GCS Centres to attend SC18 in Dallas, TX (USA), Nov. 11-16
Newsflash –

SC18, the leading international exhibition and conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, will take place in Dallas, Texas, USA, November 11-16, 2018. HLRS (High Performance Computing Center, Stuttgart), JSC (Jülich Supercomputing Centre), and LRZ (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Garching/Munich) will again participate in the conference.

HLRS - Booth #3627

This year, the HLRS Visualization Department is bringing the Black Forest to Dallas on its booth #3627. Climb into a paraglider simulator, catch some updrafts, and fly through a race course over the forest landscape. Additionally, HLRS’s Vistle software environment using head-tracked immersive virtual reality equipment will be presented. Visitors can experience an interactive remote visualization of large-scale simulation results located in Stuttgart.

The European Exascale Projects will present several exascale-related research projects funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 program. HLRS is a project partner in several of these efforts, which are presented at booth # 237.

JSC – Booth #3453

This year's central topic at the JSC booth #3453 will be the concept of modular supercomputing and the presentation of the new modular supercomputer JUWELS. One application focus will be Earth system modelling (ESM). Videos with results of multi-scale climate simulations will be presented and the distribution and climatic effects of volcanic ashes in the atmosphere will be visualized using an augmented reality (AR) system. Other topics are JSC's involvement in the infrastructure FENIX for the Human Brain Project, the cooperation with the RWTH Aachen in the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA) and activities in the field of deep learning. In addition in-house developed HPC tools like LLview, SIONlib, JUBE, and Scalasca are demonstrated and JSC's support infrastructure will be presented. The DEEP projects will be guest at the JSC booth.

As part of the conference programme, JSC employees will offer the tutorial "Application Porting and Optimization on GPU-Accelerated POWER Architectures", present talks, and participate in numerous special interest group sessions and attached workshops. JSC staff will also be present at the PRACE booth #2033.

LRZ – Booth #1841

In a joint effort, together with the Chair of Computer Architecture and Parallel Systems of the Technical University of Munich’s Department of Informatics, the Munich Network Management Team of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and the Erlangen Regional Computing Center (RRZE) of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre will bring "Bayerische Gemütlichkeit“ to Dallas, Texas. Meet the Bavarian HPC representatives at booth #1841 and enjoy a taste of Bavarian culture, tradition, and hospitality—according to the foursome’s motto: "Bits, Bytes, Brezel & Bier – Supercomputing in Bavaria“.
