Back in December, I had the opportunity to help organize a workshop series on storage systems and I/O for extreme scale science, focusing on simulation based science. ASCR has posted the report on their program documents page. I’m heavily biased, … Continue reading
Bob Johnson in the Environmental Science division at ANL has organized a workshop on the convergence of HPC and Geospatial Analysis. The meeting has been a good opportunity to learn one another’s language and concerns, and to consider how current … Continue reading
The Lustre User Group organizers kindly invited me to participate on a panel with Al Geist, Lee Ward, and Terri Quinn regarding future HPC systems and the role of parallel file systems. Great discussion! Slides should be available here soon.
Applications being accepted for the 2014 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC)
For the second year, Argonne is organizing a two-week program on extreme scale computing. This year the program will be held on August 3-15, 2014 in the Chicago area. This is a unique program that brings together experts on tools … Continue reading
Hank Hoffmann and I are organizing the 3rd Annual Greater Chicago Area System Research Workshop (GCASR 2014) at the University of Chicago on May 19th, 2014. The workshop is a great place for researchers from all around the Chicago area, … Continue reading
Today I had the opportunity to speak at an Office of Science and Technology Policy event on “Data to Knowledge to Action”. Stan Ahalt (UNC) ran a great breakout on R&D activities for Big Data in Science, and there was … Continue reading
Ioan Raicu was kind enough to invite me to lecture in his data intensive computing course earlier this week. I gave a high-level view of some of the issues in HPC I/O systems targeting computational science. Questions were good, which … Continue reading
While I’ll unfortunately be tied up much of the day in our I/O tutorial, we received some great papers this year, and I encourage you to check out the workshop on Monday Nov. 18th.
I participated in a review back in April with the goal of better understanding the needs of scientists working on DOE-sponsored experiments and facilities. Arie Shoshani and Bruce Hendrickson put together a nice report summarizing the review.
Rob Latham, Katie Antypas, Brent Welch, and I will be presenting our “Parallel I/O in Practice” tutorial at SC again this year, on Monday Nov. 18th. We always have some great discussions and are looking forward to the event!
