Subject: HPC Challenge Awards at SC08

HPC Challenge Awards at SC08

The DARPA High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS) Program and IDC are
pleased to announce the annual HPC Challenge Award Competition
( The goal of the competition is to focus the HPC
community's attention on developing a broad set of HPC hardware and HPC
software capabilities that are necessary to productively use HPC systems.
The awards session will be held during the SC08 conference.
The core of the HPC Challenge Award Competition is the HPC Challenge
benchmark suite developed at the University of Tennessee under the DARPA
HPCS program with input from a wide range of organizations from around the
world (see
The Competition will focus on four of the most challenging benchmarks in the
Global HPL
Global RandomAccess
EP STREAM (Triad) per system
Global FFT
For the HPCC Awards there will be two classes of awards.
Class 1: Best Performance (4 awards - $750 each)
Best performance on a base or optimized run submitted to the HPC Challenge
website. The benchmarks to be judged are: Global HPL, Global RandomAccess,
EP STREAM (Triad) per system and Global FFT. The prize will be $750 plus a
certificate for the best of each.
Class 2: Most Productivity (1 award - $2000 may be split)
Most "elegant" implementation of four or more of the HPC Challenge
benchmarks with special emphasis being placed on: Global HPL, Global
RandomAccess, EP STREAM (Triad) per system and Global FFT. This award would
be weighted 50% on performance and 50% on code elegance, clarity, and size.
Both will be determined by an evaluation committee. For this award, the
implementer must submit to hpcc-awards (by October 24th, 2008) a
short description of:
the implementation,
the performance achieved,
lines-of-code, and
the actual source code of their implementation.
The evaluation committee will select a set of finalists who will be invited
to give a short presentation at the HPC Challenge Award BOF at SC08.

The HPC Challenge Benchmark is supported by DARPA, DOE, NSF, and IDC.

Subject: Announcing the Intel Adaptive Spike-Based Solver

The Intel Adaptive Spike-Based Solver is a poly-algorithm that uses many
different strategies to solve large banded systems in parallel. It uses
a novel decomposition method to balance computation against
communication requirements. Since the characteristics of the input
matrix (e.g., size, bandwidth, degree of diagonal dominance, degree of
sparsity, number of available processors, etc.) affect the solution
strategy, the solver contains an adaptive layer to automatically select
the optimum strategy at runtime. The solver is parallelized with MPI to
take advantage of high-performance computing (HPC) clusters and other
parallel architectures.

Solving banded linear systems plays a critical role in many
applications. Banded systems frequently arise from reordering sparse
matrices. In other instances, they are constructed as effective
preconditioners to general sparse systems where they are solved via
iterative methods. Existing parallel software using direct methods for
banded matrices are mostly based on LU factorization. The Intel Adaptive
Spike-Based Solver is based on a different decomposition method that
balances communication overhead with arithmetic cost to achieve better
scalability than other methods. The Intel Adaptive Spike-Based Solver
offers HPC users a new and valuable tool for solving large banded

The software can be downloaded from the following website:

* Superior performance over LU factorization
* Solution strategy adapts to matrix characteristics
* Parallel and scalable
* Fortran 90 and C compatibility
* Supports several compilers and MPI implementations

The Intel Adaptive Spike-Based Solver is a collaborative effort of
Purdue University, the University of Massachusetts, and Intel

Subject: New book, Wavelets, Their Friends and What They Can Do For You

"Wavelets, Their Friends and What They Can Do For You"
by Martin J. Mohlenkamp and Maria Cristina Pereyra.
European Mathematical Society, Series of Lectures in
Mathematics (2008).

So what is all the fuss about wavelets?
You can find out by reading these notes. They will introduce
you to the central concepts surrounding wavelets and their
applications. By focusing on the essential ideas and
arguments, they enable you to get to the heart of the matter
as quickly as possible. They then point you to the appropriate
places in the literature for detailed proofs and real applications,
so you can continue your study.

They begin with the notion of time-frequency analysis, present
the multi-resolution analysis and basic wavelet construction,
introduce you to the many friends, relatives and mutations of
wavelets, and finally give a selection of applications.

They are suitable for beginning graduates students and above.
A preliminary chapter containing some of the prerequisite concepts
and definitions is included for reference.

Second International Conference on
Scale Space and Variational Methods
in Computer Vision
Voss, Norway
June 1 - June 5, 2009

This international conference is a result of merging the Scale Space
conferences and the Variational Level Set Methods conference and is the
second in the series. The conference attempts to bring together two
different communities with joint research interests: the one on scale space
analysis and the one on variational, geometric and level set methods and
their applications in image interpretation and understanding. Such a
conference serves several purposes: International researchers and
students may be exposed to state-of-the-art research on mathematical,
physical and computational aspects of imaging, computer vision, graphics
and inverse problems with applications.

This conference covers areas that include computer vision, image
processing and analysis, signal processing, mathematical imaging and
numerical analysis. Industrial applications related to medical imaging,
visualization, scientific computing and inverse problems are all suited
for this conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Voss, Norway, in June 2009.

Subject: Postdoctoral postion with the OOF project at NIST

A postdoctoral position is available in the OOF project at the
National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD.
OOF is a computational platform for solving physics problems on
materials with complex microstructures, using real microstructural
geometries (from micrographs) as the starting points for creating
finite element meshes. It currently solves linear elasticity and
other structurally similar problems (e.g., thermal diffusion and
piezoelectricity) in two dimensions. OOF is designed to be a
user-friendly general purpose platform to which users, who are not
expert computational scientists, can add their own physics models.
The OOF development team (currently consisting of 2.5 people) is
extending the program to handle three dimensions and time-dependent
and non-linear physics.

A candidate for the position should have a strong object-oriented
programming background, preferably in C++ and/or Python. Experience
in parallel programming, numerical methods, materials physics
(especially fracture and plasticity), or image analysis will be
beneficial. Because the focus of the position will be collaborative
software development, all applicants are asked to send samples of code
that they have written. The programming language and topic aren't
important, but the code should be indicative of the candidate's
programming skills.
