Tracing the behavior of parallel applications on extreme-scale systemsJanuary 3, 2014

Event-tracing tools have proved vital for understanding how parallel applications behave. But new challenges make the use of event tracing on extreme-scale machines problematic. Tracing tools generate large amounts of data, which can overload the parallel file system and skew the application being studied. To remedy this problem, researchers from Argonne National Laboratory, the Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden in Germany, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have devised a new technique that enables event tracing on exascale systems.

New international partnership to prepare for emerging simulation platformsDecember 20, 2013

Argonne National Laboratory, in partnership with the public research institute for computational science Inria, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), has been named recipient of a $646,000 (including institution participation) grant from the Partner University Fund (PUF).

A wrong molecular turn leads down the path to type 2 diabetesDecember 20, 2013

Computing resources at Argonne have helped researchers better grasp how proteins misfold to create the tissue-damaging structures that lead to type 2 diabetes.
