International Supercomputing Conference, Dresden, Germany

ISC has evolved into a high-powered international conference and exhibition that gives its attendees a global perspective on the cutting edge of HPC. As always, our conference program tackles hot HPC topics; this year, for example, we will have a panel session on “Green Computing”, a topic that was almost unknown just two years ago. ISC’s focus on future trends and developments can also be seen in this year’s keynote presentation by Prof. Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, who will discuss “Everybody Supercomputes in the Next Generation Cyber-Science Infrastructure”.
I look forward to seeing you in Dresden.

GOLEM - Grid On computationaL Electro-Magnetics

The goal of this project is to produce a Beowulf claster of modular computational infrastructute especially designed for Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) . Initially in GOLEM we would like simply a cluster skeleton which could be applied to any preexisting computational code with a minimum effort. Making sure that the code is as portable as possible will hopefully increase the usefulness of the package. Beowulf Cluster widely-used term meaning independent computers combined into a unified system through software and networking based on commodity hardware, on a private system network. One of the main goals of GOLEM project is Design of the advanced PC cluster of Beowulf type and its integration with local and European Grid Network for solving of large system of linear equations by direct (sparse matrices solvers) and iterative methods. The infrastructure will support industry and also other research projects.
