27.10.2014 LHC ATLAS simulations on Cray Supercomputers

Using a framework developed by the AEC-LHEP ATLAS group, computing tasks for the ATLAS detector, one of the two large multipurpose instruments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), have been run on a Cray High-Performance Computers (HPC) system. Development and testing was done on a Cray XK7 machine located at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). This innovative milestone shows that LHC can use supercomputers to address its future big data and extreme processing needs. There are current efforts to implement the same setup on HPC systems in Germany, Czechia and China.

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The six main subjects are:

The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.
