SDSC Gordon Supercomputer Used to Test Compounds for Uncoupler ActivitiesA

Antibiotic resistance has been called one of the world’s most pressing health problems, with some studies suggesting that, absent major improvements in drug discovery, by 2050 more individuals will die from drug-resistant bacterial infections than cancer. To help stem this nightmare scenario, a team of researchers – with the aid of the Gordon supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center based at UC San Diego – has identified a class of possible antibiotics with the potential to disable previously drug-resistant bacteria. In essence, these new agen...

Allocation Proposals for Time on Blue Waters Due in April

Application Deadline – April 4, 2016

At least 80 percent of the capacity of Blue Waters—about 150 million node-hours each year—is available to scientists and engineers across the country through the National Science Foundation’s Petascale Computing Resource Allocation program. In 2013, a new NSF-funded petascale computing system, Blue Waters, was deployed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The goal of this project and system is to open up ne...

The solution for our December 14, 2015 challenge will appear after the holiday break in early January. So as to refresh your memory after a three-week hiatus, we will repost the challenge on January 4 and follow with the solution on January 5, 2016.

We will attempt to post regularly over the holiday break but posts may turn out to be intermittent.

If you come across an interesting story, study or research article in the meantime, please be sure to let us know!

ORNL Receives ARPA-E Funding for Transformational Energy Technology

The Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory will participate in three research projects that have been awarded $10.2 million in funding from DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. The funding will be used to develop new alloys, membranes and batteries for energy applications. ORNL received the competitive awards from ARPA-E’s OPEN 2015 program, which serves as an open call to scientists and engineers for transformational technologies outside the scope of ARPA-E’s existing focused programs. Through both open and focused solicitations, ARPA-E funds technologies...

SDSC’s ‘Comet’ Supercomputer Blazing Trails via Science Gateways

Just six months after coming online, Comet, the new petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, is already blazing new paths of discovery, thanks in part to its role as a primary resource for an assortment of science gateways that provide scientists across many research domains with easy access to its computing power. Simply described, science gateways provide web browser access to applications and data used by specific research communities. Gateways make it possible to run the available applications on supercomputers su...

Taking Place on Thursday: XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenACC

December 3, 2015 – Varies Locations

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on December 3, 2015. OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran prog...

CSTA’s Faces of Computing Competition Guidelines

In honor of CSEdWeek, CSTA will be hosting its annual video competition. This year's theme will be "Computing for the Common Good." We are encouraging entries to show groups of students showcasing how computing is used to better the world. The video could promote their schools' computer science program and the ways it works to teach computing for good; it could demonstrate a potential or completed computer science project that exemplifies the theme; or it could highlight existing ways that computing is a force for good in any field. Another area to consider is volunteering in a way that i...
