Dr. Sriram Krishnamoorthy will be a guest editor for a special issue of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, focusing on "Domain-Specific Languages and High-Level Frameworks for High-Performance Computing."
Submissions related to research on any aspect of domain-specific languages and high-level frameworks in the context of HPC, including frameworks applications, domain-specific languages and libraries, high-level data structures, high-level aspects of programming languages, or directive-based optimization approaches, are welcome.
Paper submissions will be accepted through Monday, July 15, 2013.
While women make up slightly more than half of the US workforce and half of the college-educated workforce, they are underrepresented in the nation's science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, jobs. To encourage more women to consider STEM careers, DOE built a webpage with articles about women who work in STEM areas for the Department, including the national labs. Several outstanding scientists from PNNL are featured, including Karin Rodland, Ruby Leung, Julia Laskin, Meredydd Evans, Alla Zelenyuk, and Kerstin Kleese van Dam.
To take advantage of enormous resources that next-generation super computers are expected to have, DOE researchers at PNNL designed a new put_notify capability that allows a process to initiate and complete data to another process without synchronization.
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Chavarría, a computer scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, on being selected to present at the 13th Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing. The conference has only a 22 percent acceptance rate, and Chavarría's paper was one of only 57 papers accepted.
Maria Vlachopoulou has been honored with a "New Face of Engineering" award by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The award highlights the vitality, diversity and rich contributions of engineers 30 or younger. Maria was recognized for her breakthrough research in computer algorithms and mathematical models supporting the transition of the U.S. power grid to a more secure, efficient, and robust system.
