PRACE Invites Students to Participate in Summer of HPC 2015

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) invites students to participate in the summer programme Summer of HPC 2015. The programme enables students to go to 10 PRACE member centres around Europe, where they will work on various projects with the help of the most advanced supercomputer systems. Applications are open until 8 March 2015.Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC (high-performance computing) centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students. Up to 20 top applicants from all across Europe ...

Weekend Workshop Hones Researchers’ Computational Skills

A new skillset is in demand among scientists: As the size of datasets increases with enhanced data collection technologies, researchers must be proficient not only in their selected field of study, but also in the ability to use computers to analyze, interpret, and visualize increasingly larger datasets. This means that many researchers, who are usually untrained in computer sciences, must independently acquire these computational skills in order to thrive in their career fields. A workshop held on the University of Arizona campus last weekend, hosted by the

Facebook, LinkedIn Join to Help Women in Tech

Facebook and LinkedIn have launched a collaborative initiative to boost the shrinking numbers of women studying engineering and computer science in order to fill thousands of lucrative Silicon Valley jobs that are traditionally dominated by men. The initiative includes mentoring and support programs at colleges to get more women involved in studying technology in general, but also as future employees. "If everybody who creates a product looks the same, you know the results won't be nearly as interesting," says Anita Borg Institute CEO Telle Whitney. "We want for the sake of our future to ...

Faster Raspberry Pi Brings Low-Price Computing Power to Education

The Engineer (United Kingdom)

The latest version of Raspberry Pi is six times faster than its predecessor and delivers the same amount of power as a standard personal computer. The extremely low price point was the biggest challenge, says Raspberry Pi Foundation founder Eben Upton. The Foundation promotes credit card-sized Raspberry Pi computers as an affordable tool that children can use to learn programming. Priced at about $35, the Raspberry 2 has four times as many processor cores and twice as much memory as its predecessor, and can run the new Windows 10. Upton say...

UCSD’s Lab-in-a-Box Takes Aim at Doctors’ Computer Activity

They call it “the Lab-in-a-Box.” According to Nadir Weibel, a research scientist in the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department at the University of California, San Diego, inside the box are assorted sensors and software designed to monitor a doctor’s office, particularly during consultations with patients. The goal is to analyze the physician’s behavior and better understand the dynamics of the interactions of the doctor with the electronic medical records and the patients in front of them. The eventual goal is to provide useful input on how to run the medical practice ...

SDSC Participates in CalWater Extreme Precipitation Project

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the University of California, San Diego, is providing data management, visualization and modeling resources, and expertise to a two-month wintertime field campaign to study “atmospheric rivers” and particles of dust, smoke, sea spray, and organic materials called aerosols along the western U.S. coast to better understand variability in the region’s water supply, flood and drought hazards, infrastructure requirements, and optimal reservoir operations. The latest initiative, called the CalWater 2015 project, assembled a team of federal and...

HPC UNIVERSITY BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE SOLUTION – GNU gprof for Ideal Gas

Solution for the week of February 16, 2015:

To disable the pictures of the flasks, the line to comment out or remove is line 38 in simulation.c.

The -pg flag can be added to the CFLAGS line in the Makefile to enable compiling for gprof.

Compiling uses the same commands as usual:
"make" to create the object files and executable file
"make clean" to remove the object files and executable file

The command to generate a gmon.out is:
./ideal-gas

To run gprof with the gmon.out file, use the following command:
gprof ideal-gas gmon.out

...

SUNDAY SCIENCE ON THE EDGE - UC Irvine Chemists Find a Way to Unboil Eggs to Reduce the Cost of Cancer Treatments

UC Irvine and Australian chemists have figured out how to unboil egg whites – an innovation that could dramatically reduce costs for cancer treatments, food production and other segments of the $160 billion global biotechnology industry, according to findings published today in the journal ChemBioChem. “Yes, we have invented a way to unboil a hen egg,” said Gregory Weiss, UCI professor of chemistry and molecular biology & biochemistry. “In our paper, we describe a device for pulling apart tangled proteins and allowing them to refold. We start with egg whites boiled for 20 minu...
