PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 16 -- HPCwire, the leading source for global news and information covering the ecosystem of high performance computing, revealed the winners of the2009 HPCwire's annual Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards at the 22nd annual Supercomputing Conference (SC09) in Portland, Oregon. Tomas Tabor, publisher of HPCwire, revealed the list of winners at the HPCwire booth during the opening gala on Monday night.
HPCwire has designated two categories of Awards: (1) Readers' Choice, where winners have been determined by a poll of HPCwire readers, and (2) Editors' Choice, where winners have been determined by votes of a panel of recognized HPC luminaries, and contributing editors from industry. These awards are widely recognized as prestigious recognition from the HPC community.
"This award, which represents a partnership between the HPCwire global readership and our publishing team, is a salute from the global HPC community," said Tomas Tabor, publisher of HPCwire. "It's our great pleasure to take time each year to offer recognition to the leaders and luminaries in this industry. An organization being selected as an award recipient means that they are at the top of mind of HPCwire readers, editors, and luminaries in the field. The response to our survey an online polling has been strong as ever. I'd like to offer a well-earned congratulations to all the recipients of our 2009 awards."

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
