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 impac...

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...

Cray Launches Hadoop into HPC Airspace

HPCwire

There has been little doubt that the convergence of traditional high performance computing with advanced analytics has been steadily underway, fed in part by a rush of new tools, frameworks and platforms targeting the big data deluge. And when one thinks about the old guard of supercomputing, Cray is one of the first vendors to come to mind, although they’ve been steadily ramping up efforts to mesh into the broader world of enterprise systems with their own slant on the big data phenomenon. First came the company’s Urika graph analytics appliance just a littl...

When Women Stopped Coding

NPR

Modern computer science is dominated by men. But it hasn't always been this way.

A lot of computing pioneers — the people who programmed the first digital computers — were women. And for decades, the number of women studying computer science was growing faster than the number of men. But in 1984, something changed. The percentage of women in computer science flattened, and then plunged, even as the share of women in other technical and professional fields kept rising.</...
