Barba receives NSF CAREER award

Barba-Lorena-2011

The award will fund Prof. Barba’s research in scalable algorithms for extreme computing on heterogeneous systems. Recent trends in high-performance computing (HPC) are clearly in the direction of computing systems involving various structurally different types of hardware (i.e., heterogeneous), of which a prominent example are GPUs (graphics processing units). Prof. Barba is one of the early adopters of GPU... Continue »

Barba awarded computer center grant

The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) is a ground-breaking collaboration of five of the state’s most research-intensive universities, state government and private industry—the most significant such collaboration in the history of the Commonwealth.

Prof. Barba led a multi-institution bid to success in the call for research seed grants of the Massachusetts Green High-Performance Computing Center, MGHPCC. The award amounts to $130,487 for the duration of one year. This project is a collaboration among investigators in BU, Harvard and UMass aimed at creating an open and high-performance software infrastructure... Continue »
