On November 10-16 in Salt Lake City (USA) the 24th annual largest conference in the world on supercomputer technologies Supercomputing Conference 2012 (SC'12) took place. Within the framework of conference there was the exhibition where 363 organizations such as supercomputer and software developers and world leading universities which deal with supercomputer technologies demonstrated their achievements.
At the exibition the Rusian education was represented only by two universities: South Ural State University and Moscow State University named after Lomonosov M.V. At SC'12 Conference the SUSU delegation comprised Leonid Sokolinsky, Dean of Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Computer Science, Head of Supercomputer Modeling Laboratory, Kseniya Repina and Elena Khudyakova, programmers of Supercomputer Modeling Laboratory.
SUSU exposition demonstrated a great number of practical industrial solutions of supercomputer technologies application which were prepared together with Russian large industrial enterprises. The guests of the Exhibition were interested mostly in the projects of supercomputer modeling of industrial and technological processes which were realized togther with the world and regional largest industrial enterprises ("Emerson", JSC "Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant", LLC "Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant - URALTRAK" and others) and in the problems of human body modeling, chemical nanoconnections, different economic processes and problems of industrial safety. In total there are more than 250 tasks which are calculated on SUSU supercomputers.
During the Conference meetings new revisions of TOP500 (the most powerful supercomputers in the world), 40th revision, and GREEN500 (the most energy efficient supercomputers), 12th version, were announced. The supercomputer systems "SUSU Tornado" and "SUSU Avrora" developed by RSC company took the 170th and 303d places accordingly in TOP500 List. Besides SUSU one more Russian university, Moscow State University, represented its supercomputer "Lomonosov" and took the 26th place in TOP500. According to GREEN500 SUSU supercomputers take the 2nd and 3d places among Russian systems, the 1st place belongs to supercomputer of Inter-Departmental Supercomputer Centre, developed by RSC as well. These results had been achieved with the help of the latest technologies of liquid cooling of the motherboards.
The participation of South Ural State University in the International Conference SC'12 showed that the level of high-performance technologies development in SUSU is at the highest world level.
Television and radio broadcasting company "SUSU-TV" will prepare a video about SUSU as a participant of the largest International Supercomputer Conference SC'12.
