SC18 Big Success for TACC

SC18 in Dallas was a big success for TACC. The center won first and second place in the scientific visualization awards, took home a Reader's Choice HPCwire award, oversaw a successful student cluster competition, led another successful Computing4Change event, and made numerous contributions to the SC18 committee, technical program, and other aspects of the conference.

Undergraduate Students Apply Advanced Computing to Combat Violence

During SC18, two dozen students from around the world teamed up to develop computational solutions to violence as part of the Computing4Change competition. The program, now in its third year, was developed by staff at TACC, the Southeastern Universities Research Association, and various U.S. institutions and empowers students to create change through advanced computing.

A New Way to See Stress Using Supercomputers

Stress is the force exerted on one thing by another. Scientists typically handle stress mathematically by assuming it to have symmetry. However, supercomputer simulations have shown that at the atomic level, material stress does not behave symmetrically. The findings could help scientists design new materials such as glass or metal that do not ice up.

TACC, Partners Win HPCwire Award

Congratulations to Dell, Cambridge University, the Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) and the Department of Science and Technology (South Africa), and TACC on the HPCwire Workforce Diversity Leadership Award for the HPC Ecosystem Project. The project started in 2013, when TACC donated several server racks of the retired Ranger cluster to CHPC in South Africa to help train students and provide access to HPC.
