SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 25 – HPCwire, the #1 news and information portal covering the entire ecosystem of High Performance Computing (HPC) announced today that it has published the ‘HPCwire People to Watch 2013’ list. The annual list is comprised of an elite group of the best and brightest minds in HPC whose research, dedication and hard work will be making a difference in the HPC community and in the world with their contributions.
The annual selections are made following an extensive review process by the HPCwire editorial and executive staff, recommendations from past recipients, and with guidance from industry analysts and luminaries across the HPC community.
"This is an annual special feature that we take very seriously. A significant amount of time and effort is dedicated towards a review and deliberation process by a panel of global experts before the final selections are made,” said Jeff Hyman, President and Group Publisher, HPCwire. "Taking into consideration the sheer magnitude of the contributions that these brilliant men and women are making through their work with HPC and emerging technologies, makes it harder each year to limit the list to only twelve individuals. It’s truly an honor for me to be able to announce today the men and women we believe will impact and influence the future of High Performance Computing in 2013 and beyond. Congratulations.”
The HPCwire People to Watch 2013 list pays tribute the following talented men and women from government, science, academia, business, and industry (in alphabetical order):
John (“Jay”) R. Boisseau, Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin

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.

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.
