Title:
Flexibility in MCNP
Date:
December 14th
5:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
BSEL
Richland, WA
Abstract:

Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) is a standard in the Radiation Protection field.  MCNP can model nearly any scenario for radiation protection activities: shielding design, medical physics, fission, and instrumentation design.  Three radiation protection activities and their analysis with MCNP will be presented to show the versatility of this program.

Title:
How Flash memory and Storage Class Memories are enabling Cognitive and Analytics Applications
Date:
December 14th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
ENGR
Boise, ID
Abstract:

Products based on fast persistent memory such as 3D XPoint are now available, two years after Intel and Micron announced the development of “a new class of non-volatile memory, creating the first new memory category in more than 25 years.” What applications can take full advantage of their speed even at the initial premium price (about 5 times the cost of flash)? A likely candidate is data analytics. After all, the more data enterprises can crunch, the more revenue they can generate or the most costs they can avoid or reduce. Flash Memory has already reduced response time and enabled applications which were very expensive or impossible with HDDs. Using Flash and persistent Storage Class Memories in tiers make them affordable and further enable real time analytics. A system that combines less expensive flash with persistent memory can approach the throughput and latency of an all-persistent memory implementation at much lower cost.

We will look not just at what flash memory and Storage Class Memories are, but examine system architectures and applications which exploit them.

Title:
Sub-Mesoscale Ocean Data Assimilation Framework based on the Non-Hydrostatic General Curvilinear Coastal Ocean Model (GCCOM)
Date:
December 18th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
ATEC - Advanced Test Equipment, 10401 Roselle St
San Diego, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:
One of the challenges in the simulation of coastal ocean dynamics is the vast range of length and time scales present. While global- and basin-scale processes and currents can be captured quite well with computationally-inexpensive hydrostatic models, smaller-scale features such as shoaling nonlinear internal waves and bores, coastal fronts, and other convective processes require the use of a nonhydrostatic model to capture dynamics accurately. In this talk we introduce the nonhydrostatic capabilities of the General Curvilinear Coastal Ocean Model (GCCOM) in a stratified environment. GCCOM is a three-dimensional, nonhydrostatic Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model that can run in a fully three-dimensional general curvilinear coordinate system. While this model was validated for unstratified flows, we present on recent advances of the model to simulate stratified flows. A suite of test cases widely used as benchmarks for assessing the nonhydrostatic capabilities for gravity-driven flows. These validation experiments demonstrate that GCCOM can resolve complex nonhydrostatic phenomena in stratified flows with numerical accuracy and mass and energy conservation. In the second part of the talk, I present the integration of a data assimilation framework for GCCOM with the aim to study sub-mesoscale processes. When provided with the proper data, mesoscale phenomena have been modeled with a certain level of accuracy; however, many sub-mesoscale features are still poorly modeled, causing them to remain largely unpredictable. 3D nonhydrostatic models are required to accurately capture these key dynamics. Although this implementation is essential for the successful development of physical ocean models, a major challenge posed by this approach is the high computational cost incurred by high-resolution numerical models with three-dimensional data assimilation schemes. However, by interfacing GCCOM with NCAR's Data Assimilation Research Testbed (DART), we enable GCCOM to integrate observations into its system. This research included Observation System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) for test cases using very steep seamounts. Results demonstrated that the DARTG-CCOM model can assimilate high-resolution observations using as few as 30 ensemble members.
Title:
Blockchain, the Cryptocurrency Market, and Power System Load Impacts NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Date:
December 19th
12:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
825 NE Multnomah Drive
Portland
Abstract:

Do you speak blockchain? Bitcoin, Ethereum, Sawtooth, ICO, Smart contracts, Miners, Oracles...etc. Can you keep all of these straight? In this talk, Cian will take you on a journey through the origins of blockchain technology, delve into the current state of the cryptocurrency market and examine opportunities for leveraging blockchains in the enterprise. Also, he will explain why electrical load on utilities will go up. He will help you make sense of the intriguing, but sometimes bewildering world of blockchains.

Summary:

Why did Silicon Valley

come into being? Paul Wesling, an IEEE Life Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer, will give an exciting and colorful history of device technology development and innovation that began in Palo Alto with some Stanford grads, and spread across the Santa Clara Valley during and following World War II. You'll meet some of the colorful characters – Cyril Elwell, Lee DeForest, Bill Eitel, Charles Litton, Fred Terman, David Packard, Bill Hewlett and others -- who came to set leadership patterns for the worldwide electronics industries through their inventions and process development and allied management techniques. Exploding after military investments during and after WW II, this innovation continued through analog design, to digital, then to software, biotech, the Internet, mobile, Big Data, virtual reality, and now autonomous transportation. He’ll end by telling us about some current movements that keep alive the spirit of the radio Hams and the Homebrew Computer Club -- Maker Faire, MeetUps, incubators, and the other entrepreneurial groups where geeks gather to start new companies that invent the future.
