As one of the series of ‘Basic Science - Dream and Hope for the Future’, the supercomputing system designed by ICCP has been featured by YTN news. With the high-end infrastructure, ICCP will expand the frontiers of earth system science by conducting climate model simulations with an unprecedented spatial resolution.
PNU’s IBS Center for Climate Physics (ICCP), in collaboration with the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), is launching a new supercomputing facility at the IBS Headquarter Center in Daejeon. The new 9 million USD Cray XC50™ supercomputer and its Cray ClusterStor™ L300F parallel file storage system will be mostly dedicated to climate and earth system research. Using 469 nodes of Intel Xeon Gold 6149 Processors with 192 GigaByte memory per node (90 Terabyte in total), the computer can conduct up to 1.43 quadrillion floating point per second (1.43 PFlops).
Following the recommendation of IBS Directors Axel Timmermann, Nary Kim (SNU) and Yannis Semertzidis (KAIST), the Institute for Basic Science Headquarter launched its first Gender Equality Committee. The committee met on July 13th to discuss ways to improve working conditions and work/life balance for women within IBS. The objective of the team is to develop and implement policies that make IBS a discrimination-free equal opportunity workspace.

In May, the IBS Center for Climate Physics (ICCP) signed a Collaboration Agreement with the University of Bergen to take part in the Advanced Climate Education and Research (ACER) project. ACER is an international collaborative effort to promote world-class climate research and education.

Dedicated to the mystery of Vincent van Gogh’s death, watching the first fully painted movie, ‘Loving Vincent’, is a truly enchanting experience. IBS scientists created their own interpretation of Van Gogh’s art, where oil color brushes are replaced by contour lines of atmospheric flow simulated on a supercomputer.
ICCP was the main organizer of the IBS Conference on Climate Change and Human Migration which was held from November 27th to December 1st in the Paradise Hotel in Busan. This conference brought together world-leading experts in climate change, anthropology, archaeology, genetics, food security, social sciences, and climate justice to discuss the issue of climate-induced human migration.
