Profile | Background | Working at ICL | Open Positions

Over the years, we have attracted many post-doctoral researchers and professors from multi-disciplines such as mathematics, chemistry, etc. Many of these experts came to UT specifically to work with Dr. Dongarra, which began a long list of top research talent to pass through ICL and move on to make exciting contributions at other institutions and organizations. Below is a short list of the many experts who have passed through ICL on their way to distinguished careers at other organizations and academic institutions.

Dozens of tools and applications of high value to the HPC community have been produced at ICL since its inception. Many of these now form the basic fabric of HPC, scientific computing. Below is just a brief list of some of the technologies that we have produced or been a part of since our beginning:

Active Netlib ATLAS BLAS
FT-MPI HARNESS LAPACK
LAPACK for Clusters LINPACK Benchmark MPI
NetBuild Netlib NetSolve
PAPI PVM RIB
ScaLAPACK Top500  

Today, some of these successes continue along with current efforts such as Blackjack, DAGuE, Fault Tolerant Linear Algebra (FT-LA), HPC Challenge benchmark suite (HPCC), High Performance Linpack (HPL), MAGMA, MuMI, PLASMA, GridSolve, Open MPI and PAPI. Many of our efforts have been recognized nationally and internationally, which includes many awards such as four R&D 100 awards; PVM in 1994, ATLAS and NetSolve in 1999, and PAPI in 2001.
