ISAV 2016: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

This workshop is held in conjunction with SC16 and is chaired by Wes Bethel, Senior Computer Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Intelligent Light's Earl Duque, PhD. serves on the organizing committee and both he and I are members of the program committee for the full day event.  The workshop features a series of short papers, presentations and discussions.  

Workshop Theme: 

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings, where data is analyzed/visualized while being generated without first storing to a file system. Second, the potential for increased accuracy, where fine temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex behavior missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third, the ability to use all available resources, CPUs and accelerators, in the computation of analysis products.

The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government laboratories developing, applying, and deploying in situ methods in extreme scale, high performance computing. The goal is to present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related to developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across a range of science and engineering applications in HPC environments; to discuss topics like opportunities presented by new architectures, existing infrastructure needs, requirements, and gaps, and experiences to foster and enable in situ analysis and visualization; to serve as a "center of gravity" for researchers, practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and infrastructure in the HPC space.

I am a co-author on this paper to be presented during the workshop, which describes a common interface that can be used to instrument simulations with multiple in situ infrastructures, including Libsim:

The SENSEI Generic In Situ Interface

Special Presentation @ SC16: Extract-Based CFD Workflows Reduce Bottlenecks & Cost

Steve Legensky, Intelligent Light's Founder & General Manager has been invited to present during a special Workflow Session of the SC16 Exhibitor Forum.

Extract-Based CFD Workflows Reduce Bottlenecks and Cost
Tuesday, November 15th, 4-4:30pm 155-E

Business and engineering leaders are eager to utilize High Performance Computing (HPC) to accelerate engineering while reducing design risk. Higher core counts provide faster turnaround and the ability to perform many design evaluations. However, two issues can block success from HPC: software costs and data bottlenecks.

Intelligent Light, makers of FieldView, the premier post-processing and workflow tool for CFD, are helping customers to address both of these issues by building upon DOE's VisIt, the premier visualization tool for ultrascale systems. Our VisIt Prime gives users a robust, reliable and fully supported software release backed by Intelligent Light's first class global support team. There is no per core or per user license cost for this product.

Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC

Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC

Software company helps manufacturer grow business, add jobs as result of HPC success

Rutherford, NJ, November 20, 2012 - Intelligent Light has been recognized by International Data Corporation (IDC) with their HPC Innovation Excellence Award, presented at the SC12 supercomputing industry conference.  IDC acknowledged the impact of the company’s work to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workflows through the study of bicycle racing wheel aerodynamics.

The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing (HPC) technologies.  The program's main goals are to showcase return on investment (ROI) and scientific success stories involving HPC; to help other users better understand the benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments, especially for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs); to demonstrate the value of HPC to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for increased HPC investments.

Advances in CFD code development recognized in NCSA Access Magazine

Intelligent Light's Applied Research Group has completed a 5-year CFD research projectfor the US Army's Vertical Lift Center of Excellence.

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) highlighted the work in their Access magazine. The project included the use of coupled Eulerian and vortex particle method codes to achieve the accuracy required to model the rotor and wake interactions. The vortex particle methods are computationally expensive and benefitted from HPC systems with GPU accelerators, a first for rotorcraft CFD code development. Read the full story.
