SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 25 – HPCwire, the #1 news and information portal covering the entire ecosystem of High Performance Computing (HPC) announced today that it has published the ‘HPCwire People to Watch 2013’ list. The annual list is comprised of an elite group of the best and brightest minds in HPC whose research, dedication and hard work will be making a difference in the HPC community and in the world with their contributions.
The annual selections are made following an extensive review process by the HPCwire editorial and executive staff, recommendations from past recipients, and with guidance from industry analysts and luminaries across the HPC community.
"This is an annual special feature that we take very seriously. A significant amount of time and effort is dedicated towards a review and deliberation process by a panel of global experts before the final selections are made,” said Jeff Hyman, President and Group Publisher, HPCwire. "Taking into consideration the sheer magnitude of the contributions that these brilliant men and women are making through their work with HPC and emerging technologies, makes it harder each year to limit the list to only twelve individuals. It’s truly an honor for me to be able to announce today the men and women we believe will impact and influence the future of High Performance Computing in 2013 and beyond. Congratulations.”

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
