San Diego Supercomputer Center Receives Honors in 2022 HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards

Newswise — The San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California San Diego has been recognized in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards, presented at the 2022 International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis ( SC22), Dallas, Texas. The list of winners was revealed at the SC22 HPCwire booth, as well as on the HPCwire website.

SDSC has received the following honors:

  • Student Choice Award for Best Use Case of HPC in the Cloud

    The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a large-scale collaboration involving the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, uses Google Cloud, Google Kubernetes Engine, and GPU sharing between Nvidia GPUs at Google Kubernetes Engine to extend the Open Science Grid to facilitate discovery. neutrinos at the South Pole. Sharing has increased performance by 40%.

  • Student Scholarship Award for Advanced Use of HPC

    A graduate student at UC San Diego, working with an international research team, used the Comet system at the San Diego Supercomputer Center to test methane storage applications. They advocated the use of computational chemistry as a tool to design new porous carbon materials for methane storage applications – a key bridging technology to low-carbon automotive fuels.

  • Editors’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in Response to Public Issues (Emergency Computing, COVID-19)

    Researchers at the University of California Riverside (UCR), using the enormous power of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), are investigating ways to remove non-biodegradable “permanent chemicals” such as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) from drinking water. The research relies on SDSC’s Comet supercomputer, a 2.76-peak petaflops system, supplied by Dell.

  • Editors’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in Response to Public Issues (Emergency Computing, COVID-19)

    Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center and UC San Diego, in collaboration with San Diego County’s Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA), have developed computer tools to plan for safe school operations in the wake of COVID. A geographically assisted agent-based model of COVID-19 Transmission (GeoACT) was developed for use on the Comet and Expanse mainframes (both built by Dell).

  • Editors’ Choice Award for Best Use of HPC in the Physical Sciences

    Simulations by Purdue University researchers with XSEDE systems at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, San Diego Supercomputer Center, and Texas Advanced Computing Center reproduced sound waves to control heat and pressure in fluid flow. The scientists used Bridges-2 at PSC (built by HPE), then Comet at SDSC and Stampede2 at TACC (both Dell systems), to build and run massive simulations.
