Dr. Robert P. Harkness, a computational astrophysicist with the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, died on Sunday, January 27, after a brief bout with cancer. He was 56.
The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), based at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has been awarded a contract for cybersecurity research and development by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has renewed funding for OpenTopography, an Internet-based project that provides open and free access to high-resolution topographic data collected by technologies such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging).
A team of researchers at the University of California, San Diego and the Institut Pasteur, Paris has come up with a novel way to describe a time-dependent brain development based on coherent–gene-groups (CGGs) and transcription-factors (TFs) hierarchy. The findings could lead to new drug designs for mental disorders such as autism-spectrum disorders (ASD) and schizophrenia.
The structure of the universe and the laws that govern its growth may be more similar than previously thought to the structure and growth of the human brain and other complex networks, such as the Internet or a social network of trust relationships between people, according to a new paper published in the science journal Nature’s Scientific Reports.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has been recognized by HPCwire, a top online publication covering high-performance computing and related technologies, for the Center’s innovative Data Oasis parallel file storage system.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has been selected as the archival host site for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) annual SciVis contest, which poses challenging research problems in science and engineering to the scientific visualization community.
Aerospace engineers and structural engineers are working together to make composite aircraft structures safer. Visual artists are using nanoengineering tools, such as a scanning electron microscope, to make art. Structural engineers and medical device researchers are joining forces to improve the design of a heart pump for children born with heart defects. These are only a few of the examples of multi-disciplinary work taking place in the new Structural and Materials Engineering building at the University of California, San Diego.
For the second consecutive year, The Atlantic, a magazine that has played a central role in shaping the national debate on current affairs and cultural trends for 150 years, has chosen to partner with UC San Diego to co-host a forum of national prominence on campus.
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.
