Learn how to use the NSFCloud! All researchers who have computational and big data analytic needs are encouraged to attend! The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is one of five institutions nationwide partnering on a $10 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to create a cloud- computing testbed that will let researchers develop and experiment with new cloud architectures and applications. The NSFCloud project will support the design, deployment and initial operation of Chameleon, a large-scale testbed consisting…

Jon Weissman, Ph. D. Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Cloud computing is evolving from the centralized data-center to a more widely distributed collection of data-centers and even to the use of edge devices, so-called Fog Computing. This evolution of clouds is driven by the proliferation of dispersed data, user-facing latency-sensitive applications, and the availability, and the availability of powerful edge devices. We term this new frontier of cloud computing, Geo-Distributed Clouds, and discuss our…

Ken Beirman N. Rama Rao Professor of Computer Science Cornell University My group is working with a consortium of bulk electric power transmission operators for the Northeastern US on a cloud-based “smart grid” infrastructure. Our long goal is to use the cloud to host machine-learning and optimization technologies, but before this can be done, the scale of the problem forces us to think about how one can build a cloud-scale solution secure enough to support a nationally critical resource, strongly…

Anne Elster Professor of High Performance Computing Norwegian University of Science Current cloud infrastructures are mostly homogeneous, centrally managed and made available to the end users through the three standard delivery models: IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. As systems of different types are added to the growing cloud infrastructure in order to maximize performance and power efficiency, heterogeneous cloud are being created. However, exploiting different architectures poses significant challenges. To efficiently access heterogeneous resources and, at the same time, to exploit…

Distinguished Speaker Series – HPC and Biophysics: Is Analytical Ultracentrifugation Data Suitable for GPUs?

Borries Demeler PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Biochemistry at UT Health Science Center San Antonio In this seminar I will provide an overview of the biophysical technique of analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC). This technique is widely used for the solution study of biopolymers and other molecules in the nanoscale. Data resulting from this technique is analyzed with a series of algorithms that involve finite element simulations, non-negative least squares grid searches, as well as Monte Carlo and genetic algorithm optimization. Data…
