Tim Berners-Lee, Web Creator, Defends Net Neutrality

The New York Times

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, speaking at a technology conference in London on Wednesday, says harnessing the full potential of the Internet and Web technology in the future will require the codification of network neutrality into law. The battle over network neutrality is approaching a major inflection point with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission poised to issue a final decision on new net neutrality rules later this year, possibly allowing for Internet service providers to charge for improved access to bandwidth at the same time the European lawmake...

SDSC Granted $1.3 Million Award for ‘SeedMe.org’ Data Sharing Infrastructure

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego have received a three-year, $1.3 million award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a web-based resource that lets scientists seamlessly share and access preliminary results and transient data from research on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices. Called SeedMe – short for ‘Swiftly Encode, Explore and Disseminate My Experiments’ – the new award is from the NSF’s Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) program, part of the foundation’s Cyberinfras...

XSEDE Seeking Partner Institutions to Offer Course in Applications of Parallel Computing

XSEDE and the University of California, Berkeley are offering an online course on parallel computing for graduate students and advanced undergraduates and are seeking other university partners that are interested in offering the course for credit to their students. The course includes online video lectures, quizzes, and homework assignments with access to free accounts on the NSF supported XSEDE supercomputers. Last year the course included participants from 17 different institutions with students from a variety of backgrounds that successfully completed the course.  To read further,...

The Exascale Revolution

HPCwire

The post-petascale era is marked by systems with far greater parallelism and architectural complexity. Failing some game-changing innovation, crossing the next 1000x performance barrier will be more challenging than previous efforts. At the 2014 Argonne National Laboratory Training Program on Extreme Scale Computing (ATPESC), held in August, Professor Pete Beckman delivered a talk on “Exascale Architecture Trends” and their impact on the programming and executing of computational science and engineering appli...

Computer Engineering Degrees Pay Off Big Time

Network World

Students who graduate with engineering degrees in a variety of fields are rewarded with high-paying jobs and have strong earnings potential throughout their career, according to a Brookings Institution report. Computer engineering currently ranks as the fourth-highest earning degree, with majors earning an average of $2.02 million throughout their career, while the top 10 percent of computer engineering majors earn more than $3.55 million. The report provides detailed data related to how much money graduates make just out of college, throughout different p...

HPC UNIVERSITY BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE – Hybrid Parallel Pharmacology

SUMMARY:

This problem challenges you to create a hybrid MPI+OpenMP model of concentration of a drug in the bloodstream.

 

QUESTION:

The model in this problem is based on Shodor's Pharmacology system dynamics model (http://shodor.org/talks/ncsi/vensim/Pharma.html). You may find it helpful to reference that model as you solve the problem.

 

This challenge problem is also similar to four previous "Hybrid Parallel" challenge problems, and you may find it helpful t...

Sunday's Computational News Grab Bag: New Web Privacy System Could Revolutionize the Safety of Surfing

University College London

Researchers at University College London (UCL), Google, Stanford University, Chalmers, and Mozilla Research say they have developed an open source system that protects Internet users' privacy while increasing the flexibility for Web developers to create applications that combine data from different websites, thereby improving the safety of surfing the Web. The system, called Confinement with Origin Web Labels (COWL), works with Mozilla's Firefox and the open source version of Google's Chrome Web browsers and prevents malicious code in a website...

SC14 News: Women in HPC Workshop at Supercomputing 2014

Friday, November 21, 2014

There are now just four weeks until the beginning of SC14 and just three weeks to register to attend the first Women in HPC workshop at Supercomputing in New Orleans. We have an exciting program bringing together women working with HPC to discuss their work and also to help us create a roadmap to gender equality in HPC. There will be talks and posters from early career women on a variety of areas in HPC from the road to exascale in software and hardware, cosmology, ocean modeling, wind turbines and much more! We are also delighted to hav...

UC Berkeley Researchers: Earth’s Magnetic Field Could Flip Within a Human Lifetime

It’s not as bizarre as it sounds. Earth’s magnetic field has flipped – though not overnight – many times throughout the planet’s history. Its dipole magnetic field, like that of a bar magnet, remains about the same intensity for thousands to millions of years, but for incompletely known reasons it occasionally weakens and, presumably over a few thousand years, reverses direction. Left to right, Biaggio Giaccio, Gianluca Sotilli, Courtney Sprain and Sebastien Nomade sitting next to an outcrop in the Sulmona basin of the Apennine Mountains that contains the Matuyama-Brunhes magnet...

TACC Participates in IEEE Cluster14 in Madrid\

Executive Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, Dan Stanzione, delivered a keynote address last month at IEEE Cluster 2014 in Madrid. The keynote highlighted one of TACC’s upcoming new systems to be deployed in January 2015 titled: Wrangler: A New Generation of Data Intensive Cluster Computing. Clusters have become the workhorse for computational science and engineering research, powering innovation and discovery that advance science and society. They are the base for building today's rapidly evolving cloud and HPC infrastructu...
