Oct. 11 — The MEGWARE HPC User Meeting is a symposium for high performance computing. Organised by the German supercomputing manufacturer, MEGWARE, it will take place for the sixth time in the spring of 2013. The event is exclusively addressed to decision makers from research, universities and industry. The 6th MEGWARE HPC User Meeting in 2013 will be carried out with the motto:
"Green" Ways in Supercomputing
Date: Thursday, 25. April 2013
Location: MEGWARE Headquarters in Chemnitz / Germany
An interesting series of lectures on current supercomputing issues from the economic, research and industrial sector awaits our guests again. Technological partners report on the newest developments and current trends and HPC users report on their experiences and current tasks, which need to be mastered. The objective is to enable an exchange of experiences, to establish best practices and to discuss new challenges concerning high performance computing.
Call for Papers
You are cordially invited to submit proposals for presentations. Topics of interest for the meeting include, but are not limited to:
- Power-aware software and hardware

Thank you and see you in Chemnitz!
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....
