SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 28 – The HPC Advisory Council, a leading worldwide organization for high-performance computing research, development, outreach and education, today announced that Antonis Karalis has received the prestigious HPC Advisory Council University Award 2012 for advanced research in the subject area of music in high-performance computing. One of the HPC Advisory Council’s main activities is community and education outreach. The University Award program is an outgrowth of this, and is intended to enhance students’ computing knowledge-base.
“The council award program was designed to enrich world-wide university research activities by utilizing and maximizing the high-performance computing capabilities and the council’s expertise”
“With the goal to develop and create HPC clustering solutions that further enable the future of music production, Mr. Karalis’s submission ‘Music Production using HPC’ stood out amongst all of the submissions,” said Gilad Shainer, Chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “We congratulate Mr. Karalis and look forward to providing him the tools and cluster resources necessary to complete his research. We look forward to reviewing proposals for 2013, and working with the winners to highlight their research and further advances in HPC technology and education.”
Once a year, the HPC Advisory Council will select worthy proposals allowing winners to benefit from a range of the council’s resources and events, including the opportunity to present their final research results to a wider audience.
“The council award program was designed to enrich world-wide university research activities by utilizing and maximizing the high-performance computing capabilities and the council’s expertise,” said Cydney Stevens, HPC Advisory Council Research Steering Committee Director. “We congratulate Mr. Karalis and encourage others to submit their research proposals for the 2013 award.”
University Award Winners will be provided with the following:
Proposals for the HPC Advisory Council University Award Program 2013 are being accepted today.
About the HPC Advisory Council
The HPC Advisory Council’s mission is to bridge the gap between high-performance computing (HPC) use and its potential, bring the beneficial capabilities of HPC to new users for better research, education, innovation and product manufacturing, bring users the expertise needed to operate HPC systems, provide application designers with the tools needed to enable parallel computing, and to strengthen the qualification and integration of HPC system products.

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.
