NICS is contributing expertise and high-performance computing resources to a new program from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) aimed at promoting multidisciplinary collaborations between the scientific and industrial communities.
Papers and tutorial proposals for the XSEDE14 conference, July 13–18, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, are due March 15. Early registration for the conference and hotel booking availability begins on April 14.
Using the Kraken supercomputer, researchers are studying the energy transfers in rotating, layered fluid flows in the atmosphere to better understand weather and climate systems.
Kwai Wong of the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) has received two research leadership appointments in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Wong said his new roles will facilitate additional collaboration and enable JICS to bring computational sciences to an even broader range of students.
Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Europe, Canada, Japan, and the United States are invited to apply for the fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 1-6, 2014, in Budapest, Hungary. Interested students should apply by March 9.
An expansive set of courses in high-performance computing presented by leaders in the field is available for free online. This seminar series, which began in autumn of 2013, will resume in 2014 with content about programming for supercomputers and proceed to cover a vast array of topics during winter and spring.
The Computational Science for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CSURE) 10-week summer program equips participants with a synergistic set of knowledge and skills to begin using leading-edge computational methods. The application deadline for CSURE 2014 has been extended to March 14.
Sometimes preparing for a contest offers a victory all its own, one of newly acquired confidence and knowledge. That’s true for the team of students that will represent the University of Tennessee when it participates for the first time in the annual international Student Cluster Competition at the SC13 supercomputing conference in Denver, Nov. 17–22.
