"Introducing GPSI: YOUR New Computing Environment"

DATE: November 21, 2011

TIME: 10:30:00 - 11:30:00
SPEAKER: Mark Hereld, MCS
LOCATION: Building 240, 4301, Argonne National Laboratory

GPSI (pronounced "gypsy") provides computational scientists with a general purpose workbench for developing, testing, and using complex workflows for simulation and analysis. A key aspect that differentiates GPSI from other environments that support large parallel workflows is its integration with your desktop development practices. Individual process steps developed on the desktop using familiar tools and languages can be smoothly moved into GPSI to contribute to larger multi-part workflows. Piece by piece, large simulation and analysis pipelines can be built. GPSI promotes rapid prototyping through modularity, reuse mechanisms, and code sharing. The GPSI environment integrates support for job execution and management; data management and browsing; and application development and reuse. We are working with research groups in power grid simulation and analysis, automatic image analysis of APS cell data, computational neuroscience, and computational material science to improve productivity via GPSI.
