researchers from Argonne, Intel Labs, and RIKEN (Japan) have now developed “Casper,” a process-based asynchronous progress model that dramatically improves the computational efficiency of NWChem for water cluster simulations.
Scientists and engineers increasingly demand the ability to analyze data from experimental facilities in real time. This project investigates the question "Will exascale computers run anticipated experimental science workloads effectively? "
Researchers at Argonne will be testing the limits of computing horsepower this year with a new simulation project from the Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative that will harness 60 million computer core hours to dispel uncertainties and pave the way to more effective engine simulations.
Argonne National Laboratory hosted a summer coding camp with 42 students from Chicago-area high schools. Four days of lessons covered an introduction to the Python programming language, emphasized problem-solving skills and showed students what it’s like to be a STEM professional.
