Seeking Nominations for the James Corones Award Honoring Longtime Advocates for Science

Nominations are open for a new prize honoring a longtime advocate for science, education and research. “The James Corones Award in Leadership, Community Building and Communication will recognize mid-career scientists and engineers who are making an impact in their fields and on research in general. The recipient will be someone who encourages and mentors young people to engage with the science community, to communicate their work effectively and to make a difference in their scientific discipline. It’s a fitting tribute to Corones, who led a distinguished career as a researcher, administrator and, perhaps most importantly, founder of the Krell Institute, the award’s sponsor.”

Davidovits and Middleton Share 2018 Howes Scholar in Computational Science Award

A theoretical plasma physicist and a computational biologist are co-winners of the 2018 Frederick A. Howes Scholar in Computational Science Award. “The honorees are Seth Davidovits, now a Department of Energy (DOE) Fusion Energy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, and Sarah Middleton, now with pharmaceutical maker GlaxoSmithKline.”

With Exascale Looming, this is an Exciting Time for Computational Science

In this video from the 2017 CGSF Review Meeting, Barbara Helland from the Department of Energy presents: With Exascale Looming, this is an Exciting Time for Computational Science. “Helland was also a presenter this week at the ASCR Advisory Committee Meeting, where she disclosed that the Aurora 21 Supercomputer coming to Argonne in 2021 will indeed be an exascale machine.”

20 Future HPC Leaders Receive DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

Today the Krell Institute announced that new class of 20 future HPC leaders enrolled at U.S. universities this fall with support from the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF). “Established in 1991, the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.”

Dr. Robert Voigt on Educating Computational Scientists

In this video from KAUST Live, Dr. Robert Voigt discusses his recent keynote at the HPC Saudi Conference on the topic of Educating Computational Scientists. “This talk will provide a historical perspective on the challenges of educating computational scientists based on my personal involvement over a number of years. Three decidedly different activities will be drawn on to indicate how one can successfully approach the challenge.”

Video: JuMP – A Modeling Language for Mathematical Optimization

Miles Lubin from presented this talk at the CSGF Annual Program Review. “JuMP is an open-source software package in Julia for modeling optimization problems. In less than three years since its release, JuMP has received more than 50 citations and has been used in at least 10 universities for teaching. We tell the story of how JuMP was developed, explain the role of the DOE CSGF and high-performance computing, and discuss ongoing extensions to JuMP developed in collaboration with DOE labs.”
