Experiment-in-the-Loop Computing

Now in its fourth year, the Extreme-Scale Experiment-in-the-Loop Computing (XLOOP) workshop focuses on the intersection of HPC and large-scale experimental science. Chaired by Argonne’s Justin Wozniak and Nicholas Schwarz, the XLOOP workshop will feature papers and presentations detailing how advances in computing, including new AI data transfer methods, are helping to accelerate discoveries by integrating

Diversity in HPC

The Exascale Computing Project’s Broadening Participation Initiative is working to recruit and retain a diverse workforce by fostering a supportive and inclusive culture at DOE national labs. Argonne’s Jini Ramprakash and Lois Curfman McInnes are among the leaders discussing progress toward the goals of this multilab partnership.

Best Paper Finalists

Argonne researchers are contributing to papers that are up for the Best Paper Award at SC22. One of the studies presents a framework for mitigating silent data corruptions in HPC applications. The other Best Paper finalist details a scheme that uses compiler technologies to enable scalable automatic differentiation for a variety of parallel programming models.

ALCF AI Testbed

Comprised of systems from Cerebras, Graphcore, Groq, Habana, and SambaNova, the ALCF AI Testbed is a growing collection of some of the world’s most advanced AI machines available for open scientific research. At SC22, researchers from Argonne and AI companies will host a tutorial on programming these novel AI systems for scientific computing. They will


Argonne’ Susan Coghlan will provide an update on the status of the lab’s next-generation supercomputing resources, including the Aurora exascale system. Coghlan will also contribute to a session on the roadblocks and key learnings associated with adopting liquid cooling systems for large-scale supercomputers like Aurora.

ACM/IEEE Ken Kennedy Award to Ian Foster

Ian Foster, a Distinguished Fellow and director of Argonne’s Data Science and Learning Division, is being recognized for the establishment of new programming models and foundational science services. Foster, a pioneer in cloud and high-performance computing, was nominated for several influential projects for accelerating scientific discovery in fields ranging from physics and astronomy to climate

Gordon Bell Finalist

An Argonne-led team has been named a finalist for the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) Gordon Bell Special Prize for HPC-Based COVID-19 Research for their groundbreaking work to develop the first genome-scale language model (GenSLM) for understanding the evolutionary dynamics of SARS-CoV-2. Using AI and supercomputing resources, the researchers’ model has the potential to transform
