Professor Shantenu Jha is the PI of a Department of Energy (DOE) ASCR award to Rutgers, along with Brookhaven National Laboratory (lead), Oak Ridge National Laboratory and University of Texas for the project titled, "Workflow Management on Titan for High Energy and Nuclear Physics and for Future Extreme Scale Scientific Applications”. The 2 year project is funded at $2M, and Rutgers will receive $565K and be responsible for research into workload management and placement. Working with the ATLAS experiment — one of two major experiments at CERN in Geneva, this project will investigate new and scalable high-performance and distributed computing methods to federate DOE leadership computing facilities with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Grid. The research outcomes and solutions from this project are likely to guide the design and implementation of future computing infrastructure that CERN will employ as it plans for Run 3 and Run 4 of the LHC, producing thousands to million times greater volumes of complex data.
Congratulations on yet another high profile project Shantenu!
