PSC @ Supercomputing 2023
November 12-17 | Denver, CO
PSC is excited to be in Denver for SC23. Our booth will feature interactive demonstrations highlighting how PSC is leveraging HPC to accelerate research.
PSC has been part of the national HPC community for nearly four decades, and we are proud to continue our tradition this year of building relationships, fostering community, and of course, geeking out about research!
Unwind at our Backyard Party!
Join us on Wednesday, November 15 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm in our booth #1203 on the exhibit floor to relax, enjoy a drink, and network with your favorite colleagues.
Research on tap
Come and visit with us in Booth 1203! We’re always delighted to see you and we’d love to share what we’ve been up to since we last met. We do have some special events planned, so be sure to mark your calendars and join us!
Ecosystem for Research Networking
Monday Nov. 13, 7:30 pm
Tuesday Nov. 14, 10:15 am & 3:00 pm
Wednesday Nov. 15, 10:15 am & 3:00 pm
Thursday Nov. 16, 10:15 am
The Ecosystem for Research Networking (ERN) is designing and implementing a prototype open source, edge computing platform to democratize access to scientific research instruments, provide networking research computing resources, handle massive data sets produced by research instruments, support computational and storage infrastructure, and more. The conclusion will be a web-based portal leveraging federated access to the instrument, workflows utilizing edge computing in conjunction with cloud computing and real-time monitoring for experimental parameter adjustments and decisions. The intention is to foster team science and scientific innovation, with emphasis on under-represented and under-resourced institutions, through the democratization of these scientific instruments.
This presentation will discuss the project’s current democratized CryoEM remote instrument, federated access design, and implementation efforts. This will include a live demonstration of an experiment workflow utilizing a transmission electron microscope (TEM) located at the Rutgers CryoEM and Nanoimaging Center (RCNF) through a FABRIC node cloudlet with edge computing and extended analysis using Bridges-2.
Meet our partners at Cerebras
Tuesday Nov. 14th 2:00 – 2:45 pm
Wednesday Nov. 15th 2:00 – 2:45 pm
On Tuesday and Wednesday November 14th and 15th, stop by our booth for a meet-and-greet informational session with our partners at Cerebras, who will be talking about PSC’s Neocortex machine for HPC research and machine learning. In addition, they’ll discuss scientific computing research on the world’s largest chip and their SDK-built Gordon Bell Finalist research.
Join us Tuesday and Wednesday from 2:00 – 2:45 pm to learn how you can develop kernels and deliver scientific computing research using the Cerebras SDK on Neocortex.
Storm Surge Forecasting
PSC is working with The Water Institute of the Gulf on hurricane forecasting. We’ve configured Bridges-2 to allow their researchers to run hurricane forecasting models in real time. The data from these forecasts have been used by decision-makers in the region for recent storms such as Hurricane Ian.
PSC software engineers are also collaborating with researchers at The Water Institute and staff at RENCI to build FloodID, an online platform for displaying hurricane forecasts and related model results. FloodID is designed to provide emergency managers, political leaders, and scientists with access to critical data they need to make life-saving decisions.
