Q8 – Best use of High Performance Data Analytics

Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology, Cambridge University, uses the first Intel Xeon Phi-enabled SGI UV2000 with its co-designed "MG Blade" Phi-housing and achieved 100X speed-up of MODAL code to probe the Cosmic Background Radiation with optimizations in porting the MODAL to the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.

Q16 – Best Data-Intensive System (End User Focused)

COSMOS supercomputing facility at the Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology, Cambridge University, which uses of the world’s first Intel Xeon Phi-enabled SGI UV2000 with its co-designed "MG Blade" Phi-housing.

Q18 – Best HPC Collaboration Between Academia & Industry

SGI/Intel long-term collaboration with COSMOS supercomputing facility at the Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology which among other things achieved a 100x speedup of cosmology code.

If you have been a user of COSMOS and it has benefitted your research in cosmology, astrophysics or particle physics, we would be very grateful if you could go to the HPCwire website and vote for us in the above categories.
