High Performance Computing in the Cloud: Chinese-German Symposium

17.10.2012
The Hasso Plattner Institute will be holding a Chinese-German workshop on the practical applications of cloud computing and high performance computing from the 22nd to the 25th of October.
Approximately 30 researchers from both countries will be dealing with the challenges that address the user’s wish for a more secure, efficient and comfortable provision of the required services. A precursor event has already taken place, held last fall in Shanghai (China).

"Among other topics, we would like to discuss with our Chinese colleagues how energy consumption can be reduced in the context of environmental protection," said HPI director Prof. Christoph Meinel. He is leading the workshop together with Prof. Wu Zhang from Shanghai University. According to Meinel, data protection issues and the security of infrastructure and services will also be addressed by the participants.

On the last day of the workshop the scientists are joining in a celebration marking the tenth anniversary of the teleteaching project between Germany and China. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle is also attending the ceremony to pay tribute to the “Internet Bridge” that exists between Potsdam and Beijing.

At the workshop, 15 German scientists from Aachen, Bayreuth, Berlin, Chemnitz, Cottbus, Dresden, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Paderborn and Potsdam will present their research results. On the Chinese side, 15 professors from universities in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Wuhan Hangzhou and Hefei will be speaking.

The Hasso Plattner Institute at the University of Potsdam is organizing the event together with the High Performance Computing Center and the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai University. The event is being sponsored by the Chinese-German Center for Research Promotion (CDZ), which is a joint venture foundation of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).

Im Focus: The most accurate optical single-ion clock worldwide

Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

Im Focus: Goodbye ground control: autonomous nanosatellites

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Im Focus: Flow phenomena on solid surfaces: Physicists highlight key role played by boundary layer velocity

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.

The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
