XSEDE IMPACT MARCH 2018

XSEDE Enables One of the Largest Earth Sciences Data Collections in the Country

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University is using XSEDE resources to host one of the largest data collections for Earth sciences of its type in the country. The data relates to the Ross Ice Shelf, a massive slab of floating ice that is about the same size as the country of France. Ice shelves, like icebergs, lie mainly below the waterline. This means that the majority of the shelf is not visible without the use of scientific instruments. Studying how the ice, ocean and underlying seabed interact will inform scientists of potential change in the ice shelf from projected climate change.   Read more >>

You Break It, You Understand It: Bridges Helps Quantum Chemists Understand Break-up of Atmospheric Chemicals

The U.S. Air Force would like to detect remotely when Bad Guys have fired a rocket. They'd also like, in an emergency, to seed the atmosphere to damp down communication disruptions from solar flares. To better understand the very different chemicals involved in these two problems, quantum chemist Peter B. Armentrout and his team at the University of Utah turned to the XSEDE supercomputers Bridges at PSC and Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.  Read more >>

Gateways 2018 Call for Participation

Call for Participation: Gateways 2018 (September 25–27, at the University of Texas at Austin) is now accepting submissions of papers, demos, tutorials, and panels (2–4 pages) on the topic of science or engineering gateways. Gateways are user-friendly interfaces to scientific computing, data, and other domain-specific resources to support research and education. Topics may include their design, use, impact, development processes, sustainability, best practices, or any other aspect that you think fellow gateway creators or users will find interesting to learn. We also welcome educational topics directed toward the next generation of gateway creators. The primary submission deadline is May 7, 2018, and a poster session deadline (open to all) will be August 1. Please click the following link for more details:  Read more >>

ECSS Symposium March 20 featuring PI Panel

Curious about XSEDE's Extended Collaborative Support Services (ECSS)? Join us at our ECSS Symposium webinar on March 20 to hear from a panel of PIs about their experiences working with ECSS. They'll share what it was like requesting ECSS support, what the collaboration was like throughout the course of the project, and how ECSS support helped them achieve results. For symposium coordinates and more information, please click the following link.   Read more >>

XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce a two-day MPI workshop, to be held April 3-4, 2018. This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing. Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. This workshop is NOT available via a webcast. For a full list of satellite sites and to register, please click the following link.  Read more >>

Science Gateways Bootcamp, May 14-18, 2018 at TACC - Now accepting applications!

Are you building or developing a science gateway (portal, virtual research environment, digital interface)? If so, the Science Gateways Bootcamp could be for you. Science Gateways Bootcamp: Strategies for Developing, Operating, and Sustaining Your Gateway is a week-long workshop for leaders of gateways who want to further develop and scale their work. Participants engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan. There is no cost to participate in the Bootcamp. The next Bootcamp will take place May 14-18, 2018 at the Texas Advanced Computing Center in Austin, Texas. Applications will be accepted through March 23, 2018. Learn more and apply now: http://sciencegateways.org/bootcamp "Before coming to the SGCI Bootcamp, I only had a limited perspective on our gateway from the host institution stakeholder point of view. Taking the time to be fully present during the Bootcamp to work with my teammate on our project opened my eyes to the real impact our gateway could have, the broader impact we can make in our community, and the opportunities and actions that are low hanging fruit to tackle in the next three months." Erin Robinson Executive Director, ESIP Data Management Training This opportunity is offered by the Science Gateways Community Institute. Learn more about SGCI at https://sciencegateways.org.
