Workshops around the country
The XSEDE project is pleased to announce that registration for the 2016 faculty computational science education workshops is still open. There are no fees for participating in the workshops. The workshops also cover local accommodations and food during the workshop hours for those outside of commuting distance to the host sites. The workshops are at: Boise State University on July 18-20, 2016, and at West Virginia State University on August 1-3. Read more
XSEDE16: Dr. Helen Turner Named Plenary Speaker
A leading STEM advocate, Dr. Helen Turner has been named a plenary speaker for the XSEDE16 conference taking place July 17-21, 2016, in Miami. Turner is Chaminade University's Dean of Natural Sciences and a tenured Professor of Biology. In this dynamic keynote address, Turner will discuss gaps in the Pacific educational ecosystem for science and technology, and the needed fusion of science and culture in STEM educational opportunities.

A Dance with Algorithms
Philippe Pasquier, a professor at Simon Frasier University, is merging art and science to create systems that can understand and produce human-quality movement. Pasquier's project, Movement Style Machine, uses deep learning techniques and relies on the collaboration of graduate students with artists to create new algorithms. Through XSEDE, the researchers run their algorithms on the Stampede supercomputer. There are numerous applications for this technology including dance, film, art and the video game industry.

An Ocean of Impacts
A "more realistic" computer model, created with the aid of Gordon at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego and an XSEDE supercomputing resource, paints a new picture of global warming's impact on the complex processes that drive ocean mixing in the vast eddies swirling off the California coast.

A simulation done with XSEDE resources explains the intricacies of powerful jets generated by supermassive black holes. Some are visible across the universe, while others fall apart and never pierce the halo of the galaxy. Researchers at UC-Berkeley and Princeton used Darter at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at the University of Tennesee, Knoxville, and Stampede, Maverick and Ranch computers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin.
