Candace Culhane, a program/project director in Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Directorate for Simulation and Computation, has been selected as the general chair for the 2022 SC Conference (SC22).Read more
British Petroleum researchers invited ORNL data scientists to give the company’s high-performance computing team a tutorial of the laboratory’s ADIOS I/O middleware. ADIOS has helped researchers achieve scientific breakthroughs by providing a simple, flexible way to describe data in their code that may need to be written, read, or processed outside of the running simulation. ORNL researchers Scott Klasky and Norbert Podhorszki demonstrated how it could help the BP team accelerate their science by helping tackle their large, unique seismic datasets.Read more
In this Q&A, Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Dan Jacobson talks about his team’s work on a genomic selection algorithm, his vision for the future of environmental genomics, and the space where simulation meets AI.
A team at Georgia Tech created a new turbulence algorithm optimized for the Summit supercomputer. It reached a performance of less than 15 seconds of wall-clock time per time step for more than 6 trillion grid points—a new world record surpassing the prior state of the art in the field for the size of the problem.Read more
A team used the Summit supercomputer to simulate a 10,000-atom magnesium dislocation system at 46 petaflops, a feat that earned the team an ACM Gordon Bell Prize finalist nomination and could allow scientists to understand which alloying materials to add to improve magnesium alloys.Read more
A team simulated a 10,000-atom 2D transistor slice on the Summit supercomputer and mapped where heat is produced in a single transistor. Using a new data-centric version of the OMEN nanodevice simulator, the team sustained the code at 85.45 petaflops and earned a Gordon Bell Prize finalist nomination.Read more
