ALCF’s new Polaris testbed supercomputer to help pave the way to exascale
The new system will help accelerate efforts to prepare applications and workloads for Aurora.
Next week at the 77th HPC User Forum, ALCF's Ti Leggett will provide an overview of Argonne's new Polaris system. The event will also feature talks related to Aurora and early exascale hardware.
Tune in to the upcoming SYCL Summer Sessions (September 6-9, 2021) to learn how to write better code using SYCL. ALCF's Thomas Applencourt will kick the series off on September 6 with a talk on using contexts for memory isolation.
Better Scientific Software (BSSw) is now accepting applications for its 2022 BSSw Fellowship Program, which gives recognition and funding to leaders and advocates of high-quality scientific software. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021
Congrats to the high school students who participated in this year's DuPage ACT-SO STEM Olympics! With help from Argonne National Laboratory mentors, including several ALCF staff members, five of the students earned gold medals at the regional event and went on to compete at the national Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics.
Exascale and then what? On Tuesday, August 10, 2021, Argonne National Laboratory's Rick Stevens will discuss the next decade for HPC and AI during a keynote talk at the 50th International Conference on Parallel Processing. Registration is free
The 2021 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC) is now underway! ALCF’s Kalyan Kumaran kicked off today’s track on hardware architecture, which will give participants an overview of DOE’s upcoming exascale systems as well as emerging AI and quantum computing technologies. Now in its 9th year, ATPESC continues to play a key role in growing the community of researchers who can use supercomputers to advance science. The HPC training program has hosted more than 500 participants since it began in 2013.
As part of SC21's Student Cluster Competition, ALCF's Colleen Bertoni and Ye Luo provided an overview of Quantum Espresso, a suite of codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale.
As part of Argonne National Laboratory's annual Coding for Science Camp, ALCF’s Ti Leggett, Joe Insley and Silvio Rizzi hosted camp instructor Kelly Sturner and the participating high school students for a virtual tour of the ALCF data center and visualization lab today. ALCF's Michael Papka, Jini Ramprakash, Bethany Lusch and Tommy Marrinan are also contributing to this week’s camp.
Congrats to ALCF's Antonio Villarreal and the seven other recipients of NERSC's annual HPC Achievement Awards! Antonio was recognized for "developing innovative workflows to enable using HPC at scale in support of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration."
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded $3.7 million to 13 high-performance computing projects that will use DOE supercomputers to accelerate the development of breakthrough manufacturing and energy technologies. As part of the new HPC4EI awards, Argonne National Laboratory will partner with 3M, Raytheon Technologies and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to apply advanced modeling, simulation, data analysis, and machine learning capabilities to projects that aim to improve manufacturing efficiency and explore new materials for energy applications.
