Watch Dr. Foster's acceptance speech (begins ~3 minutes into video)

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) named five National Laboratory scientists as DOE Office of Science Distinguished Scientists Fellows. The newly established award, authorized by the America COMPETES Act and bestowed on National Laboratory scientists with outstanding records of achievement, provides each Fellow with $1 million over three years to be devoted to a project or projects of the Fellow’s choosing.

A conversation with Argonne's Katrin Heitmann

Globus recently saw the biggest single file transfer in our history: a team led by Argonne National Laboratory scientists moved 2.9 petabytes of data on the Summit system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, as part of a research project involving three of the largest cosmological simulations known to date

We sat down with Dr. Katrin Heitmann, Argonne physicist and computational scientist and the lead researcher on this project, to get details on the project and why she uses Globus.

The Bio-IT World Conference & Expo recently hosted the third annual Bio-IT FAIR Data Hackathon, giving experts in life sciences and IT the opportunity to FAIR-ify a range of existing data sets. Eight teams of researchers spent two days using unique identifiers, linking additional data sets, and collecting appropriate metadata, all the while adhering to the principles of FAIR—Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable—data.

Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) are coming to HPC. Already employed in some services-oriented infrastructures, for example, Argonne Scholar Ryan Chard and collaborators are pioneering their introduction into HPC. From use of Singularity and Globus, this is an HPC-centric introduction indeed.

In this video from Singularity User Group, Ryan Chard from Globus at Argonne National Lab discusses "FuncX: A Function Serving Platform for HPC":
