The following ExMatEx staff were part of the recent R&D 100 award for Mantevo 1.0.

  • Jim Belak (LLNL)

From Sandia's announcement: The Mantevo suite, submitted by Mike Heroux (SNL), is an integrated collection of small software programs (miniapps) that model the performance of full-scale applications, yet require code only a fraction of the size of the full application. The Mantevo project pioneered the miniapp concept, and Mantevo Suite 1.0 is the first integrated collection of full-featured miniapps. Miniapps have emerged as central components of computer system co-design in an era of rapid architectural changes. Major companies like Intel, IBM, NVIDIA, AMD, Cray, along with universities and national laboratories, use miniapps for rapid design-space exploration in the development of the next generation of high-performance computers. The work was done in collaboration with, among others, Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories, and Santa Clara-based NVIDIA Corp.

Dave Richards (right), who did not need to rent a tuxedo, attended the award ceremony and banquet in Florida. See Miniapps Pick Up the Pace at the R&D 100 site for more information.
