Georgia Tech's Parallel Computing Research Leads at SIAM PP18

Primary tabs

Georgia Tech’s latest parallel computing research is being presented at the SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing (SIAM PP18), at Waseda University in Tokyo this week, March 7-10. School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Associate Professor Rich Vuduc is serving as the current chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing, which is co-sponsoring the SIAM PP conference alongside the Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics this year. A large number of CSE faculty members and Ph.D. students have research accepted for this year’s program and will be presenting during the week’s meetings. Of the 17 research presentations from Georgia Tech at the conference, 13 include presentations and work by CSE researchers. Parallel computing allows for larger problems to be divided into smaller ones, which then can be solved simultaneously. This type of computation is inherent to high-performance computing (HPC), but is gaining more notice in other areas of computing research because they are increasingly able to take advantage of frequency scaling, a computer architecture technique used to conserve power and reduce heat generated by the chip. "Parallel processing continues to have an increasingly big impact on physical simulation, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. The talks by Georgia Tech researchers reflect this with their particular focus on how to fundamentally advance the algorithms, data structures, and numerical methods underlying these domains,” said Vuduc. Some of the themes emerging in this year’s work from Georgia Tech researchers demonstrate a range of parallel processing abilities and applications that stem from four main areas: data and HPC, novel systems, algorithms and libraries, and large-scale simulations.
