ALCC program awards ALCF computing time to 16 projects
DOE's ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge has selected a new set of projects for 2021-2022.
As part of Argonne National Laboratory's annual Coding for Science Camp, ALCF’s Ti Leggett, Joe Insley and Silvio Rizzi hosted camp instructor Kelly Sturner and the participating high school students for a virtual tour of the ALCF data center and visualization lab today. ALCF's Michael Papka, Jini Ramprakash, Bethany Lusch and Tommy Marrinan are also contributing to this week’s camp.
Congrats to ALCF's Antonio Villarreal and the seven other recipients of NERSC's annual HPC Achievement Awards! Antonio was recognized for "developing innovative workflows to enable using HPC at scale in support of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration."
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded $3.7 million to 13 high-performance computing projects that will use DOE supercomputers to accelerate the development of breakthrough manufacturing and energy technologies. As part of the new HPC4EI awards, Argonne National Laboratory will partner with 3M, Raytheon Technologies and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to apply advanced modeling, simulation, data analysis, and machine learning capabilities to projects that aim to improve manufacturing efficiency and explore new materials for energy applications.
In a new podcast from DOE’s Exascale Computing Project, researchers discuss their efforts to prepare WDMApp (Whole Device Model Application) codes for future exascale systems, including the ALCF’s upcoming Aurora supercomputer. The episode, which focuses on three codes (XGC, GENE, and GEM) used for fusion energy research, is part of a series that highlights progress and lessons learned in optimizing code to run efficiently on GPU-accelerated exascale systems.
In the latest episode of the Code Together podcast, ALCF's Katherine Riley joins Intel's Joe Curley to discuss scientific computing and inspiring the next generation of scientists and code developers.
At the 2021 ISC High Performance conference, ALCF Director of Technology Kalyan Kumaran took part in a roundtable discussion focused on how changes in the HPC landscape will impact science in the near future. Hosted by Scientific Computing World, the webcast covered the increasing diversity of HPC hardware and the benefits and challenges that emerge for scientists, how centers evaluate new hardware, and the impact of exascale development and resources being created to help scientists make use of next-generation HPC systems.
Today at 6pm (CT), tune in for "75 years at Argonne National Laboratory: Supercomputers and X-rays," a free online event hosted by the Chicago Council on Science & Technology. Katherine Riley, ALCF Director of Science, and Curt Preissner, Principal Mechanical Engineer at the Advanced Photon Source, will provide an in-depth look at Argonne's large-scale scientific user facilities.
Don't miss out on ALCF's contributions to the annual ISC High Performance conference and Intel's oneAPI Developer Summit at ISC. ALCF's Kristopher Rowe, Saumil Patel, Nevin Liber, Kevin Brown, Kevin Harms, and Prasanna Balaprakash are among the speakers participating in the upcoming events.
Interested in hearing about the software stack being developed for the U.S Department of Energy's upcoming exascale supercomputers? Tune in to the Exascale Computing Project's Twitter page (@exascaleproject) at 2pm (ET) on Monday, June 21, for a live Twitter chat with the team behind the Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S).
A new article from the Next Platform highlights the work being done by Petascale DTN project. Argonne’s William Allcock, Andrew Cherry, Salman Habib, and Adrian Pope are part of the collaborative effort with researchers from LBNL, NCSA and ORNL that succeeded in achieving routine data transfer rates of over 1 petabyte per week between four HPC facilities.
