International Supercomputing Conference ISC: Hans Meuer Award for Researchers at Jülich Supercomputing Centre and IBM
Frankfurt, Jülich, Böblingen, 9 July 2015 – Jülich scientists and experts from IBM are the recipients of this year’s Hans Meuer Award, which is bestowed for the first time by the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) taking place next week. The scientists will receive the award worth € 3,000 in recognition of their scientific supercomputer calculations on Active Memory Cubes (AMCs). This concept uses three-dimensional memory technologies which decrease a system’s energy consumption and thus present an approach for high-performance computers of the future, for example in the exascale range. The results obtained with precise simulations show the great potential of this pioneering technology.
