Argonne scientists awarded supercomputing time to enable scientific breakthroughs
Date:12/1/2010

Four researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory lead projects that have been awarded a total of 65 million hours of computing time on Argonne's energy-efficient Blue Gene/P ("Intrepid") supercomputer. The researchers will conduct advanced simulation and analysis, performing virtual experiments that would be almost impossible and impractical in the natural world. They will also develop scalable system software needed to fully harness the power of supercomputers.

"The Department of Energy's supercomputers provide an enormous competitive advantage for the United States," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "This is a great example of how investments in innovation can help lead the way to new industries, new jobs and new opportunities for America to succeed in the global marketplace."

The Argonne-led projects are among 57 high-impact research projects aimed at breakthroughs in clean energy, climate science and fundamental research. DOE's Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program enables scientists and engineers to conduct cutting-edge research in just weeks or months, rather than years or decades, by providing access and support to powerful supercomputing resources at DOE's Leadership Computing Facilities at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

"By providing millions of hours of computing time on Argonne's Intrepid and the Cray XT5 ("Jaguar") at Oak Ridge, the DOE INCITE awards allow us to address some of the nation's most challenging scientific problems," said Rick Stevens, associate laboratory director for computing, environment and life sciences at Argonne.

The projects, selected competitively based on their potential to advance scientific discovery, range from improving battery technology to better understanding health and disease. They are profiled below in brief summaries. A full listing of awards
