  • Sixth Annual Workshop on HPC User Support Tools (HUST 19) to Be Held at SC19

    August 6, 2019 — Supercomputing centers exist to drive scientific discovery by supporting researchers in computational science fields. To make users more productive in the complex HPC environment, HPC centers employ user support teams. These teams serve many roles, from setting up accounts, to consulting on math libraries and code optimization, to managing HPC software…

  • Designing the SKA Supercomputer Platform

    When the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) is deployed in the next decade, alongside it will be a supercomputer tasked to process the deluge of astronomical data that the instrument will collect from the skies. And even though the SKA will be the world’s most powerful radio telescope, it won’t quite need the world’s most powerful…
