More and more Swiss researchers are investigating how to use GPU to speed up their simulations. Because of the increasing relevance of GPU, CSCS organized last September a course on “GPU Programming with CUDA Fortran and the PGI Accelerator Programming Model”. The 20 available places have been quickly been booked up. CSCS plans to repeat […]
Call For Papers: Tools for Program Development and Analysis in Computational Science Workshop at ICCS 2011, Tsukuba, Japan, June 1-3, 2011 Submission Deadline: January 8, 2011 http://www.lrz.de/iccs2011/ This very successful workshop is a continuation from previous years, and has been organized since the first ICCS conference 10 years ago.
In Summer 2010 CSCS organized a two days introduction course to Rosa and the Cray environment. The videos of the different presentations are now available online on the multimedia portal of CSCS and ETH Zurich. You are invited to have a look to the videos if you want an introduction to parallel computing in general […]
After upgrading to Phase C and making several improvements during the last months, September 2010 surpassed all Phoenix GRID Cluster records running around 200.000 jobs and computing more than 850.000 CPU hours (normalized to 1 CPU = 1000 SpecInt2000) – doubling the average numbers since 2009. This is really great news for the CHIPP community […]
On September 20th, the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) inaugured the new Institute of Computational Sciences (Istituto di scienze computazionali, ICS). The ICS provides a unique research environment, where strong competences in modeling, simulation and information science come together in an open and application oriented atmosphere. This “virtual laboratory” will conduct complex simulations with supercomputers […]
