A new work based on 3-D supercomputer simulations of earthquake data has found hidden rock structures deep under East Asia. Researchers used seismic data from 227 East Asia earthquakes during 2007-2011, which they used to image depths to about 900 kilometers, or about 560 miles below ground. Notable structures include a high velocity colossus beneath the Tibetan plateau, and a deep mantle upwelling beneath the Hangai Dome in Mongolia.

Moore’s Law recently turned 50 years old, and many have used the milestone to tout its virtues, highlight positive results that stem from it, as well as advance suggestions on what the future dividends will be and boldly project the date for its inevitable demise. Moore’s Law is an observation that has undoubtedly inspired us to innovate to the pace it predicts. It has challenged us to do so. Therefore, I think of it as Moore’s drumbeat.
A new initiative designed to advance how scientists digitally reconstruct and analyze individual neurons in the human brain will receive support from the supercomputing resources at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Led by the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the BigNeuron project aims to create a common platform for analyzing the three-dimensional structure of neurons.

ISC has announced that a research paper in the area of in-memory architecture, jointly submitted by a team of seven researchers representing the Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), IBM Germany and the IBM Watson Research Center in the US, has been selected to receive the inaugural Hans Meuer Award. The awarding will take place at the ISC High Performance conference on Monday, July 13.
Each year, the global supercomputing community honors a handful of the leading contributors to the field with the presentation of the IEEE Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award, the IEEE Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award and the ACM-IEEE Ken Kennedy Award. Nominations for these awards to be presented at SC15 in Austin are now open and the submission deadline is Wednesday, July 1, 2015.
The German Climate Computing Center is managing the world's largest climate simulation data archive, used by climate researchers worldwide. The archive consists of more than 40 petabytes of data and is projected to grow by roughly 75 petabytes annually over the next five years. As climate simulations are carried out on increasingly powerful supercomputers, massive amounts of data are produced that must be effectively stored and analyzed.

A research team has demonstrated a predictive modeling capability that can help accelerate the discovery of new materials to improve biofuel and petroleum production. The findings present a tool that could lead to more efficient processes in the biofuel and petrochemical industries, while reducing the time and cost of associated laboratory research and development efforts. The materials of interest are called zeolites.
IBM scientists unveiled two critical advances towards the realization of a practical quantum computer. For the first time, they showed the ability to detect and measure both kinds of quantum errors simultaneously, as well as demonstrated a new, square quantum bit circuit design that is the only physical architecture that could successfully scale to larger dimensions.
