The International Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for Supercomputers provides a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and discuss research questions that are relevant to upcoming supercomputers.
In this paper we describe our experiences in running simulations of the explosion phase of Type Ia supernovae on the largest available platforms. The simulations use FLASH, a modular, adaptive mesh, parallel simulation code with a wide user base. The simulations use multiple physics components: hydrodynamics, gravity, a sub-grid flame model, a three-stage burning model, and a degenerate equation of state.
The 2013 International Supercomputing Conference Research Paper and Tutorials Committees are now accepting abstracts and tutorial proposals for ISC’13 in Europe. The ISC’13 Call for Papers is supported by the IEEE Germany Section.
This conference will bring together all of the stakeholders involved in solving the software challenges of the exascale – from application developers, through numerical library experts, programming model developers and integrators, to tools designers.
Nvidia today formally introduced its K20 top of the line family of GPUs. Tesla K20 series would consist of K20X and marginally slower K20.
Cray Inc. today announced the launch of the Company’s next generation high-end supercomputing systems — the Cray XC30 supercomputer. Previously code-named “Cascade,” the Cray XC30 supercomputer is the Company’s most-advanced high performance computing system ever built.
This tutorial will provide a comprehensive overview on the optimization techniques to port, analyze, and accelerate applications on scalable heterogeneous computing systems using MPI and OpenCL, CUDA, and directive-based compilers using OpenACC
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory launched a new era of scientific supercomputing today with Titan, a system capable of churning through more than 20,000 trillion calculations each second-or 20 petaflop
After four years in Hamburg, ISC will move to the historic city of Leipzig in 2013. Leipzig has hosted trade fairs since 1165 and has long been a center for culture, learning and research.
