April 19 -- PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, has awarded a prize for an outstanding scientific paper submitted to ISC'10 by a European student or young scientist on petascaling. The PRACE Award will be presented for a third time at the ISC'10 in Hamburg, Germany.
The PRACE Award 2010 winners are Klaus Iglberger, M. Sc. and Prof. Ulrich Rüde from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Their paper "Massively Parallel Granular Flow Simulations with Non-Spherical Particles" was declared as the winning paper among the excellent submissions.
The PRACE Award drew a submission of 21 papers. The winner was selected by the ISC Award Committee, led by Prof. Michael Resch, director of HLRS.
"The paper proposed by Iglberger and Rüde addresses successfully the issue of simulating flows of granular materials in a realistic way, that is with particles of different shapes moving in a complex environment. It introduces a new algorithm for this purpose that shows an excellent scalability on a very high number of cores, making possible very large simulations that will be useful in important applications like the design of silos," says the leader of PRACE work package "Petaflop/s Systems for 2009/2010" François Robin (GENCI), member of the ISC Award Committee.
"Among the very good papers submitted for the PRACE Award 2010, this paper was the best both addressing a complex physical problem and implementation of a highly scalable method for solving it," Robin continues.
The prize will be presented at the opening session of ISC'10 on Monday, May 31, in Hamburg, Germany. The much-anticipated TOP500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world will be released at the same session.
The authors of the PRACE Award winning paper have the opportunity to give a keynote talk on their work at the ISC'10 Scientific Sessions on Monday, May 31, 2010. The winners will receive a PRACE sponsorship for the participation in a training event or a conference relevant to petascale computing.
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.
