JSC @ SC18

SC18, the leading international exhibition and conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, will take place in Dallas, Texas, USA, from 11 to 16 November 2018. This year's central topic at 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 showing results of multi-scale climate simulations will be presented and the distribution and climatic effects of volcanic ash in the atmosphere will be visualized using an augmented reality system. Other topics include JSC's involvement in the FENIX infra¬structure for the Human Brain Project, its cooperation with RWTH Aachen University in the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), and activities in the field of deep learning. In addition, HPC tools developed in-house, like LLview, SIONlib, JUBE, and Scalasca, will be demonstrated and JSC's support infrastructure will be presented. The DEEP projects will also be featured at the JSC booth.

As part of the conference programme, JSC employees will give a tutorial entitled “Application Porting and Optimization on GPU-Accelerated POWER Architectures”, present talks, and participate in numerous special interest group sessions and associated workshops. JSC staff will also be present at PRACE booth #2033. Detailed information can be found at
