Video: Stunning Simulation from Blue Brain Project at SC16

In this silent video from the Blue Brain Project at SC16, 865 segments from a rodent brain are simulated with isosurfaces generated from Allen Brain Atlas image stacks. For this INCITE project, researchers from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne will use the Mira supercomputer at Argonne to advance the understanding of these fundamental mechanisms of the brain’s neocortex.

INCITE Seeking Proposals to Advance Science with Leadership Computing

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.

Princeton Plasma Physics Lab Wins 80 Million Processor Hours on Titan Supercomputer

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.

INCITE Seeking Proposals for U.S. Leadership Computing

The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program is now accepting proposals for high-impact, computationally intensive research campaigns.

INCITE Program Powers Groundbreaking Research

“Using one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world — “Titan,” a Cray XK7 system housed at Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) — researchers across the country devoted more than 1.94 billion processor hours to 32 computational research projects last year alone. Projects ranging from nuclear fusion to astrophysics occupied some of Titan’s computing capability, allowing for groundbreaking research in multiple disciplines.”
