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: Self-assembling nano inks form conductive and transparent grids during imprint

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.

To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...

Im Focus: The Glowing Brain

A new Fraunhofer MEVIS method conveys medical interrelationships quickly and intuitively with innovative visualization technology

On the monitor, a brain spins slowly and can be examined from every angle. Suddenly, some sections start glowing, first on the side and then the entire back of...

Im Focus: Newly discovered material property may lead to high temp superconductivity

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.

While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.

Im Focus: Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...

Im Focus: Continental tug-of-war - until the rope snaps

Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases

Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
