High Performance Computing with BlueGene/L and
Building 510 Physics Department Seminar Room
at Brookhaven National Laboratory
Date: October 27 & 28 2004
Sponsors - Argonne National Laboratory, Brookhaven National
Laboratory, Columbia University, Edinburgh University, IBM Corporation, RIKEN BNL
BlueGene/L and QCDOC are new computer architectures that are
designed to be highly scalable with low latency communications and
unprecedented computing performance. With the arrival of hardware based
on these architectures at several institutions we have organized a
highly topical workshop to investigate the full potential of these
machines and how to utilize them toward the widest range of applications
including biology, climate modeling and high energy physics.
The goal of this two-day workshop is to:
- Explore and understand applications and algorithms that have
already been ported to these machines.
- Expose scientists and the community to these emerging highly
- Identify areas where collaboration among the sponsoring
institutions can be fruitful.
- Provide information on how to identify applications that fit
the BlueGene/L or QCDOC Architectural models and helpful tips on how to
port and tune codes.
The workshop is divided into the following sessions:
- Hardware and Software status review of both machines,
- Presentations on currently ported and prospective
applications, including Linpack benchmarks.
- Helpful tips in identifying appropriate codes and tuning.
