TCS Conference Center Argonne National Laboratory For the 4th year in a row, the PMRS group (part of the Mathematics and Computer Science Division) presented a full-day MPI tutorial at Argonne free of charge to ~80 registered attendees. The tutorial … Continue reading
Min Si, a Ph.D. guest graduate student in the Programming Models and Runtime Systems (PMRS) group, received the 2016 NERSC Award for Innovative Use of HPC in the Early Career category for her work on “novel system software in the context of MPI-3 one-sided communication.” This award will be officially announced at the NERSC user group (NUG) meeting on March 22nd. Min will also give a talk (remote presentation) on the science and computational aspects of her work on the afternoon of March 22 in the Building 50 auditorium at Berkeley Lab.
