An LLNL-led team has developed a method for optimizing application performance on large-scale GPU systems, providing a useful tool for developers running on GPU-based massively parallel and distributed machines.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) announced the election of LLNL computational mathematician Carol Woodward as its president-elect and computational scientist Judy Hill as a council member for the organization.
A record number of attendees—more than 14,000—experts, researchers, vendors and enthusiasts in the field of HPC descended on the Mile High City for the 2023 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, colloquially known as SC23.
LLNL researchers collaborated with Washington University in St. Louis to devise a state-of-the-art, machine learning ML–based reconstruction tool for when high-quality computed tomography data is in low supply.
An LLNL-led effort that performed an unprecedented global climate model simulation on the world’s first exascale supercomputer has won the first-ever Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Gordon Bell Prize for Climate Modelling, ACM officials announced.
The debut of the NNSA Commodity Technology Systems-2 computing clusters Dane and Bengal on the Top500 List of the world’s most powerful supercomputers brings the total of LLNL-sited systems on the list to 11, the most of any supercomputing center in the world.
Data researchers, developers, data managers, and program managers from national laboratories visited LLNL to discuss the latest in data management, sharing, and accessibility at the 2023 DOE Data Days (D3) workshop.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s largest technical professional organization, has elevated LLNL staff member Bhavya Kailkhura to the grade of senior member within the organization.
Lawrence Livermore is celebrating nearly a decade of bringing the Girls Who Code program to local middle and high schools. Since standing up the effort in 2016, more than 900 students have participated in the clubs, and the offerings continue to expand.
LLNL welcomed more than 145 students from the Bay Area to ‘STEM Day at the Lab’ on October 6. STEM Day is a biannual daylong interactive event focused on STEM activities for students (grades 5-8) from underserved or disadvantaged communities.
In recent years, the Lab has boosted its recruiting profile even further by offering the prestigious Sidney Fernbach Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Computing Sciences. The fellowship fosters creative partnerships between new and experienced scientists. In short, it ensures an annual cycle that refreshes advanced research in computer sciences at the Lab.
Over several years, teams have prepared the infrastructure for El Capitan, designing and building the computing facility’s upgrades for power and cooling, installing storage and compute components and connecting everything together. Once all the pieces are in place, the life of El Cap as world-class supercomputer begins.
For Lab employees Mariah Martinez and Paige Jones of LLNL Computing, their journeys to the Lab started with an internship. They have continued their work as full-time employees, paving the way for others to make a difference at the Lab.
A team from LLNL and seven other DOE labs is a finalist for the new ACM Gordon Bell Prize for Climate Modeling for running an unprecedented high-resolution global atmosphere model on the world’s first exascale supercomputer.
