Blue Waters enables a UC Santa Cruz astrophysics team to simulate a key supernova phase at unprecedented resolution.
18 teams receive Blue Waters allocations
Teams from Illinois and the Great Lakes Consortium have been awarded Blue Waters resources.
2014 Blue Waters Symposium
NCSA is hosting its second annual Blue Waters Symposium for Petascale Science and Beyond May 12-15, 2014.
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.
Biomolecular force fields
A University of Utah research group is using the massive scale of Blue Waters to rapidly and rigorously evaluate the force fields used in molecular dynamics simulations.
Call for education allocations
Blue Waters is available for educational uses, including courses, workshops, and institutes. Applications are now being accepted!
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.
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.”
Partners sought for GPU course
The Blue Waters project will offer an online graduate-level course on many-core computing in fall 2014 and is seeking university partners who are interested in offering the course for credit to their students.
NCSA hosting HPC summer workshops
This summer NCSA will host summer workshops on data-intensive computing and harnessing GPUs.
About Blue Waters
The Blue Waters project provides systems and support for petascale science and engineering. The Blue Waters supercomputer - one of the most powerful systems in the world - achieves sustained performance of 1 petaflop on a range of science and engineering codes and offers more than 25PB of usable storage.
