12 Illinois faculty awarded prestigious Blue Waters ProfessorshipsTwelve University of Illinois faculty members from a range of fields have been selected as Blue Waters Professors, an honor that comes with substantial computing and data resources on the Blue Waters supercomputer at the university’s National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)..
22 Illinois projects receive time on Blue WatersThe University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has awarded access to the Blue Waters supercomputer—which is capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second and of working with quadrillions of bytes of data—to 22 campus research teams from a wide range of disciplines.The computing and data capabilities of Blue Waters, which is operated by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), will assist researchers in their work on understanding DNA, developing biofuels, simulating climate, and more..
3 Ways Big Data, Supercomputing Change Weather ForecastingSo while we're not able to control the weather, better forecasting will allow us to make more informed plans that can limit financial losses, provide new business opportunities, reduce government spending, and even save lives.Unfortunately, improving our ability to predict the weather is challenging, both scientifically and computationally. Supercomputing has played a major role in enabling predictive models since the 1950s and remains at the cornerstone of today's weather and climate modeling. Constantly improving computational capabilities have allowed scientists and forecasters to produce results faster than ever while also investigating increasingly complex phenomena and producing specialized forecast products. From model performance to system and data management, weather prediction presents unique high-performance computing challenges..
14 Illinois researchers selected for NCSA FellowshipsFourteen faculty members at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have been selected to receive one-year fellowships that will enable their research teams to pursue collaborative projects with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. NCSA's fellowship program aims to catalyze and develop long-term collaborations between the center and campus researchers, particularly in the center's six thematic areas of research: Bioinformatics and Health Sciences, Computing and Data Sciences, Culture and Society, Earth and Environment, Materials and Manufacturing, and Physics and Astronomy..
