Team with Prof. Schulthess (ORNL, Institute for Theoretical Physics and Swiss National Supercomputing Center) wins a Gordon Bell Prize for the second time in a row
A team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL’s) Markus Eisenbach and with Prof. Thomas Schulthess was named winner Thursday of the 2009 ACM Gordon Bell Prize, which honors the world’s highest-performing scientific computing applications.
This is the second time in a row that the research team of Prof. Thomas Schulthess wins the prestigious Gordon Bell Prize for supercomputing. The prize has been announced today, November 19 at the SC09 international supercomputing conference in Portland, Oregon.
The application developed by ORNL, Florida State University, and the Institute for Theoretical Physics and Swiss National Supercomputing Center achieved 1.84 thousand trillion calculations per second (1.84 petaflops) using an application that analyzes magnetic systems and, in particular, the effect of temperature on these systems.
