A second city in the Second City June 1, 2014

Argonne is helping Chicago city planners design a new community on the site of an old U.S. steel plant. Models can help designers get a handle on the enormous complexities of travel and transit, electricity and energy use, and infrastructure, for example.

The Volcano of a Hundred Thousand MouthsJune 1, 2014

Tiny carbon particles could play a larger role in climate change than we thought.

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.

MCS researcher presents tutorial on scientific visualization of flow field dataNovember 5, 2013

Flow visualization has long been an area of research, but the rapidly increasing size and complexity of flow field data have raised many new challenges.

To address these challenges, Tom Peterka, an assistant computer scientist in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division, and his colleagues from four universities, presented a half-day tutorial October 13 at IEEE VIS 2013 — the premier forum for advances in scientific and information visualization.

The tutorial, "State-of-the-Art Flow Field Analysis and Visualization,"' covered five topics:

Researchers win best paper and best poster awards at LDAV 2013 November 5, 2013

Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory, together with several university colleagues, received awards at the 2013 IEEE Symposium on Large-Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) held in Atlanta, Georgia, October 13-14.

Exploring the dark universe at the speed of petaflopsSeptember 13, 2013

An astonishing 95% of our universe is made of up dark energy and dark matter. Understanding the physics of this sector is the foremost challenge in cosmology today. Sophisticated simulations of the evolution of the universe play a crucial role.
