In the first of a four-part series, Jay Etchings, director of operations for research computing, and senior HPC architect at Arizona State University lays out the concept of the next-generation cyberinfrastructure, a set of integrated technology components working together to support the diverse needs of the research community across disciplines and across scale. Where does high-performance computing go from Read more…
Thanks to an NSF award worth $1.4 million, bioinformatics researchers at Washington State University and Clemson University and elsewhere will soon have the kind of infrastructure capable of supporting 21st century big data genomics workloads. As part of the Tripal Gateway project, the multi-university team will work to enhance the scope and capacity of their existing Read more…
Rich Knepper’s talk as part of the International Conference on Infrastructures and Cooperation in E-science and E-humanities, in Leipzig, Germany, tackles the subject of “Living cyberinfrastructures and their impact on scientific research.” Knepper, who is Manager of Campus Bridging and Research Infrastructure at Indiana University, says he started thinking about the idea for the presentation Read more…
UCSD rolls out a next-generation bypass network across its La Jolla, Calif., campus.
Edward Seidel, the former director of the NSF’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure, told attendees at TeraGrid ’11 that after more than four centuries of science being conducted at a painstakingly slow pace, today’s communications technologies and scientific advances are forcing a dramatic change — and acceleration — in all areas of science. At the heart of this change will be software.
XSEDE takes up NSF’s cyberinfrastructure mission with a broader mandate.
Fifty-one Campus Champions attended TeraGrid’s fifth annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., recently. Accounting for about 15 percent of attendees, the champions bring a wealth of experience to the program, including knowledge of TeraGrid systems and services, their local campus resources, and other cyberinfrastructures such as the Open Science Grid. This is our fifth and final in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.
Dr. Tim Killeen, representing the National Science Foundation, last week addressed the annual TeraGrid ’10 conference in Pittsburgh, Pa. His keynote emphasized the urgent need for sustainable cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences and across all domains of science. This is our third in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.
It wasn’t hard to spot the students who took part in the TeraGrid ’10 conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., last week. All you had to do was look for the yellow shirts. More than 100 students took part in the event — graduate students, undergrads, and high schoolers. This is our second in a series of articles covering the TeraGrid conference.
TeraGrid ’10, the fourth annual conference of the TeraGrid, took place last week in Pittsburgh, Pa. HPCwire will be running a series of articles highlighting the conference. The first in the series covers Gabrielle Allen’s keynote talk on Cactus, an open, collaborative software framework for numerical relativity.
