NERSC Selects Six Teams for Exascale Science Applications Program

Following a call for proposals issued last October, NERSC has selected six science application teams to participate in the NERSC Exascale Science Applications Program for Data (NESAP for Data) program. “We’re very excited to welcome these new data-intensive science application teams to NESAP,” said Rollin Thomas, a big data architect in NERSC’s Data Analytics and Services group who is coordinating NESAP for Data. “NESAP’s tools and expertise should help accelerate the transition of these data science codes to KNL. But I’m also looking forward to uncovering and understanding the new performance and scalability challenges that are sure to arise along the way.”

NERSC Dungeon Session Speeds Code for Cori Supercomputer

Six application development teams from NERSC gathered at Intel in early August for a marathon “dungeon session” designed to help tweak their codes for the next-generation Intel Xeon Phi Knight’s Landing manycore architecture and NERSC’s new Cori supercomputer. “We try to prepare ahead of time to bring the types of problems that can only be solved with the experts at Intel and Cray present—deep questions about the architecture and how applications use the Xeon Phi processor. It’s all geared toward optimizing the codes to run on the new manycore architecture and on Cori.”

NERSC Announces Exascale Science Application Program Projects

NERSC has accepted a selection of key DOE science projects into its NERSC Exascale Scientific Applications Program, a collaborative effort in which NERSC will partner with code teams to prepare for the NERSC-8 Cori manycore architecture. NESAP represents an important opportunity for researchers to prepare application codes for the new architecture and to help advance […]
