SUPERCOMPUTING Running with a Jaguar . . .

Four of six teams competing for the top honor among scientific computing applications ran on Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Jaguar supercomputer, the world's most powerful. The teams are finalists for this year's Gordon Bell Prize, which will be awarded during the SC10 supercomputing conference in New Orleans November 13󈝿. Named for supercomputing pioneer Gordon Bell, the prize traditionally goes to the world's fastest application, although special awards frequently recognize achievements in areas such as algorithms, structuring of data for interpretation, or implementation of new technologies. Finalists using Jaguar this year include teams led by Thomas Jordan of the University of Southern California, which simulated a massive Southern California earthquake, George Biros of Georgia Tech, which simulated red blood cells flowing in plasma, Thomas Schulthess of ETH Zurich and ORNL, which simulated electronic structures at the atomic level, and Carsten Burstedde of the University of TexasAustin, which is pursuing techniques for getting the greatest scientific discovery from limited computing resources. Jaguar also hosted the Gordon Bell Prize winners from 2008 and 2009. [Contact: Eric Gedenk, (865) 680-6844; gedenked@ornl.gov]
