Department of Energy to Showcase World-Leading Science at SC19

The DOE’s national laboratories will be showcased at SC19 next week in Denver, CO. “Computational scientists from DOE laboratories have been involved in the conference since it began in 1988 and this year’s event is no different. Experts from the 17 national laboratories will be sharing a booth featuring speakers, presentations, demonstrations, discussions, and simulations. DOE booth #925 will also feature a display of high performance computing artifacts from past, present and future systems. Lab experts will also contribute to the SC19 conference program by leading tutorials, presenting technical papers, speaking at workshops, leading birds-of-a-feather discussions, and sharing ideas in panel discussions.”

Deep Learning on Summit Supercomputer Powers Insights for Nuclear Waste Remediation

A research collaboration between LBNL, PNNL, Brown University, and NVIDIA has achieved exaflop (half-precision) performance on the Summit supercomputer with a deep learning application used to model subsurface flow in the study of nuclear waste remediation. Their achievement, which will be presented during the “Deep Learning on Supercomputers” workshop at SC19, demonstrates the promise of physics-informed generative adversarial networks (GANs) for analyzing complex, large-scale science problems.

SC19 to Host BoF Meeting on Americas HPC Collaboration

SC19 will host a BoF Meeting on Americas HPC Collaboration. This third BoF Americas HPC Collaboration seeks to showcase collaboration opportunities and experiences between different HPC Networks and Laboratories from countries of the American continent. “The goal of this BoF is to show the current state of the art in continental collaboration in HPC, latest developments of regional collaborative networks and, to update the roadmap for the next two years for the Americas HPC partnerships.”

Podcast: Full Rundown of SC19 Events in Denver

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team reviews the full list of events leading up to SC19 in Denver. “There’s a lot that happens before the exhibit floor opens on Monday night. Our old pal Rich Brueckner from insideHPC joins us to give us the full rundown. We even have a few parties to tell you about.”

TMGcore Teams with Dell EMC on Immersion Cooled Datacenter Platform

Today datacenter solution provider TMGcore announced it has developed a first-of-its-kind data center platform that utilizes immersion cooling and is ready to house ​Dell EMC​ PowerEdge C4140 servers. “Traditionally, data center platforms run in air-cooled environments​ that require a significant amount of power and air conditioning within the facility,” said John-David Enright, CEO of TMGcore. “However, companies are looking to be more environmentally friendly and reduce the amount of power consumption within their data center operations. ​We have developed a line of data center platforms that feature an immersion environment for the servers, and we are proud to introduce the products to the market with one customized for Dell Technologies servers.”

Arm HPC User Group Returns to Denver Nov. 18

The Arm HPC team invites you to our 5th Annual Arm HPC User Group (AHUG) session at SC19. The all-day event takes place on Monday, Nov. 18 at the Curtis Hotel in Denver. “We have a full day agenda of strategic partners and end-users from all regions of the world sharing their experiences, best practices, plans, ecosystem advances, and results on Arm-based platforms for HPC applications. The goal of this event is, as always, to candidly share and network among the growing number of users and sites that are deploying Arm for HPC and to highlight the work of the many leaders in this area.”

GCS Student Team preps for SC19 Student Cluster Competition

The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) will once again sponsor some of Germany’s brightest collegiate minds at the SC19 Student Cluster Competition. Team “deFAUlt” is one of four European teams entering the student competition. In total, 16 teams qualified to participate in this year’s student challenge, with six other teams representing hosting country USA, five teams coming from China and one Singaporean team rounding out the group of competitors.

Parker Hannifin to Showcase Liquid Cooling Solutions at SC19

Parker Hannifin will showcase their latest quick connect couplings for liquid cooling at SC19 in Denver. “Recognized as the largest manufacturer of quick couplings in the world, Parker couplings incorporate non-spill valving, meaning no spills during connection and disconnection. At the core is a flat-sealing design that prevents any type of fluid loss against sensitive electronics and all electrical connections. This ensures the highest level of compatibility with the broadest range of liquids and the application environment.”

Hyperion Research to host HPC Market Briefing Breakfast at SC19

Hyperion Research will host their HPC Market Briefing Breakfast at SC19. The event takes place Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 7:00-9:00 AM Denver time at the Brown Palace Hotel near the convention center. “You are cordially invited to attend this popular session, but we encourage you to register soon because space is limited and in past years, we haven’t been able to accommodate everyone wanting to attend.”

Agenda Posted: Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting at SC19
