GlobusWorld 2014: Beyond Transfer23Apr2014The importance of moving data can’t be underestimated. In a time of increasingly far-flung scientific collaborations, advanced instruments, and rapidly ballooning datasets, getting data from point A to point B can be the primary brake on the speed of discovery. But once the data reaches its destination, there’s still much to be done, and many tasks that can be accelerated using cloud-based cyberinfrastructure: sharing data securely, […]

Sloan Foundation Grant Helps Globus Democratize Data Science16Apr2014The explosion of data across disciplines has opened up vast new possibilities for scientific discovery. But many researchers do not yet have access to the advanced infrastructure needed to work with Big Data and realize its full potential. With new support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Globus can expand its mission to bring the advanced data management infrastructure used by massive science […]
High Performance Agent-Based Modeling in Repast HPCJohn T. Murphy, ArgonneMay 01, 2014Argonne TCS Building 240, Rm 5172Abstract: Repast HPC is a platform for creating agent-based models (ABMs) in any high-performance computing environment that implements parallelism using MPI. Repast HPC provides a simple framework in which users can construct models without knowledge of MPI or other low-level details of parallel computing, and has extended the power of HPC to a wide range of users in the […]
