  • The report presents results of a Gas Research Institute workshop held to explore gas industry opportunities arising from advances in high-performance computing and communications (HPCC) and related technologies. The workshop teamed almost 30 GRI managers and HPCC experts from several research organizations. In addition to identified near-term applications of supercomputing and visualization, HPCC is found to have many potential future applications. Advances in artificial intelligence, advanced workstations, portable 'notebook' computers, personal digital assistants (handheld fax/phone/computer), high-speed networks, microprocessor-based actuators and sensors, and associated software will facilitate new ways of conducting business and performing research.
  • Measuring and controlling the power and energy consumption of high performance computing systems by various components in the software stack is an active research area [13, 3, 5, 10, 4, 21, 19, 16, 7, 17, 20, 18, 11, 1, 6, 14, 12]. Implementations in lower level software layers are beginning to emerge in some production systems, which is very welcome. To be most effective, a portable interface to measurement and control features would significantly facilitate participation by all levels of the software stack. We present a proposal for a standard power Application Programming Interface (API) that endeavors to cover themore » entire software space, from generic hardware interfaces to the input from the computer facility manager.« less

  • Staff of Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia University, IBM and the RIKEN BNL Research Center organized a one-day workshop held on February 28, 2003 at Brookhaven to promote the following goals: (1) To explore areas other than QCD applications where the QCDOC and BlueGene/L machines can be applied to good advantage, (2) To identify areas where collaboration among the sponsoring institutions can be fruitful, and (3) To expose scientists to the emerging software architecture. This workshop grew out of an informal visit last fall by BNL staff to the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center that resulted in a continuing dialogmore » among participants on issues common to these two related supercomputers. The workshop was divided into three sessions, addressing the hardware and software status of each system, prospective applications, and future directions.« less
