The internship pairs students with faculty mentors and a research project for them to tackle. Each student is given a stipend totaling $5,000, access to a two-week intensive high-performance computing workshop, and an education allocation on the Blue Waters system.
34 University of Illinois researcher teams awarded allocations on powerful Blue Waters supercomputerJun 11, 2018
The last-ever round of Illinois Allocations for computation time on NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputer have been awarded, totalling more than 5.5 million node-hours, valued at nearly $3.7 million.
Prior GPU experience is not required, as those selected will be paired with experienced mentors who will teach them how to leverage accelerated computing in their own applications or further optimize their codes.
Ten graduate students from across the country have been awarded computation time, financial support, and dedicated staff expertise to advance their computational and data-intensive Ph.D. research on one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world -- Blue Waters.
Nine research projects from researchers at member institutions of the Great Lake Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC) have been awarded over 4.3 million node-hours on NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputer.
The Blue Waters project at NCSA has allocated over 3.7 million node-hours of computing resources to 21 research teams from across the country to broaden the diversity of the Blue Waters user community.
The new technique can distinguish crops with 95 percent accuracy by just two or three months after planting and well before harvest.
NCSA researchers to present findings at American Physical Society.
EOH is an annual student-led event featuring two days of exhibits and competitions that showcase the talent and ingenuity of engineering students at the University of Illinois. It is the University's largest student-run event, attracting more than 20,000 visitors annually.
Gross's work is on peer refinement method of finite meshes. He's working with Dr. JaeHyuk Kwack, a research programmer in the Blue Waters Scientific and Applications Support Group, taking elements in the project and refining them to make higher accuracy for simulations.
Combining experimental and computational approaches, Rafael Bernardi and the late Klaus Schulten from the Beckman Institute teamed up with Lukas Milles and Hermann Gaub from the LMU Physics Department to decipher the mechanism responsible for staph adhesion.
