The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility is hosting a virtual event for new and potential users interested in learning how to work with the world’s fastest supercomputer. It is scheduled to run from August 23-25.
Studying cosmic strings is beneficial, for example, for predicting future cosmic events. This requires high-resolution simulations. One of the biggest problems with these simulations is their resolution and accuracy. But a team of Portuguese researchers from the University of Porto has set out to find the solution. The computational resources have already allowed them to create the largest cosmic strings simulations to date.
The session of the National Network for Advanced Computing took place in the early afternoon of the last day of the portuguese Science summit. The latest updates of RNCA and some future projects were presented, such as the preparation of the MOOC about Supercomputing and the operationalization of the Deucalion supercomputer.
Quantum technology will be integrated into supercomputers that are located in several European countries. The agreements between the hosting entities and EuroHPC JU were signed at the end of June in Luxembourg.
The DGX GH200 system is being developed for release later this year. Google, Meta and Microsoft will be the first to experience the capabilities of this supercomputer whose performance is expected to reach 1 exaflop.
The Top500 list has just published its latest update and features two supercomputers funded by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking in the top places. LUMI continues to secure the third position and LEONARDO stays at the entrance of the podium.
FF4EuroHPC organizes webinars that seek to show the results of integrating high performance computing (HPC) technologies in organizations from different industrial sectors. The next session takes place on May 24th. Previous registration is required.
FCT, in partnership with Google, opens applications for the second edition on June 1st. The call intends to support research and development projects in the areas of natural language processing and ethics in artificial intelligence (among others).
Submissions will be accepted until June 5 for the following areas: Advanced Computing, Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, Space-Earth Interactions or Medical Physics. An online information session is planned for the morning of May 18.
Foram aprovados 31 projetos de computação avançada no acesso A2 do concurso da RNCA. Mas ainda há tempo para apresentar candidaturas em duas tipologias (A0 e A1). Este último lote de acesso fecha a 31 de maio.
