Israeli Student Wins Spot in PRACE Summer of HPC Program

June 24th, 2013

We are proud to announce that a young student from the geophysics department at Tel Aviv University won a coveted spot in the Summer of HPC Program run by PRACE. Moti Butrashvily will spend the best part of the summer of 2013 in Copenhagen, working on the project “Accelerate routines within the CCSM4 project using GP-GPU” at the Niels Bohr Institutet at the University of Copenhagen (UCHP). 

The proposed project is to use GP-GPU in order to answer the increasing computational demand of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) model. The CESM is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth’s past, present, and future climate states. In order to improve the simulations, the resolution and complexity of the model are constantly increased, which in turn increases the computational demand of the model.

Moti will join the team that is analyzing CCSM4 and identifying functions that may benefit from GP-GPU execution and then port these functions to GP-GPU.

Moti was especially pleased to be selected to this project since it is relevant to his work as a M.Sc. student in geophysics from both a technical and scientific perspective.

The team will be posting updates on their work on the Summer of HPC blog and Facebook page, and IUCC hopes to report on his progress as well.
