This is the third of a series of Scottish Parallel Computational Mathematics Meetings to explore and develop synergies between major Scottish research activities in parallel computational mathematics, e.g. NAIS, HPC-GAP, SCIEnce, Computational Statistics and Cognitive Neuroscience, Vector Processing Languages.
John Blair-Smith (University of Edinburgh) will give a talk at the Strathclyde NA Seminar Series.
Title: History repeats itself in numeric and High Performance Computing
General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units are changing the landscape of high performance computing, with the current number one theoretical peak performance supercomputer Nebulae based GPUs. On October 26th you will have the opportunity to hear about the abilities of GPUs for high performance computing, directly from two of the nVIDIA researchers: Chris Butler and Timothy Lanfear. This workshop will include both an introduction to the architecture and capabilities of the new Tesla series GPUs, as well as exemplar applications.
This short meeting will feature a collection of introductory talks addressing computational techniques for studying relaxation processes and molecular structure of glasses. PhD students are especially encouraged to attend.
This is a workshop on Matrix and Operator Pencils, run by the EPSRC-funded MOPNET Network. The final day of the meeting is devoted to HPC issues and funded by NAIS.
This meeting will address formulation issues, numerical methods, and the implementation of algorithms for probing molecular models, especially multiscale simulation methods. We will bring together mathematicians and computer scientists with physical scientists, to accelerate the transfer of theoretical methodology mathematical ideas into application.
This is the annual meeting of the Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software Centre. The meeting will feature talks by Laxmikant Kale (Illinois) and Andreas Frommer (Wuppertal) as well as presentations by NAIS Staff. This is an open event for UK researchers funded by the NAIS Centre. The theme of the 2010 meeting is "new algorithms for the evolving HPC platform". The meeting this year is as broad as NAIS itself and includes numerical methods, paradigms for parallel computing algorithm development, and ideas for languages and HPC compilers
The workshop is intended to be a mix of training and project- facilitation. It will include elements of pertinent training for NAIS members, plus consider key themes that will help us to explore the vision of NAIS and plan future research areas for the consortium. The themes are: * Extreme-scale computing. * Novel approaches to scientific computing. The workshop is targeted at NAIS members and NAIS-Network affiliates.
At the heart of the schedule there will be a poster session by researchers describing current work and presentation booths for SMEs allowing a dynamic interaction. The event includes a number of presentations by SMEs describing what they do, what they want from researchers and what they want the EU to do to help them. The event will also include several cluster meetings discussing research directions relevant to NAIS, such as parallel programming and multi-core platforms. In addition, one of our keynote speakers is Mario Nemirovsky from the Barcelona Supercomputer Center. Finally, there will also be a presentation by the EU Project Officer Panagiotis Tsarchopoulos, outlining substantial funding opportunities in 2011. If you are interested in interacting with the best computer systems researchers in Europe, meeting new industrial partners and getting funded by the EU, then this event will be of interest to you.
NAIS Lecturer, Magnus Svard (University of Edinburgh) will speak at the Stathclyde NA seminar series.
Title: Finite difference methods for the Navier-Stokes equations
