HLRS @ ISC'12 (June 17-21)
HLRS once again participated in the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’12) which took place in Hamburg/Germany on June 17-21.
As one of the three members of the national Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), HLRS contributed to the event with well received presentations and workshops, hosted by Prof. Michael M. Resch (Director HLRS) and Dr. Stefan Wesner (Managing Director, HLRS). Additionally, HLRS enriched the well-received GCS exhibition booth with interactive 3D visualizations of simulation results on a two by two tiled display wall. Applications ranged from weather and combustion simulations to interactive simulations of water power plants. Highlight of the HLRS showcase at ISC’12 was the visualization of a pumped hydro power station showing large scale terrain rendering combined with visualization of the power house and the actual water turbine/pump and the visualization of water flow through the draft tube of that turbine.
The ISC is an annually recurring global conference and exhibition for HPC, networking and storage. This year, in its 27th year of existence, it attracted some 2,300 like-minded HPC researchers, technology leaders, scientists and IT-decision makers who came together in Hamburg to find solutions for HPC challenges.
