The San Diego Supercomputer Center is seeking innovative applications for the next round of user allocations on its data-intensive Gordon supercomputer, which went into operation earlier this year.
Do you know who Michael Jackson or George Washington was? You most likely do: they are what we call “household names” because these individuals were so ubiquitous. But what about Giuseppe Tartini or John Bachar?
The San Diego Supercomputer Center has been awarded a three-year, $810,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a resource that lets researchers seamlessly share and stream scientific visualizations on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego is the lead institution on a National Science Foundation planning grant for a Science Gateway Institute that would offer a complete range of services aimed at connecting numerous individual groups developing domain-specific,…
A new study by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, and Emory University has uncovered fundamental details about the hexamer structures that make up the tiniest droplets of water, the key component of life – and one that scientists still don’t fully understand.
The University of California, at San Diego and Yale University have been awarded a collaborative grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) that gives neuroscientists broadened access to essential high-performance computing (HPC) and storage resources.
Using just an upgraded desktop computer equipped with a relatively inexpensive graphics processing card, a team of computer scientists and biochemists at the University of California, San Diego, has developed advanced GPU accelerated software and demonstrated for the first time that this approach…
Dr. Allan Snavely, a widely recognized expert in high-performance computing whose innovative thinking led to the development of the Gordon supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego, died of an apparent heart attack on Saturday, July 14. He was 49.
A first-time workshop highlighting the latest advances in the Kepler Scientific Workflow System brought together researchers and computational scientists to discuss a wide array of innovative uses for the software application, ranging from data curation of natural science collections to facilitating…
A record 340 middle and high school students have signed up for a wide range of science and technology workshops as part of 2012 StudentTECH Summer Program, organized by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego.
