Study finds the nation's most powerful, open-science government-supported supercomputing program has positive impact on state and local economies.
Highlights from an investigation and evaluation of the scientific results from the NCSA Blue Waters supercomputer system.
NCSA releases annual report highlighting scientific exploration and breakthroughs enabled by the Blue Waters ProjectMay 02, 2017
The report highlights a year of scientific exploration and breakthroughs enabled by the project's leadership-class supercomputer and its associated support, training, and education efforts.
Interns will learn to apply high-performance computing to problems in science, mathematics, and engineering through the year-long program. Their experience will begin in late May with a two-week Petascale Institute at NCSA.
The report shows how different communities and fields of science have made effective use of the system since full service began in 2013, providing insight to the supercomputing community on the benefits of some of the hardware decisions the Blue Waters project made.
These allocations range from 25,000 to 600,000 node-hours of compute time over a time span of either six months or one year. The research pursuits of these teams are incredibly diverse, ranging anywhere from physics to political science.
More than 3 million node-hours yearly are allocated exclusively to projects from our campus, so apply by March 15 to use this extraordinary resource.
Joaquin Vieira, an assistant professor of astronomy at the University of Illinois, received the award in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to his field.
ExxonMobil has achieved a major breakthrough with proprietary software using more than four times the previous number of processors used on complex oil and gas reservoir simulation models to improve exploration and production results.
The series starts Wednesday, March 1.
Paper describes 'porting' and running of a discovery-science-capable code from the plasma physics domain onto Sunway TaihuLight's 'home-grown' architecture.
