Prof. Takahashi presented at ISC 2023

Prof. Takahashi presented the following paper at ISC 2023, an international conference on high performance computing that was held from May 21 to 25 in Hamburg, Germany.

Keichi Takahashi, Soya Fujimoto, Satoru Nagase, Yoko Isobe, Yoichi Shimomura, Ryusuke Egawa, Hiroyuki Takizawa, “Performance Evaluation of a Next-Generation SX-Aurora TSUBASA Vector Supercomputer,” ISC High Performance 2023, May 2023. 10.1007/978-3-031-32041-5_19

Satake’s work presented at iWAPT2023.

At an international workshop, iWAPT2023, Prof. Takizawa presented the work done by Moto Satake who completed his master course in March 2023.  The workshop is about software performance automatic tuning, so the audiences were interested in the proposed parallel execution method of Bayesian optimization, and thus we had fruitful discussions at the workshop. The information about the paper is as follows.

Mr. Dominik Mann has joined our lab as a short-term student!

Hello everyone, my name is Dominik Mann. I am a M2 student in applied statistics at the University of Goettingen in Germany.
I came to the Takizawa Lab through the COLABS exchange program of the Tohoku University and will be a part of the lab for the next six months.
My main research interest involves practical applications of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. I believe that getting to know how to utilize supercomputers and high-performance computing systems in general will increase my practical skills by combining both Machine Learning and supercomputers. I am grateful for getting this opportunity in this very exciting environment and looking forward to some special experiences.

B4 participated in a local seminar.

Hello! My name is Daiki Nakai, M2 student.
In Takizawa Laboratory, in addition to the global seminar held by the entire laboratory, local seminars are held on the initiative of students.
In the local seminar, each student gives a progress report for the week and discusses with professors and other students.
During summer and spring breaks, the frequency is once every two weeks.
B4 students are looking forward to seeing what kind of research they will conduct!

This semester’s seminars have started!

This is Daiki Nakai, an M1 student.
At Takizawa Laboratory, seminars started on April 10.
In the seminar, students give progress reports and introduce their papers.
Presentations will come around once a month.
We will do our best for our master’s thesis.

Mr. Satake gave a research talk at the IPSJ SIGPC meeting

Mr. Satake, a master’s student at our laboratory, presented a paper at the 188th IPSJ SIGHPC meeting held from March 16 to 17, 2023 at the Hokkaido University Conference Hall. Good job, Mr. Satake!

There was still snow on the Hokkaido University campus.

Lunch at a soup curry restaurant near the conference hall.

M1 has participated in Multidisciplinary Seminar

Hello, this is Hiroki Nakai, M1 student.
Multidisciplinary Seminar was held on March 6.
Multidisciplinary Seminar is a poster presentation by M1 students on their research results for the past year and their research plans for the coming year.
From our laboratory, three students, Aoyagi, Ishii, and Nakai, gave presentations.

The presentation had been held online until last year, but this year, the traditional face-to-face presentation method was used, and many people asked questions, making it a very meaningful time.
We will take many comments into consideration and do our best for our master’s thesis.

Prof. Takahashi spoke at Cyber HPC Symposium 2023

Assistant Professor Takahashi participated as a panelist in the Cyber HPC Symposium 2023 held at the Cybermedia Center, Osaka University on March 6, 2023.

The panel discussion was entitled “Toward the New Research Infrastructure of Cybermedia Center, Osaka University”, in which the state of university computing centers was reported, and the future of supercomputers and computing centers was discussed.

Graduation thesis has been submitted.

Hello, this is Koda from B4.

Today, I successfully submitted my graduation thesis.
Although I faced many difficulties in my research, I was able to complete my thesis thanks to the guidance and support of the professors and students in my laboratory. Thank you very much.

I will continue to do my best in my master’s program, making the most of what I have learned in my graduation research!

Graduation research presentations have been completed.

Hello, this is Koda from B4.

On February 13~14, there was a graduation research presentation.
In my presentation, many people asked me questions and I was able to exchange valuable opinions with them.
In addition, the presentations by other students in the aerospace course were also very interesting and a great experience for me.
Now I’m going to work hard to finish writing my thesis for the March 3 deadline for my graduation thesis!
