UM is a founding member of the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC), a non-profit multi-institutional effort to promote petascale computing and applications. Here are several new GLCPC activities and initiatives.
(1) GLCPC NEWS MAILING LIST
We recently created a group email list for people at all the member institutions interested in receiving GLCPC news about high-performance computing and Blue Waters. Anyone can subscribe (or unsubscribe) to this GLCPC-NEWS list.
To subscribe to this GLCPC NEWS list, send email to: email@example.com
Do not put anything in the Subject line.

(2) BLUE WATERS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER, DECEMBER 2010
The December 2010 issue of the Blue Waters Quarterly Newsletter is available. It highlights the work of the PRAC teams, with an article on the Chemistry Group at Iowa State University. The Newsletter also includes articles on: DOE’s Simulations Summit, Blue Waters Libraries, DOE INCITE Awards, NSF HPC Workshop, SC10, and the GLCPC. This issue, and previous issues, can be downloaded from the Blue Waters website <http://www.ncsa.illinois.edu/BlueWaters/newsletters.html>.
(3) BLUE WATERS UNDERGRADUATE PETASCALE INTERNSHIPS
Shodor, a GLCPC member institution, is a national resource for computational science education. Under its direction, the NSF Blue Waters project will be funding 17 undergraduate research internships again this year. This program provides for: 1) a $5000 stipend for the student over the course of the year; 2) travel, accommodations, meals and participation in a two-week intensive Petascale Institute at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA); and, 3) travel to the SC11 conference in Seattle in November. Because this program is run nationally, Shodor is soliciting student applications from across the country. In addition, Shodor is seeking faculty with research or educational projects involving high-performance computing to post intern positions through its site. Positions can be created for a particular student, or open to qualified applicants. To learn more about the Blue Waters Undergraduate Petascale Education Program (BW-UPEP), and for information on how you can become involved, please visit Shodor’s website at <http://shodor.org/petascale/participation/internships/>.
