Jan. 15 — Two public health projects at Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center have made HPCwire’s list of “The Top Supercomputing-Led Discoveries of 2013.” The HERMES project is analyzing vaccine supply chains in lower-income countries to identify and repair under-appreciated choke points. The VecNet Cyberinfrastructure project has created a prototype computational system to support a global malaria eradication effort.
HPCwire, the major trade publication of the high-performance computing industry, named the two PSC projects among 30 supercomputing discoveries chosen from their news archives. According to the publication, these discoveries are “set to change the world in 2014 and beyond …” The full article can be read at http://www.hpcwire.com/2014/01/02/top-supercomputing-discoveries-2013/.
Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center ( http://www.psc.edu) is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. Established in 1986, PSC is supported by several federal agencies, private industry and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and is a major partner in the National Science Foundation XSEDE program.
