Dec. 16 -- The IEEE TCSC Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing is awarded for significant and sustained contributions to the scalable computing community through the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC), coupled with an outstanding record of high quality and high impact research.
The award consists of a medal and an honorarium of $1,000. In the past, IEEE TCSC medal of excellence were awarded to Professor Jack Dongarra (University of Tennessee, USA) in 2008, and Professor Rajkumar Buyya (University of Melbourne, Australia) in 2009.
Nominations: A candidate may be nominated by colleagues/TCSC members or may nominate him/her-self. Nomination should be sent via email to the award coordinator(s) listed below. A nomination should include the following details:
1. Professional Employment Affiliations: List the nominee's current professional affiliations and titles.
2. Citation: Give a brief citation (thirty words or less) precisely stating the most salient reason(s) why the nominee is qualified for the award.
3. Technical Contributions: Describe the nominee's technical achievements as well as significance and impact.
4. TCSC Contribution: Describe the candidate's service and specific contributions to TCSC, its mission and its activities.
5. Endorsers: Each nomination must be supported by letter from three at least endorsers.
Please provide the names, affiliation, and addresses (email) of your designated endorsers for your nomination. The endorsers will be required to comment on the nominee's technical contributions as well as service to the TCSC community.
Award Selection Committee: The award selection committee will consist of leaders in the field, as well as members of the TCSC Executive Committee and the TCSC Advisory Board.

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.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
