OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Feb. 6 — Several of Oak Ridge National Laboratory's most promising applied R&D capabilities will be in the spotlight March 5-6 as dozens of entrepreneurs, investors and scientists gather at the lab's third annual "Bridging the Gap" conference.
"This is a great opportunity for the region's business community to receive capability briefings from some of the lab's most dynamic researchers and to explore commercialization and collaboration opportunities," said Tom Rogers, ORNL's director of Industrial Partnerships and Economic Development.
Presentations by ORNL researchers will highlight the breadth of the lab's research, including sessions on bioenergy, sustainable transportation, building technologies, additive manufacturing, carbon fiber, lightweight materials, data systems and analytics, modeling, simulation and cyber security. Lab Director Thom Mason will give the keynote address, titled "Innovation at ORNL."
Tours of ORNL's recently completed Carbon Fiber Technology Facility, Manufacturing Demonstration Facility and EVEREST visualization laboratory will offer conference attendees a first-hand glimpse of the lab's research. The complete agenda and registration info can be found at http://www.ornl.gov/adm/partnerships/events.shtml .
Several ORNL technologies were licensed as a result of last year's event, which attracted 135 attendees. Previous "Bridging the Gap" conferences have also helped forge relationships that resulted in successful research collaborations.
While in previous years the focus has been on presenting specific lab technologies, this year's initiative will emphasize broader areas of ORNL research. Rogers noted that this approach allows for more open-ended discussion around potential partnerships.
"Bridging the Gap represents the additional emphasis that the lab is putting on drawing the connection between its research and development and commercial applications," Rogers said. "If someone is interested in the lab, this event is the most efficient way to become informed about ORNL's many capabilities."
ORNL is managed by UT-Battelle for the Department of Energy's Office of Science.

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....

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.
