Designing plasma-facing components (PFCs) that can tolerate the extreme heat and particle flux exposure conditions inside a fusion reactor core is one of the major obstacles toward the practical realization of nuclear fusion. Dimitrios Maroudas, a Professor in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, uses MGHPCC computing facilities to study plasma-surface interactions and their effects on surface morphology and near-surface structure in plasma-facing components of nuclear fusion reactors. Continue reading Modeling Plasma-Surface Interactions

The MGHPCC Supercloud, operated by MIT Lincoln Laboratory Supercomputing Center (LLSC) is a facility intended to be of particular use to people who need to transition from their desktop workstation to a high performance computing cluster in order to solve larger or more complex problems, but do not have the time to gain in-depth specialized knowledge about parallelizing application software, running batch jobs, optimizing startup times for large collections of simultaneous jobs, and other details that end users must otherwise master in a Linux cluster environment.

Holyoke Codes ran a Cyber Security Workshop for Girls Inc. on Saturday, December 8th, 2018 for Computer Science Education Week. The workshop was attended by 21 middle school aged girls, members of The Girls Inc. Eureka Program Rookies group. Eureka! Scholars spend time on the UMass Amherst campus and elsewhere, experiencing lab-based activities in science, technology, engineering, and math. Continue reading Holyoke Codes Cyber Security Workshop with Girls Inc.
With the closure of Holyoke’s Paper City Brewing in 2017, the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center and its neighbors are excited to welcome a new small batch brewing company to Race Street.

The world is in the midst of a data revolution. In response the five universities that form the MGHPCC consortium have each initiated a new data science institute, initiative or program, but how and where to store all that big data? The Northeast Storage Exchange (NESE) is a shared regional storage resource funded by the National Science Foundation which aims to do just that. Continue reading Big Data.
