Berkeley Lab Contributes to SC10 Tech Program

November 2, 2010

As in past years, Berkeley Lab staff will again make significant contributions to the technical program at SC10, being held Nov. 13-19 in New Orleans. Here's a short summary of those activities with Berkeley Lab staff names in bold: Awards  James Demmel, a professor of mathematics and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley with a joint appointment in the Future Technologies Group at LBNL, has been named the recipient of the 2010 IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach… Read More »

Berkeley Lab Researchers Receive $6.3 Million to Tackle Supercomputing Challenges

September 30, 2010

Leading-edge supercomputing systems play a vital role for pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery, from predicting trends in global climate to understanding how supernovae detonate. Although today's fastest systems perform at the "petascale," executing about a quadrillion calculations per second, even this is not fast enough to meet the needs of future mission critical Department of Energy applications in climate and energy-security. Over the last two years, the nation's leading computer… Read More »

Catching Carbon with Computer Simulations

September 30, 2010

Fossil fuel burning power plants currently produce about 40 percent of all human generated carbon dioxide (CO2) gas in the United States. Because CO2 keeps Earth's heat from dissipating into space, experts believe that its increased presence in the atmosphere is directly causing global temperatures to rapidly rise. Read More »
