High Performance Computing User Group meeting coming to AFIT

The Air Force Research Laboratory’s DoD Supercomputing Resource Center is installing its newest supercomputer called ‘Mustang’ in honor of the U.S. Air Force’s P-51 Mustang aircraft. The system from Hewlett Packard Enterprise has 56,448 compute cores, providing a large increase in computing power with 4.87 PetaFLOPS (quadrillion (1015) floating point operations per second). It will have 244 terabytes of memory and 9.281 petabytes of storage. The system is expected to be ready for users later this fall. (U.S. Air Force illustration)

The U.S. Air Force will host a Department of Defense-wide High Performance Computing (HPC) User Group Meeting at the Air Force Institute of Technology Sept. 24-28.

The meeting will focus on how supercomputing advances science, technology, testing and evaluation, and acquisition engineering, and especially how supercomputing impacts critical mission objectives across the DoD spectrum.

Sponsored by the Research Collaboration and Computing Directorate at the Air Force Research Laboratory, the meeting is free and open to all federal government employees and their contractors. The meeting is geared to people interested in knowing how to exploit HPC in their research and promises technical papers, training, tool overviews and workshops for digital and acquisition engineering.

The comprehensive services provided by the DoD’s HPC Modernization Program have been a game-changer for many researchers and engineers during the last 25 years.

Registration is open until Aug. 31 at https://www.afrl.hpc.mil/DoDHPCUserMeeting/.

Topics will include:

• High-fidelity hypersonics CFD research bridges into big data analytics;

• Computational materials science and engineering/computational electromagnetics;

• New penetrating weapon simulation technologies for effective design and operational support;

• Advanced semiconductor device modeling;

• Visualization and data analytics;

• Investigation on the origin of 1/f noise in electronics;

• Modeling of hypersonic nonequilibrium flows.

The meeting’s plenary session will feature Dr. Leo Kempel, a member of the U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board and dean of the College of Engineering at Michigan State University; and Dr. Glen Sjoden, chief scientist, Air Force Technical Applications Center.

There will be more than 60 other presentations, training and workshop sessions, as well as opportunities to connect with colleagues.
