Supercomputing - overview

The activities of the Supercomputing PIC span multiple aspects of supercomputing:

  • design and building of supercomputers
  • design of systems software, libraries, and programming models
  • design and tuning of supercomputing applications
  • performance evaluation, performance modeling, benchmarking.
The focus of the PIC has been to advance science and engineering through high-performance computing on massively-parallel systems. Today in addition to traditional scientific computing arena such as computational fluid dynamics as quantum mechanics, SCPIC is becoming increasingly active in research related to big-data applications and analytics.
