Virtual ALCF workshop provides guidance on using AI and supercomputing tools for science
ALCF continues its efforts to build a community of scientists who can employ AI and data-intensive analysis at a scale that requires DOE supercomputers.
Check out the 2020 ALCF Science Report to learn how the facility and its user community are advancing the forefront of high-performance computing for science. The report includes updates on facility's initiatives and a collection of highlights on notable results produced by ALCF users.
On Wednesday, March 17, 2021, Argonne National Laboratory's Nicola Ferrier will co-lead the 4th workshop in the Brain Connectivity series, co-hosted by the National Institutes of Health BRAIN Initiative and DOE's Office of Science. Argonne's Tom Uram and Ian Foster will also participate in the free virtual workshop focused on connectome generation and data pipelines.
Learn how employees across Argonne, including ALCF’s Carissa Holohan, are helping to build a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment that supports and promotes gender equality and diversity.
The SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE21) is now underway! Argonne researchers are contributing to more than 100 conference activities this week, including invited talks, tutorials, the Broader Engagement Program, and the career fair.
Congrats to the many Argonne researchers recently recognized with DOE Secretary of Energy’s Honor Awards. Among the recipients, ALCF's Mike Papka and Katherine Riley were part of the team that mobilized Argonne supercomputing resources to support and accelerate COVID-19 research.
Today, the Khronos Group announced the ratification and public release of the SYCL™ 2020 final specification—the open standard for single source C++ parallel programming. SYCL is a key programming framework for the ALCF's upcoming exascale system, Aurora. “Our users will benefit from features in the SYCL 2020 specification. New features, such as support for unified memory (USM) and reductions, are important capabilities for programming high-performance-computing hardware,” said Nevin Liber, ALCF computer scientist.
In a new podcast from DOE's Exascale Computing Project, Brian Homerding of the ALCF discusses the efforts to prepare an earthquake simulation code for Argonne' upcoming exascale system, Aurora. The episode is the first in a new series that will highlight achievements and lessons learned in optimizing code to run efficiently on GPUs.
