Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften

This year, the NHR Alliance was represented at the LNDW at the Zuse Institute Berlin. The event was very well attended and the interest in projects in the field of high performance computing was overwhelming. Until late at night, visitors could take part in guided tours to the supercomputer and experience the diverse projects at interactive stations.

Summer School 2023

An interesting and intensive program week has come to an end. Our fellows traveled nationwide from all NHR centers and were welcomed in Paderborn by Christian Plessl, the director of the Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing. The program week focused on different HPC workshops. In addition, all participants had the opportunity to present their projects to each other and to get to know each other and connect during various additional activities.

NHR@FAU student team wins SC22 student cluster competition in Dallas, TX

We are pleased that the team of six undergraduate students from Computer Science and Computational Engineering took first place in the HPCG category with a performance of 1.97 Tflop/s. The students were asked to assemble, install and administer an HPC system and run a selection of high-performance applications as fast as possible under a strict performance constraint. They chose a single node from our "Alex" cluster (an AMD-based host with eight NVIDIA A100 GPUs). The competition simulates common operations and challenges in an HPC data center, with students taking on the role of both data center operator and user.
