2014 Blue Waters Symposium
NCSA is hosting its second annual Blue Waters Symposium for Petascale Science and Beyond May 12-15, 2014.
Blue Waters enables a UC Santa Cruz astrophysics team to simulate a key supernova phase at unprecedented resolution.
User advisory committee formed
The committee brings together a diverse group of Blue Waters users to provide guidance on the project's growth and development through an end-user perspective.
PRAC proposals due March 10
The National Science Foundation has issued a call for requests for allocations on the Blue Waters system.
Internship applications due March 21
Undergraduate students can participate in a year-long science or engineering internship.
Finite element code hits record scale
The explicit finite element code LS-DYNA was recently scaled to a record 15,000 cores on Blue Waters.
Really big problems
By scaling a new coarse-grained molecular dynamics code on Blue Waters, University of Chicago researchers can tackle problems of unprecedented size.
Extreme Scaling submissions due May 1
Blue Waters & XSEDE will host the 8th Extreme Scaling Workshop Aug. 14-15 at the University of Colorado, Boulder; the theme is “The Intersection of Big Data and Large-Scale Computing.”
Call for education allocations
Blue Waters is available for educational uses, including courses, workshops, and institutes. Applications are now being accepted!
