Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the sixth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 21-26, 2015, in Toronto, Canada.
Dan Reed, Vice President for Research and Economic Development, will present on Beowulf Clusters: From Research Curiosity to Exascale. The presentation will be on January 22nd, 2015 from 1:00-2:15PM in 2520D UCC.
Implementation of two-factor authentication for the HPC clusters is currently scheduled for January 6th, 2015. The planned technology is Duo, the same phone based technology that is currently used on the University of Iowa HR Self Service site. This change will significantly improve system security but will mean login times will take a bit more time. A pilot is ongoing for this technology.
Rivers are everywhere in Iowa. A network of 3 million water pathways negotiates the state’s landscape, with a half million of them carrying water at any given time.
Many of those waterways come in the form of streams that are small, unnamed, and harmless … most of the time. But when the conditions are right, they can go from tame to troublesome in a hurry.
Urban air pollution is a major concern for Santiago, Chile, home to nearly 6 million people. The city lies in a basin surrounded by the Andes Mountains, and vehicle and industrial emissions tend to linger – especially in May June, and July when weather conditions make the air more stagnant.
University of Iowa neuroscientists are using high-performance computing (HPC) to study changes in the brains of Huntington disease (HD) patients before they begin to experience symptoms.
