June 12 -- PRACE, Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, awards a prize for an outstanding scientific paper submitted to ISC'08 by a European student or young scientist on petascaling. In addition, PRACE is presented in the conference programme, hosts a Birds-of-a-Feather session, and has an information booth in the exhibition.
The winner is selected by the ISC'08 Award Committee, headed by Michael Resch, High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart. Achim Bachem, Chairman of the Board Forschungszentrum Jülich and PRACE coordinator presents the PRACE Award at the ISC'08 opening ceremony in Dresden on Wednesday, 18 June. The winning student or young scientist will receive a sponsorship for the participation in a conference relevant to petascale computing.
This is the first time the prize is awarded. The PRACE Award will be continued in the years to come to encourage young European scientists to work on innovative solutions for petascale computing.
PRACE hosts a Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session at ISC'08 on June 18 at 5:15 p.m. The session is led by Kimmo Koski, the Managing Director of CSC, the Finnish IT Center for Science. This BoF discusses the current developments in building the High Performance Computing Ecosystem in Europe. The major European grid projects, such as DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications) and EGEE (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE), and the planned sustainable infrastructures, such as PRACE and EGI (European Grid Initiative), provide the building blocks for a pan-European collaboration. Policy work through e-IRG (e-Infrastructure Reflection Group) supports this development.
The PRACE coordinator, Prof. Dr. Achim Bachem, Forschungszentrum Jülich, presents the EU project in detail on June 19 at 9:00 a.m. and members of the PRACE project team are present during the exhibition (information stand number F05+F06) for further information.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) prepares the creation of a persistent pan-European HPC service, consisting of several tier-0 centres providing European researchers with access to capability computers and forming the top level of the European HPC ecosystem. PRACE is a project funded in part by the EU's 7th Framework Programme. The PRACE project receives funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° RI-211528. www.prace-project.eu.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
