Wilhelm Exner Medal awarded to Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes Wilhelm Exner Medal awarded to Professor Thomas J.R. Hughes

During a ceremony at the Annual General Meeting of the ÖGV in Vienna, Austria, November 18, ICES Professor Thomas J. R. Hughes was awarded the Wilhelm Exner Medal, “in recognition of his pioneering developments in the field of modeling and simulation, its highly successful economic exploitation, and, more generally, for being an outstanding scientist.”

The Federal President of Austria, Professor Dr. Heinz Fischer hosted a reception in his office in the Hofburg Palace to honor Hughes,
already active in the country as a corresponding member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Read more.

CSEM Student Lindley Graham makes international presentation on storm predictions CSEM Student Lindley Graham makes international presentation on storm predictions

How can mathematical models help in the prediction of storms and hurricanes? How do they help determine the uncertainty that underlies extreme weather conditions? Understanding these answers can help reduce the human and monetary costs associated with natural disasters. CSEM Student Lindley Graham working under ICES Professor Clint Dawson, and former ICES PostDoc Troy Butler who worked under Dawson and is now at the University of Colorado, explain how such models and simulations help us better understand natural disasters in this new video produced during the international meeting of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Pingali featured on TACC podcast Pingali featured on TACC podcast

ICES Professor Keshav Pingali is featured on a TACC podcast discussing work with researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign which they presented at the technical program of the supercomputing conference SC14.

Pingali, a professor of computer science, presented the first parallel implementation of two widely used reordering algorithms for sparse matrix computations. The work relied on a project called Galois, a runtime system to "effectively find what can be done in parallel while running the program itself," explained Pingali. Read more.
