Pats on the Back:

  • Hartmut Kaiser, Jeffrey Clayton, Maciej Brodowicz, and Juhan Frank received an award from NSF titled "INSPIRE: STAR: Scalable toolkit for Transformative Astrophysics Research." The award is for $799,682 for five years.
  • Frank Loffler, Erik Schnetter, Steve Brandt, and Peter Diener received an award from NSF titled "Collaborative Research: The Einstein Toolkit -- an open-source GR multi-physics infrastructure for relativistic astrophysics." The award is for $163,332 for three years.
  • Jorge Pullin organized and chaired a session on quantum gravity at the 13th Marcel Grossmann Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Please Note:

  • The LSU Center for Computation & Technology will host the LSU iOS App Boot Camp for its second year, July 30-August 10, 2012, (10 day camp; not including weekends), on the LSU Campus. NOW OPEN TO EVERYONE! This educational experience will offer LSU undergraduate students the opportunity to gain knowledge while enhancing their entrepreneurial spirit. Participants will work in groups to create their own functional iOS app and have it loaded on their personal device by end of camp.  Post-camp programs to expand and hone new skills will also be available. Registration and more information can be found at:   https://www.cct.lsu.edu/ios-abc
  • The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) is excited to announce Summer School courses for 2012. The VSCSE provides courses and learning resources to help computational science students use emerging petascale computing resources to address real domain science problems. The summer courses for 2012 are:
  • Science Cloud Summer School (July 30 - August 3, 2012)--**located at LSU CCT
  • Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Many-core Processors (August 13 - 17, 2012)

These courses will be delivered to a number of sites nationwide using high definition video conferencing technologies, allowing students to travel to a number of convenient locations where they will be able to work with a cohort of fellow computational scientists, have access to local experts and interact virtually with course instructors. Registration fees for these courses are $100* and help the host sites offset their hospitality and facility costs.

Please visit http://www.vscse.org/summerschool/2012/ for more information and the full site list or http://hub.vscse.org to register today!
