Symposiums for HPC in January in Tokyo

・ International Workshop for Peta-scale Application Development Support Environment

The 3rd Advanced Supercomputing Environment (ASE) meeting will be held as International workshop for peta-scale application development support environment on January 20, 2009 in the large conference room in Information Technology Center (ITC) of the University of Tokyo.

The invited speaker is Dr. Jonathan Carter (NERSC, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) who talks "Optimizing Scientific Applications for Multicore Architectures and T2K Open Supercomputer".

・ HPCS2009
High performance computing and computational science symposium 2009

This symposium will be held on January 22 - 23, 2009 in VLSI Design and Education Center (VDEC) of the University of Tokyo. A discounted registration fee is applied by January 15. In particular, students can register free of charge instead of 17,000 yen (normal registration fee).
The organizer must be generous-minded.

In the morning session for large-scale application, a presentation about Blue Gene/P , not so often in Japan,
"Optimization of the first principle molecular dynamics software PHASE in Blue Gene/P.", H. Imai and T. Moriyama (IBM Japan)
is scheduled.

Dr. Dr. Jonathan Carter (NERSC) will deliver the keynote address:
"Optimizing Scientific Applications for Multicore Architectures" in the second day.

The final session will be focused on GPU. The best paper award of the symposium、"Speed-up by CUDA of the singular value decomposition for the square matrix", T. Fukaya, Y. Yamamoto (Nagoya University), T. Uneyama, Y. Nakamura (Kyoto University) will be presented in this session. This may imply that large interest and expectation about accelerator is growing in Japan, too.
