and will take in aspects such as genetics, the molecular level and the interaction of whole cell clusters.”
