Since August 1998, the University of Paderborn has been training IT specialists in system integration. The Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC2) celebrated this anniversary by organizing a reunion of the program’s graduates, and the invitation was accepted by 13 of the 16 former and current students. At 38 percent, the share of women who have completed the PC² program is well above the 2016 national German average of 7.9 percent.
Within the last decade the research field of Optoelectronics and Photonics has emerged as an active and successful focal area at the Paderborn University. Some highlights investigated are novel light diodes & lasers, ultrafast digital communication via fibers, integrated optical circuits, biological photonic structures, concepts for optical quantum computers, optical sensors, antennae for light, metamaterials, and holograms from ultrathin layers.…
We are participating at ISC 2018 in Frankfurt, which is the largest European conference and trade show on High-Performance Computing. You can meet us at the Gauss-Allianz booth (M-230) on Tuesday from 10:00-11:00.
Our Submission “A Massively Parallel Algorithm for the Approximate Calculation of Inverse p-th Roots of Large Sparse Matrices” has been accepted for publication at the Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) conference, taking place in July 2018 in Basel, Switzerland.
Paderborn University announced today that it has selected a Cray® CS500™ cluster system as its next-generation supercomputer. This procurement is the first phase of the Noctua project in which a multi-petaflop-system with a total budget of 10M euros will be commissioned until 2022. The initial high-performance computing (HPC) system provides academic researchers from Paderborn University and nationwide with computing resources primarily for…
Our article "A General Algorithm to Calculate the Inverse Principal p-th Root of Symmetric Positive Definite Matrices has been accepted for publication in the Communications in Computational Physics (CICP). This article is a joint work by the research groups of three PC² board members from the Departments of Chemistry, Computer Science and Mathematics.
Recently, a network of several German institutions from science and industry started the HPC project HighPerMeshes to tackle challenges associated with the efficient implementation of algorithms working on unstructured grids on heterogeneous processor architectures. At the kick-off meeting in April, organized by the Paderborn University, the status-quo of the relevant algorithms, the technological aspects and the requirements from the industrial…
Following the recommendation by the German Council for Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat), the Joint Science Conference (Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz, GWK) has decided on June 23 to approve funding for a new high-performance computer at Paderborn University.
We are participating at ISC 2017 in Frankfurt, which is the largest European conference and trade show on High-Performance Computing. You can meet us on Wednesday in the exhibition hall at the HiPEAC booth (A-1430) from 10:00-13:30 and at the Gauss-Allianz boot from 16:00-18:00.
The protection of computer systems and the information they store have gained massive importance in our modern society. Over the last years, we have worked in the area of hardware accelerated cryptographic attacks. In particular, we have studied how so-called Cold-Boot Attacks can be accelerated with the help of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The full source code of our work is now available online.
