A few weeks ago CSCS had an open day. One of our purposes was to explain to the visitors how scientists use the supercomputers to do their work. With that in mind, Maria Grazia created a short cartoon entitled “How do computational researchers work: a typical day”. “I observe the world around me displaying all […]
The Swiss Italian Radio (RSI) recently broadcast an item on the new CSCS building and the scientific projects running here in their programme “Scintille”. They interviewed Michele De Lorenzi, associate director at CSCS, and two professors from ETH Zurich, Günther Dissertori (particle physics) and Marcella Carollo (astrophysics). Listen to the broadcast »

At the 25 years SPEEDUP anniversary workshop, Thomas Schulthess, director of the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre – CSCS, presented the Swiss HPC strategy towards the exascale era. Through several application case studies he showed how the increasing diversity in architectural designs is influencing implementations and algorithmic choices – and thus driving application acceleration.
Helmar Burkhart presented a review of 25 years of SPEEDUP at the 41st SPEEDUP Workshop. He discussed the beginning of supercomputing in Switzerland with the installation of a first Cray 1S at EPF Lausanne in February 1986 – enabled by Professor Hochstrasser – followed by a Cray X-MP at ETH Zurich and a Cray 2 at […]
