New and prospective users of Savio and other Berkeley Research Computing high performance computing (HPC) clusters (Cortex and Vector) are invited to attend an introductory training session on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. Topics will include a system overview and a review of basic cluster usage, such as logging in, accessing software, running jobs, and transferring files.

Theoretical chemists use Savio to build molecular computational models

Eric Neuscamman

“Well, I’m not safe near real chemicals,” says UC Berkeley Professor Eric Neuscamman, a theoretical chemist working to develop increasingly accurate and computationally cost-effective methods of modeling electron behavior in molecules. To inform chemists’ experimentation, theoretical chemists use supercomputers to solve complex mathematical equations, including the Schrödinger equation, that yield predictive models of what molecules will do in chemical reactions.

Research IT staff to attend “Broadening Participation in Viz” Conference

BPViz'16 website

Quinn Dombrowski, Digital Humanities Coordinator in Research IT, recently received a travel support award to attend the Broadening Participation in Visualization 2016 (BPViz’16) conference at Purdue University on August 3-4. The theme of the conference is "Bridging Science, Technology and the Arts through Visualization", and Quinn will present a poster based on Professor Rita Lucarelli’s 3D visualizations of ancient Egyptian coffins.
