Center for Computing Research

The Center for Computing Research (CCR) at Sandia creates technology and solutions for many of our nation's most demanding national security challenges. The Center's portfolio spans the spectrum from fundamental research to state‑of‑the‑art applications. Our work includes computer system architecture (both hardware and software); enabling technology for modeling physical and engineering systems; and research in discrete mathematics, data analytics, cognitive modeling, and decision support materials.

    CCR Researcher Jay Lofstead Co-Authors Best Paper at HPDC’19

    CCR Researcher Jay Lofstead and his co-authors from the Illinois Institute of Technology have been awarded Best Paper at the recent 2019 ACM International Symposium on High- Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing. Their paper entitled “LABIOS: A Distributed Label-Based I/O System” describes an approach to supporting a wide variety of conflicting I/O workloads under a single storage system. The paper introduces a new data representation called a label, which more clearly describes the contents of data and how it should be delivered to and from the underlying storage system. LABIOS is a new class of storage system that uses data labeling and implements a distributed, fully decoupled, and adaptive I/O platform that is intended to grow in the intersection of High-Performance Computing and Big Data. Each year the HPDC Program Chairs select the Best Paper based on reviews and discussion among the members of the Technical Program Committee. The award is named in memory of Karsten Schwan, a professor at Georgia Tech who made significant and lasting contributions to the field of parallel and distributed computing.

    CCR Researcher Ryan Grant Honored by Queen’s University

    CCR Researcher Ryan Grant was recently recognized by his alma mater as one of the top 125 engineering alumni or faculty of Queen’s University during a celebration of the 125thanniversary of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The award recognizes the achievements of alumni and faculty who are outstanding leaders in their field and represent excellence in engineering. Winners were recognized in March during a ceremony at the university in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Ryan received his Bachelor of Applied Science, Master of Science in Engineering, and Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Queen’s, and he is a Principal member of technical staff in the Scalable System Software department with expertise in high-performance interconnect technologies.
