Keyes and Sterling to Headline IEEE Cluster 2013 Conference

May 21 -- IEEE Cluster 2013 conference organizers today announced that two pioneering computer scientists are the featured speakers at this year's event, September 23-27 at the Hilton Hotel in Indianapolis.

IU awarded $1.1 million to Advance Supercomputer Programmability

Indiana University’s Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST) is the recipient of a three-year, $1.1 million grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to develop software that improves the speed and programmability of supercomputers. This funding is part of a $7.05 million grant for the XPRESS (eXascale PRogramming Environment and System Software) project, led by Sandia National Laboratories as part of the DOE Office of Science Advanced Scientific Computing Research X-Stack programme.

A Sterling Future for HPC

For the past decade, keynote speakers at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) have examined the major accomplishments in HPC during the preceding year. This time the talk is more ambitious. At ISC '13 in Leipzig, Germany in June, Thomas Sterling will deliver a keynote that examines the HPC accomplishments over the last decade. He plans to reveal "the true achievement of our field."

Thomas Sterling Presents: Towards the Exascale Target – the Arrow in Flight

"The preceding year has witnessed a strong impetus towards the ultimate US achievement of practical exascale computing through the initiation of research and development programs. There are two trajectories in flight toward this ambitious target in the US, both guided principally by the DOE through an important partnership between the NNSA and the OS/ASCR.

Interview: Thomas Sterling

High-performance computing veteran Thomas Sterling has the respect of his peers and the industry. His excellent speaking skills, candor and humor complement his HPC expertise and public persona. He is also admired by young researchers and students – they seek him out at scientific computing conferences for advice on research projects and career choices. This year, at ISC’13, Sterling will be delivering a keynote on HPC Achievement and Impact - 2013, thus marking a decade as an ISC keynote speaker. Here, he is speaking to ISC’s PR manager, Nages Sieslack…

XPRESS Route to Exascale

In the world of supercomputers, where the top machines can cost upwards of $100 million, $1.1 million may not sound like much. To Thomas Sterling, chief scientist at the Center for Research in Extreme Scale Computing (CREST) at Indiana University, it's a sum that will go a long way toward funding his favorite project.

2013: Shaping Up To Be a Pivotal Year

A letter to the emerging exascale
community

By: Professor Thomas Sterling, Indiana University

As we bring 2012 to a close, and celebrate the winter solstice
and other events of perceived personal importance, it is
incumbent upon us to pause and consider progress towards
selected goals and lessons acquired through the processes
of their pursuit.
