PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced it has selected more than 60 professors from around the world to receive awards as part of its third annual HP Labs Innovation Research Program (IRP).
HP IRP creates opportunities for faculty and students at leading colleges, universities and research institutes to conduct breakthrough collaborative research with HP.
The 2010 HP IRP call for proposals attracted 375 submissions from 323 researchers in 202 universities across 36 countries. This year a total of 65 projects received funding, of which 40 are receiving funding for a second or third year.
Additionally, in collaboration with HP's Office of Global Social Innovation, three researchers were selected to receive philanthropic grants supporting their work in cloud computing services in education.
Cloud computing as a core theme
"The annual HP Labs Innovation Research Program is an ideal platform for HP to initiate highly innovative projects with leading researchers in universities worldwide. The collaborative effort between HP and these universities has delivered breakthroughs in areas such as cloud computing, optical computing and nano-materials -- fundamental enablers of the next generation of products and services for communities around the globe," said Rich Friedrich, director of strategy and innovation at HP.
"HP researchers have brought to our collaboration rigor in solution methods and a deep knowledge about practical system constraints. This partnership brings HP Labs' software prototypes to our university, enabling us to jointly advance our respective research -- we are actively collaborating to increase their capabilities to operate at the scales needed for future systems," said Dr. Karsten Schwan, Georgia Institute of Technology.

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.
