Video: OpenACC Eases GPU Programming for HPC at SC17

In this video from SC17, Sunita Chandrasekaran from OpenACC.org and Stan Posey from NVIDIA describe how OpenACC eases GPU programming for HPC. “At SC17, OpenACC.org announced milestones highlighting OpenACC’s broad adoption in weather and climate models that simulate the Earth’s atmosphere, including one of this year’s Gordon Bell finalist. Additionally, the organization announced their hackathon momentum and the new  OpenACC 2.6 specification.”

Earth Core Simulation Awarded Gordon Bell Prize

Scientists at the University of Texas at Austin, IBM Research, New York University and the California Institute of Technology have been awarded the 2015 Gordon Bell Prize for realistically simulating the forces inside the Earth that drive plate tectonics. The team’s work could herald a major step toward better understanding of earthquakes and volcanic activity.

John Biddiscombe (CSCS) Demos In-situ Visualization at SC14

In this video from SC14, John Biddiscombe describes a ParaView demo of Bonsai running on Cray XC30 “Piz Daint” supercomputer at CSCS. “As a Gordon Bell Award Finalist, the galaxy simulation is rendered live in-situ on the GPUs of “Piz Daint” using the splotch renderer giving photorealistic images.”

Gordon Bell Finalist Uses Titan to Power Universe Sky Catalog

Researchers are using the Titan supercomputer to create a comprehensive sky catalog of the development of the universe. The project is a finalist for the 2013 Gordon Bell Prize.
