SHPCP Board Members Lead Panels at Annual EAGE Conference in Madrid


SHPCP President Doug Norton led a panel titled ‘The Future of Computing in the Energy Industry’ as it expands into renewable energy technologies. He was joined by panelists Gabriel Guerra (Shell Research)Dmitriy Tishechkin (AWS)Nefeli Moridis, Ph.D. (NVIDIA),and Nicholas Borsotto Machado Monteiro (Lenovo) for a great discussion.

Perhaps the biggest take-away is we must innovate and leverage the powerful combination of HPC+AI to address the energy transition and ensure energy security.

8 June 2022


SHPCP Board member Kannan Venkataraman led a panel titled ‘Challenging Decision for O&G Data Management Departments’ on the balancing act between saving data that is useful and must be kept vs. what can be discarded. He was joined by panelists Mik Isernia (AWS), Emily O’Neill (Schlumberger), Guy Gueritz (NVIDIA), Jamie Cruise (Schlumberger), Jill Lewis (Troika International), and Bjørn Thorsen (RoQC Data Management).

One interesting example was on the value of what may be considered old and outdated information. A company agreed to transcribe some 40 year old seismic data for a customer from tape for free. It turns out some other companies were willing to pay $millions for this data, since a lot of it was in what are now exploration-moratorium areas, national parks, or scientifically sensitive areas. Armed with this data, they were allowed access to areas that would not allow a massive project but could allow a small focused one in areas this data showed were valuable.

AMD’s MI300 APUs to Power Exascale El Capitan Supercomputer

Additional details of the architecture of the exascale El Capitan supercomputer were disclosed today by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) Terri Quinn in a presentation delivered to the 79th HPC User Forum at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Quinn revealed that AMD’s forthcoming MI300 APU would be the computational bedrock of El Capitan, which is slated for installation at LLNL in late 2023.

From ISC: Thomas Sterling’s Keynote Celebrates Frontier and the Exascale Tour de Force

Frontier’s groundbreaking 1.102 exaflops Linpack run to capture the latest Top500 crown has officially started the exascale era. Sterling was delighted to echo the news. This was his 19th ISC keynote, a feat in its own right. Sterling is professor of intelligent systems engineering and director of the AI Computing Systems Laboratory at Indiana University. He is perhaps best known as the “father of Beowolf” cluster architecture.

DOE Announces $1.89M for US-Japan Cooperative Research in High Energy Physics

For over forty years, collaboration between U.S. and Japanese scientists has enabled progress in some of the most challenging areas in high energy physics. Working together, researchers have explored the universe at the smallest and largest scales, from the most elementary constituents of matter and energy to the nature of space and time. The long history of U.S.-Japan cooperation includes many significant milestones, such as the contributions by Japanese collaborators on the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider to the discovery of the top quark in 1995. High energy physics continues to play a major role in nurturing top scientific talent and building and sustaining the nation’s scientific workforce.

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.
