Supercomputers allow researchers to discover previously unknown materials and to predict their properties based on theory. There is currently a great deal of interest in materials that could be used for producing renewable energy and for energy storage. Researchers from the University of Basel are using the Piz Daint supercomputer at CSCS to search for […]
You are cordially invited to a talk by William Tang from Princeton University: Scalable Scientific Software for Extreme Scale Applications with Fusion Energy Science as the Domain Application Example Time: Monday, November 30th, 11:15am Place: ETH Zurich, ML J 34.3 Abstract A major challenge for supercomputing today is to demonstrate how advances in HPC technology […]
The Swiss HPC community hpc-ch and CSCS invite you to visit the “Swiss House of HPC” at SC15 in Austing at booth 396, where you can meet Swiss HPC specialists and scientists, and get the latest news about HPC and science in Switzerland, together with some Swiss coffee and chocolate. Among the novelties, every hour you […]
Computer scientist Torsten Hoefler is the winner of this year’s Latsis Prize awarded by ETH Zurich. His Scalable Parallel Computing Laboratory is one of the few laboratories to combine theory and application in the field of high-performance computing. Although mentors warned him against uniting these two aspects, it is precisely by doing so that he […]
Prof. Nicola Marzari, EPF Losanna, scienza dei materiali: “Vedere un mondo in un grano di sabbia” Questa presentazione ha avuto luogo durante le giornata delle porte aperte del CSSC, 17 ottobre 2015. Ricercatori delle università svizzere hanno spiegato perché oggi i supercomputer ad alta potenza sono così importanti nella ricerca scientifica di punta.
