International Price for Young Computational Physicist (HZDR)

Axel Huebl from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has recently received the George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE-CS) for his substantial work on the outstanding laser plasma-based physics simulation software PIConGPU.

Huebl and others reinvented the particle-in-cell algorithm to simulate plasma-physics with 3D simulations of unprecedented detail on leadership-scale many-core supercomputers such as Titan (ORNL). […] Huebl also derives models to understand and predict promising regimes for applications such as radiation therapy of cancer with laser-driven ion beams. (awards.acm.org)

The ACM IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial Fellowships honor exceptional PhD students in HPC research (among other fields) and is awarded on the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis SC16 (13. – 18. November).
