BOINC@TACC Training, March 20, 2020

The BOINC@TACC Training will be held on March 20th, 2020 from 1pm to 3pm CT.   The BOINC@TACC project is based on the Volunteer Computing (VC) model. It helps researchers in running applications from a wide range of scientific domains on laptops, desktops, tablets, or cloud-based Virtual Machines (VMs) owned by volunteers. With BOINC@TACC, students and researchers can run small high-throughput computing jobs (that is, the jobs that involve small amounts of data transfer and...

Short Course on Containers at TACC, March 6, 2020

A short course on Containers will be offered at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) on March 6th, 2020, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm CT   Software containers are an important common currency for portable and reproducible computing. Learn best practices on building, using, and sharing Docker and Singularity containers in this hands-on workshop. Also learn how to run those containers on TACC HPC systems, including MPI and GPU aware containers.   This training is available to...

The TACC Institute Series offers attendees intense, immersive training in advanced computation, with topics ranging from developing parallel applications for modern high performance computers to visualizing and analyzing large data sets, administering leadership-class advanced computing systems, executing reproducible experiments in the cloud, and purchasing and operating considerations for organizations wanting to add advanced computing resources to their R&D portfolio. Registration...

SGCI's Julia Looney Featured in the Science Node Paths to HPC Series

Julia Looney Overcoming imposter syndrome to find the secret to her own 'good enough' Our new series, Paths to HPC, showcases women working in high-performance computing. Our hope is that by highlighting these trailblazers—and the sometimes unique paths they followed into the field—other women will feel inspired to envision themselves in similar roles. Today we talk with Julia Looney , Python Developer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) . What was your...

SGCI's Maytal Dahan Featured in the Science Node Paths to HPC Series

Maytal Dahan When marine biology means too much chemistry, a first-generation college student falls in love with computer programming. Our new series, Paths to HPC, showcases women working in high-performance computing. Our hope is that by highlighting these trailblazers—and the sometimes unique paths they followed into the field—other women will feel inspired to envision themselves in similar roles. Today we talk with Maytal Dahan , director of Advanced Computing Interfaces...

SGCI Partner BOINC Provides Volunteer Computing Through BOINC@TACC

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) project, an SGCI Partner , has, for the past 17 years, provided volunteer computing services to help provide an alternative way of doing scientific computing that's usually done on grids, clusters, and clouds. The recently developed program BOINC@TACC is the first use of volunteer computing by a major high performance computing center.  Learn all about the BOINC@TACC program in this article from HPC Wire...

TACC-2-BOINC Project

BOINC, an SGCI partner , has teamed up with TACC to bring its open-source software platform for volunteer computing and client-server architecture to researchers using TACC resources. The TACC-2-BOINC project aims to grow the promising mode of distributed computing offered by BOINC. The project team behind TACC-2-BOINC includes Thomas Johnson, a 2018 SGCI Summer intern. Johnson was also recently selected to participate in the Computing4Change competition at SC18.  More...

Science Gateways Supporting Deep Earth Imaging

The Texas Advanced Computing Center recently published an article about how science gateways are making it possible for researchers to explore the existence of mantle plumes. Thus far, the plumes are hypothesized, mushroom-shaped upwellings of hot rock from deep in the Earth. With the help of supercomputer simulations, one team has, for the first time, detailed how plumes decelerate seismic waves and how plumes appear in seismic tomographic images of the Earth's mantle. This work could help...

SGCI's Maytal Dahan to Oversee TACC's Advanced Computing Interfaces Group

Maytal Dahan, who leads the SGCI's Scientific Software Collaborative, was recently promoted to the position of Director of Advanced Computing Interfaces (ACI) at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). ACI at TACC includes the Web and Mobile Applications (WMA) and Cloud and Interactive Computing (CIC) groups, where Dahan will direct the overall strategy and management of science gateways and cloud services.  Read the article from TACC that announces her promotion and also...

Computational Science in the Cloud Institute at TACC

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) is offering the Computational Science in the Cloud Institute as part of The TACC Institute Series. This 5-day workshop, taking place July 24-28, 2017, will provide participants with an end-to-end introduction to performing scientific simulations and analyses in a cloud-based environment. Participants will build their own virtual machines, setup Jupyter notebooks, learn to use APIs for provisioning and bootstrapping VMs, attach VMs to cloud and...
