SC23 Prep: HPC Experts on Sessions to See and Trends to Watch in Denver

Getting the most out of SC23 calls for good preparation, so as an assist we spoke with four industry experts – Sunita Chandrasekaran of the University of Delaware and the Exascale Computing Project, Earl Joseph of Hyperion Research, Lois Curfman McInnes of Argonne National Laboratory and Addison Snell of Intersect360 Research….

Aurora Exascale Install Update: Cautious Optimism

The twice-annual TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers is not universally loved, arguments persist whether the LINPACK benchmark is an optimal way to assess HPC system performance. But few would argue it serves a valuable purpose: for those installing leadership-class supercomputers, the TOP500 poses a challenge and a looming deadline that “concentrates the mind wonderfully.”

@HPCpodcast: Paul Messina and the Journey to Exascale

From the early days of supercomputing through the success of exascale supercomputing, few HPC luminaries have played as important and integral leadership role in HPC as Dr. Paul Messina. So as we observe Exascale Day today, we are delighted to discuss the exascale journey with someone instrumental to the 10 orders of magnitude of improvement in ….
