A New "Frontera" for Science Discoveries

On August 28th, TACC, UT Austin, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced a $60 million award to support Frontera, TACC's latest leadership-class supercomputer. For his podcast, host Jorge Salazar took the opportunity to speak with Manish Parashar, Office Director for NSF's Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, to discuss the changing landscape in advanced computing.

Nanopore Supercomputer Simulations Could Help Improve Medical Diagnostics

Water is nearly incompressible at normal scales, but using TACC supercomputers, scientists found they can control water compression at the nanoscale using an electric field. These findings could help advance medical diagnostics through the creation of nanoscale systems that detect, identify, and sort biomolecules.

Tim Cockerill Named New Director of User Services

Tim Cockerill is TACC's new director for User Services. Tim replaces Chris Hempel, who previously served as the center's director of User Services for 21 years, and retired from UT Austin in August. In his new role, Tim is managing the User Services group, where he oversees the allocations process by which computing time and storage is awarded on TACC's HPC systems. The User Services team is also responsible for user account management, training, and user guides. Congratulations, Tim, and thank you, Chris!

State of Science

In September, more than 100 computational scientists and students from 16 Texas academic institutions and six industry partners met in Austin for the inaugural TACC Symposium for Texas Researchers (TACCSTER). Scholars showcased their research, networked with other Texas-based scientists, and learned about the latest TACC systems and services.

Gateways 2018 – Video Recap

Science gateways allow researchers to access shared data, software and computing resources through web portals or a suite of desktop applications. Hosted by TACC, gateway developers from across the nation met at Gateways 2018 to learn, share, connect, and shape the future of the field. Reporters from Science Node were in attendance to explore why gateways are the secret sauce behind scientific discovery.
