ECP highlights paper co-written by ALCF's Christopher Knight

The Exascale Computing Project highlights a recent publication on “rendezvous methods" from Christopher Knight of Argonne National Laboratory and Steven Plimpton of Sandia National Laboratories. Check it out to learn how these algorithms work in the context of large-scale scientific modeling and simulation codes and how they can be help reduce performance bottlenecks and scale effectively to exascale machines.

ALCF-ITT team recognized with best paper award at CCGrid 2021

Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and Illinois Institute of Technology were recognized with a best paper award at this week's IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2021 symposium for their study "DLIO: A Data-Centric Benchmark for Scientific Deep Learning Applications." The team developed a new benchmark for deep learning applications to emulate their data access patterns, identify I/O bottlenecks, and evaluate performance optimizations at scale with a diverse set of science applications on the ALCF's Theta supercomputer. Congratulations to the authors Hariharan Devarajan, Huihuo Zheng, Anthony Kougkas, Xian-He Sun, and Venkatram Vishwanath!
