The Intel® Parallel Computing Centers (Intel® PCC) program is collaborating with ICES' Science of High-Performance Computing (SHPC) Group to enable large computer code performance increases while maintaining code portability.
The Intel® PCC at ICES group will develop novel algorithms and runtime systems for performing tensor contractions on multi- and many-core systems such as Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors. The algorithms are a critical computational step in high-accuracy quantum chemical calculations necessary to describe fully the structure, kinetics, spectroscopy and other physics of atoms and molecules.

The National Science Foundation has awarded ICES Professor Inderjit Dhillon $1.2 million to develop scalable and sophisticated machine learning methods to analyze big data.
"With an ever-growing ability to collect and archive data, massive data sets are becoming increasingly common," said Dhillon, a professor of computer science. "These data sets are often too big to fit into the main memory of a single computer. So there is a great need for developing scalable and sophisticated machine learning methods for their analysis."

ICES Professor Keshav Pingali gave four international keynote speeches and two distinguished university lectures in 2015.
Most recently he served as the keynote speaker at the International Conference on Parallel Computing, ParCo 2015, in Edinburgh, September 2015.
ICES Professor Jim Chelikowsky served as an organizer for the December workshop "Real-space formalism within the PARSEC code: perspectives and future development."
Held at Tel Aviv University Dec. 13-17, the workshop invited 15 speakers from throughout the world to offer tutorials, lectures, and simulation exercises. Read more.Posted: Jan. 11, 2016
Beginning Jan. 8, ICES will host its first in a series of nine lectures by world leaders in computational medicine.
Alison Marsden, associate professor of pediatrics and of bioengineering at Stanford University, will be the inaugural speaker in the series, which seeks to highlight computational medicine's critical contributions to advancing healthcare.
"Computational Medicine is an emerging field that uses computer modeling, simulation, and data analysis to promote advances in prognosis, therapies, non-invasive diagnostic methods, and personalized medicine,” says Michael Sacks, ICES professor of biomedical engineering and an organizer of the series.
