Improving Ice-Ocean-Land Modeling
A feature in the online magazine ASCR Discovery last week explored PISCEES, the Earth-based ice component of DOE’s new Accelerated Climate Model for Energy (ACME) project. Esmond Ng is PISCEES co-PI and head of the Applied Mathematics Department at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division. “We’re applying the DOE’s most sophisticated mathematical tools to solving a problem that’s relevant to everyone,” the article quotes Ng. »Read more.

Berkeley Lab researchers will be making significant contributions to the SC14 conference program. Our staff will participate in five tutorials, present four technical papers and lead six Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. »Read more. And, at the DOE booth (#1939) staff will also give featured talks, present demonstrations and host roundtable discussions. »Read more.
Science Data Pilots: An Infrastructure to Harness Big Science Data
Science breakthroughs in the 21st century will depend on how well researchers in a variety of disciplines—from biology to the physical sciences—harness their massive datasets. But for many researchers, taking advantage of these scientific troves requires technologies and a robust computational infrastructure that doesn’t currently exist for their field. Recognizing this need, the DOE's Office of Science is bringing together researchers, network engineers and computer and computational scientists to build the tools and infrastructure for modern scientific discovery. Learn more about the progress of this work in the DOE Booth #1939. »Read more.
Meet the Editors of High Performance Parallel I/O at SC14
In this era of “big data,” high performance parallel I/O is extremely important. Yet, the last book to summarize best practices in this area was written more than 10 years ago. To fill the void, Prabhat of Berkeley Lab and Quincey Koziol of the HDF Group brought together leading practitioners, researchers, software architects, developers and scientists to contribute their insights for a new book called “High Performance Parallel I/O.” Meet the authors at SC14 in booth #1939 on Tuesday, Nov. 18 from 5:15-6 p.m. »Read more.
ESnet Supports Demos at SC14
When an estimated 10,000 high performance computing and networking experts from around the world converge on New Orleans for the SC14 conference looking for the latest developments, ESnet will play a major role in keeping everyone connected. A number of demonstrations at the conference will also be supported by ESnet, including a project led by Caltech to demonstrate terabit-level networking. »Read more.
