XSEDE IMPACT October 2016
Saving wetlands with computers
The coastal wetlands of Louisiana near the mouth of the Mississippi River in the Gulf of Mexico are at risk. Since 2015, XSEDE has emerged as an important tool to help stifle land loss thanks to a science gateway called "SIMULOCEAN," which was developed by the Coastal Hazards Research Collaboratory (CHARCOL) led by Prof. Q. Jim Chen at Louisiana State University (LSU). Read more >>
APS March Meeting looking for abstracts
The American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting (March 13-17, 2017) in New Orleans is looking for abstracts for the "Computational Physics at the Petascale and Beyond" focus session. Only APS members can submit abstracts; they're due by November 11, 2016. Read more >>
XSEDE seeking partner institutions to offer course in applications of parallel computing
XSEDE and the University of California, Berkeley are offering an online course on parallel computing for graduate students and advanced undergraduates and are seeking university partners that are interested in offering the course for credit to their students. Read more >>
Chameleon: A bridge to XSEDE's 'Bridges'
In the rapidly emerging and flexible computing paradigm of cloud computing, a new system was needed to address the academic research community's needs to develop and experiment with novel cloud architectures and pursue new applications of cloud computing in customized environments. Chameleon, launched in 2015, was designed to do just that. Read more >>
Diversifying bioinformatic programs
Bringing more minority students into the bioinformatics training pipeline may require more funding and a major rethink of STEM outreach to minority-serving institutions (MSIs). That's the conclusion reached by a team from the University of Puerto Rico and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC). The team surveyed students from MSIs before and after an intensive two-month summer bioinformatics internship offered by PSC, and presented their research at the XSEDE16 supercomputing conference in Miami in July.
