BLOOMINGTON, Ind. and DENVER, Colo. — Indiana University computer scientist Thomas Sterling has been named the first recipient of The Exascale Report’s HPC Vanguard Award. Mike Bernhardt, publisher of The Exascale Report and creator of the award, made the announcement yesterday at the Supercomputing 2013 conference in Denver. Sterling’s peers in the high...
The Exascale Report™ will honor the recipient of the inaugural HPC Vanguard Award at SC13 in Denver, recognizing a critical leader in the HPC community’s strategic push to achieve exascale levels of supercomputing performance.  The honoree is selected by the votes of hundreds of members of the HPC and emerging exascale community, and the award will be...
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Indiana University Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST) recently received a $1.9 million award to lead the computer science team of a new collaborative research project with the University of Notre Dame and Purdue University. CREST will work to develop the execution model, software and programming methods for scientists using...
In the world of supercomputers, where the top machines can cost upwards of $100 million, $1.1 million may not sound like much. To Thomas Sterling, chief scientist at the Center for Research in Extreme Scale Computing (CREST) at Indiana University, it's a sum that will go a long way toward funding his favorite project. The Department of Energy awarded that amount to Indiana...
For the past decade, keynote speakers at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) have examined the major accomplishments in HPC during the preceding year. This time the talk is more ambitious. At ISC '13 in Leipzig, Germany in June, Thomas Sterling will deliver a keynote that examines the HPC accomplishments over the last decade. He plans to reveal "the true...
  "Why is it that a high school student is more likely to know about the Hubble telescope, the common microscope, or even “atom smashers” than they are to understand the continuous impact on them of supercomputers?" High-performance computing veteran Thomas Sterling has the respect of his peers and the industry. His excellent speaking skills,...

About CREST

The Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST) main objective is to establish Indiana University (IU) as the national leader in the field of high-capability graph computing systems and applications. This emerging discipline holds great promise for dramatic impact through innovative research and development in science, industry, commerce, and defense-related domains with significant opportunity for invention of intellectual property.

CREST was established as the fourth research center within the Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) at IU. CREST is affiliated with PTI, the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC), and the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology (OVPIT) at IU.

Our technical strategy focuses on the research and development of advanced technologies for extreme-scale computing and future exascale systems, including the following key elements: Execution Models; Runtime Systems; Graph Processing; Programming Interfaces; Compilers, Libraries, and Languages; Systems Architecture (Architecture, Power/Energy, Fault Tolerance, Networking), and Extreme Scale Applications and Visualization.
