Regional Champions

The Regional Champion Program is built upon the principles and goals of the XSEDE Champion Program. The Regional Champion network facilitates education and training opportunities for researchers, faculty, students and staff in their region that help them make effective use of local, regional and national digital resources and services. Additionally, the Regional Champion Program provides oversight and assistance in a predefined geographical region to ensure that all Champions in that region receive the information and assistance they require, as well as establish a bi-directional conduit between Champions in the region and the XSEDE champion staff, thus ensuring a more efficient dissemination of information, allowing finer grained support. Finally, the Regional Champions acts as a regional point of contact and coordination, to assist in scaling up the Champion program by working with the champion staff to coordinate and identify areas of opportunity for expanding outreach to the user community.

Regional Champions are coordinated by Jeff Pummill.

Student Champions

Campus Champions programs include Regional, Student, and Domain Champions.

 

Student Champions

Student Champion volunteer responsibilities may vary from one institution to another and depending on your Mentor. Student Champions may work with their Campus Champion Mentor to provide outreach on campus to help users access the best advanced computing resource that will help them accomplish their research goals, provide training to users on campus, or work on special projects assigned by your Mentor. Student Champions are also encouraged to attend the annual PEARC conference and participate in the PEARC student program as well as submit posters or papers to the conference.

Iron (Fe) pseudocarbynes are likely widespread in the interstellar medium, where extremely cold temperatures would lead carbon chains to condense on Fe clusters. Over eons, the formation of complex organic molecules would be facilitated from Fe pseudocarbynes. The model shows a hydrogen-capped carbon chain attached to an Fe13 cluster (iron atoms are shown as reddish brown, carbon is gray, hydrogen is light gray).

XSEDE resources used to discover new class of molecules

Iron, which is largely known for steel manufacturing, is most typically found in gaseous form in stars such as the sun and in a more condensed form in planets such as Earth. Astrophysicists know that iron is one of the most abundant elements in the universe, after lightweight elements such as hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen.

Iron in interstellar environments should also be common, but astrophysicists detect only low levels of the gaseous kind. This implies to researchers that the missing iron exists in some kind of solid form or molecular state, yet identifying its hiding place has remained elusive.

A team of cosmo-chemists at Arizona State University, with support from the W.M. Keck Foundation, now claims that the mystery may be simpler than it seems. The iron isn't really missing, they say. Instead, it's hiding in plain sight. The iron is believed to have combined with carbon molecules to form molecular chains called iron pseudocarbynes. The spectra of these chains are almost identical with the much more common chains of carbon atoms, long known to be abundant in interstellar space.

The team used the National Science Foundation-funded Extreme Science and Discovery Environment (XSEDE)'s Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), an Organized Research unit at the University of California San Diego, to validate their findings, published earlier this year in the Astrophysical Journal.

"We are proposing a new class of molecules that are likely to be widespread in the interstellar medium," said Pilarisetty Tarakeshwar, a research associate professor in ASU's School of Molecular Sciences. His co-authors, Peter Buseck and Frank Timmes, are both in ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration; Buseck, an ASU regents professor, is also in the School of Molecular Sciences with Tarakeshwar.

The team examined how clusters containing only a few atoms of metallic iron might join with chains of carbon atoms to produce molecules combining both elements. Recent evidence obtained from stardust and meteorites indicates the widespread occurrence of clusters of iron atoms in the cosmos. In the extremely cold temperatures of interstellar space, these iron clusters act as deep-freeze particles, enabling carbon chains of various lengths to stick to them, thus producing different molecules from those that can occur during the gaseous phase of iron.

Said Tarakeshwar, "We used Comet to calculate what the spectra of these molecules would look like, and we found that they have spectroscopic signatures nearly identical to carbon-chain molecules without any iron." He added that because of this, "previous astrophysical observations could have overlooked these carbon-plus-iron molecules."

The researchers say this means that the missing iron in the interstellar medium is actually out in plain view but masquerading as common carbon-chain molecules.

"The calculations involving iron pseudocarbynes were computationally challenging because we had to optimize the geometries and calculate the spectroscopic properties of several open-shell systems," said Tarakeshwar. "The computational resources on Comet (including the software installed on it) were instrumental in enabling us to complete most preliminary calculations in a couple of months. The support of SDSC staff, especially Mahidhar Tatineni, was extremely valuable because many problems we encountered were expeditiously resolved as soon as we encountered them."

The new work may also solve another longstanding puzzle. Carbon chains with more than nine atoms are unstable, according to the research team. Yet observations have detected more complex carbon molecules in interstellar space. How nature builds these complex carbon molecules from simpler carbon molecules has been a longstanding mystery.

"Longer carbon chains are stabilized by the addition of iron clusters," said Buseck, noting that this opens a new pathway for building more complex molecules in space such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons, of which naphthalene — the main ingredient in mothballs — is a familiar example.

Said Timmes, "Our work provides new insights into bridging the yawning gap between molecules containing nine or fewer carbon atoms and complex molecules such as C60 buckminsterfullerene, better known as 'buckyballs.'"

Since its inception, computational chemistry has been extremely interdisciplinary. "Resources such as XSEDE, which are operational because of the shared expertise of several talented people, reinforce the idea that one can advance fundamental understanding and solve cutting-edge problems by using such resources

Service Provider Forum

The national cyberinfrastructure ecosystem is powered by a broad set of Service Providers (SP). The XSEDE Federation primarily consists of SPs that are autonomous entities that agree to coordinate with XSEDE and each other to varying degrees. The XSEDE Federation may also include other non-service provider organizations.

Service Providers are projects or organizations that provide cyberinfrastructure (CI) services to the science and engineering community. In the US academic community, there is a rich diversity of SPs, spanning centers that are funded by NSF to operate large-scale resources for the national research community to universities that provide resources and services to their local researchers. The Service Provider Forum is intended to facilitate this ecosystem of SPs, thereby advancing the science and engineering researchers that rely on these cyberinfrastructure services. The SP Forum provides:

  • An open forum for discussion of topics of interest to the SP community.
  • A formal communication channel between the SP Forum members and the XSEDE project.

SPs are classified as being at a specific level by meeting a minimum set of conditions.They may meet additional conditions at their option, but classification at a specific level will be based on the stated required minimum conditions.

Briefly, Level 1 SPs meet all the XSEDE integration requirements and will explicitly share digital services with the broader community. Level 2 SPs make some digital services accessible via XSEDE and Level 3 SPs are the most loosely coupled; they will share the characteristics of their services via XSEDE, but need not make those services available beyond their local community. For more detailed descriptions, see the documents linked below.

 XSEDE-Allocated Supercomputer Models Provide Insight on Turbine Wakes

Over the past few years, offshore wind farms have emerged across the world as a viable source of energy.  While these powerful floating wind turbines are typically more than 800 feet tall and can weigh some 50 tons or more, they reduce land-use concerns, access better offshore wind resources, and can generate more power than land wind turbine farms. However, they present a complex engineering design problem: how can they be optimized to operate in the uniquely challenging offshore environment?

In a Journal of Physics: Conference Series paper published this summer called Large eddy simulations of floating offshore wind turbine wakes with coupled platform motion, researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) discussed their efforts to advance our knowledge of this issue. 

Specifically, the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the Stampede2 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) were used to perform simulations that showed how floating turbine wakes are very similar those of fixed-bottom turbines, except that floating turbine wakes are deflected upward and have slightly stronger turbulence at the edge of their wakes.

"We looked at how these wake effects can be accurately considered when designing floating offshore wind farms," said lead author and National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow Hannah Johlas. "At about 20,000 computer processor hours (per run), these high-fidelity large eddy simulations are very computationally intensive and expensive, and as such, this research can only be performed using supercomputers."

The collaborative study aimed to better understand how the wake effects of large wind farm arrays decrease power output and reduce the lifespan of the turbines. Because of the growing prospect for floating wind farms, the researchers focused on the differences between floating turbine wakes and fixed turbine wakes.

The large eddy wind turbine simulations were completed with Comet and Stampede2 using the computational fluid dynamics software Simulator fOr Wind Farm Applications (SOWFA), coupled with the wind turbine modeling tool OpenFAST for the platform and turbine motion. The downstream wake characteristics of the floating platform were compared to equivalent fixed platform cases for different wind speeds, wave heights, wind-wave alignments, and turbine yaw angles.

Overall, the differences in wake shape between floating and fixed platforms were associated with mean platform displacements, while differences in turbulence were associated with time-varying platform motion. However, these observed wake differences between fixed and floating platforms were found to be quite small, especially for higher wind speeds and lower wave heights.

"With global-installed capacity of offshore wind increasing from 8.9 gigawatts in 2015 to 22.5 gigawatts in 2018, this research is becoming even more prevalent and now that we know more about how wakes behave for floating turbines, we will examine how those floating-turbine wakes affect downstream turbine power generation and structural loading," said Johlas, who has focused her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on this project.

"Comet and Stampede2's reliability and computing environment flexibility helped complete this research in a time-efficient manner," added Johlas. "As this research was funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, there were no funds available for purchasing supercomputing time, so access to XSEDE supercomputers really enabled this research to happen at all. Also, XSEDE's support team helped solve environment setup and file system usage issues for us."

Johlas' research group, led by PI David Schmidt, previously used XSEDE-allocated resources, including Comet and Stampede2, for several years.

"XSEDE makes available some of the most reliably useful high-performance computers available to university researchers in my field," she said. "Since the progress of my research directly depends upon reliable access to supercomputing time, resources such as XSEDE enable researchers like me to envision more accurate, more complex simulations than are possible when using lower-fidelity tools." 

The research was funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, grant #1451512. The project used the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) program funded by NSF grant #ACI-1548562, as well as NREL computational resources sponsored by the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

On July 2, 2019, a total eclipse of the sun was visible across the South Pacific, Chile, and Argentina. While the final model predicting the details of the eclipse was run on the Pleiades supercomputer at NASA's Advanced Supercomputing division at the Ames Research Center, Predictive Science Inc. researchers used the National Science Foundation's Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE)'s allocated Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the Stampede2 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center for preliminary test runs.

Why are these preliminary predictions important?

With the solar corona modeling work, the researchers are answering fundamental science questions about how the corona is heated and how the supersonic solar wind is accelerated. This understanding will ultimately enable forecasters to make better space weather predictions, which are relevant for high-altitude air travel where adverse space weather can affect conditions at the same elevations that airplanes travel.

"Comet is a great resource for our initial investigations because we can run and analyze test cases very quickly," said Pete Riley, a computational physicist at Predictive Science. "Without the XSEDE allocation for Stampede2 and Comet, our work on this latest prediction of the solar eclipse would have been considerably more difficult."

Not only have Predictive Science researchers used supercomputers for their work on solar eclipse predictions, but they have also run calculations ranging from simulations of coronal mass ejections to forecasts of influenza outbreaks, which impacts three to five million people around the world every year.

.Specifically, Riley and his colleagues are working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to better predict seasonal influenza virus patterns and spread. As with their space weather studies, the influenza forecasting project is important because of the impact that this disease has on the general population.

"Our predictions have certainly become more accurate through the use of SDSC and XSEDE resources," said Riley. "Perhaps more importantly, the support we receive from XSEDE staff has been incredible. It's allowed us to focus on model development and analysis of the results, and not on any difficulties that might arise from using these complex architectures."

Peace of Mind through AI
 
"Deep learning" artificial intelligence on XSEDE systems promises fewer false alarms and early prediction of breast cancer development
 
 
Screening mammography is an important tool against breast cancer, but it has its limitations. A "normal" screening mammogram means that a woman doesn't have cancer now. But doctors wonder whether "normal" images contain clues about a woman's risk of developing breast cancer in the future.Also, most women "recalled" for more tests when their mammograms show suspicious masses don't have cancer. With the help of XSEDE's Extended Collaborative Support Services (ECSS) and Novel and Innovative Projects (NIP), scientists at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center are using the XSEDE-allocated Bridges-AI supercomputer at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center to run artificial intelligence programs meant to determine the risk of developing breast cancer and to prevent false recalls.
 
 
Using AIs to identify false recalls by classifying the three categories (negative, false recalls, and malignancy) of digital mammogram images in breast cancer screening.
 
Life Isn't Ches s — Times Six
 
In a first, an AI program running on XSEDE-allocated resource overcomes multiple human poker champions
 
 
Artificial intelligence (AI) research took a great leap forward when a Carnegie Mellon University computer program overcame the world's best professional players in a series of six-player poker games. Experimenting with multi-player, "incomplete information" games offers more useful lessons for real-world problems such as security, business negotiations and cancer therapy than one-on-one, "complete information" games like chess or go. Running on the XSEDE-allocated Bridges system at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, the Pluribus AI was the first to surpass humanity's best at such a game.

Turbulence Meets a Shock
 
Stampede2 , ECSS help simulate shock turbulence interactions
 
 
This may come as a shock, if you're moving fast enough. The shock being shock waves. Far out in the cosmos, a collapsing star generates shock waves from particles racing near the speed of light as the star goes supernova. Scientists are using supercomputers allocated through XSEDE, including Stampede2 at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), to get a better understanding of turbulent flows that interact with shock waves. This understanding could help develop supersonic and hypersonic aircraft, more efficient engine ignition, as well as probe the mysteries of supernova explosions, star formation, and more.
 
 
A new theoretical framework was developed and tested using the Stampede2 supercomputer to understand turbulent jumps of mean thermodynamic quantities, shock structure and amplification factors. Turbulence comes in from the left in this image, hitting the shock, and leaving the domain from the right. This three-dimensional picture shows the structure of enstrophy and colored by local Mach number with the shock at gray. Credit: Chang-Hsin Chen, TAMU.
 
Magnetic Fields with a Laser Beam
 
XSEDE-allocated supercomputers aid in novel simulations of x-ray laser research
 
 
While intense magnetic fields are naturally generated by neutron stars, researchers have been striving to achieve similar results in the laboratory for many years. Tao Wang, a University of California San Diego mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate student, recently demonstrated how an extremely strong magnetic field, similar to that on the surface of a neutron star, can be not only generated but also detected using an x-ray laser inside a solid material. Wang carried out his research with the help of simulations conducted on the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center ( SDSC ) as well as Stampede1 and Stampede2 at the Texas Advanced Computing Center ( TACC ). All resources were allocated via XSEDE.
 
 
This Comet -generated simulation illustrates how an intense laser pulse renders a dense material relativistically transparent, thereby allowing it to propagat e the material is penetrated and the laser pushes the electrons to form an extremely strong magnetic field. The strength is comparable to that on a neutron star's surface, which is at least 100 million times stronger than the Earth's magnetic field and a thousand times stronger than the field of superconducting magnets. Credit: Tao Wang, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and the Center for Energy Research, UC San Diego.
