    KISTI-NVIDIA signs MOU for MPCC

    Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) and NVIDIA signed an MOU on Aug. 6th for the construction of KISTI-NVIDIA MPCC, Massively Parallel Computing Center. More Massively Parallel Computers using GPU(Graphic Processing Unit) are now listed on the TOP 500 Supercomputer List, and are being actively researched and utilized as the next generation of Supercomputing Architecture. Domestically, however, not many related studies are underway due to the lack of professional manpower. Through the signing of this MOU, KISTI-NVIDIA MPCC plan to operate GPU based Massively Parallel Computer expert training program. Moreover, MPCC will build a GPU exclusive system for developing and utilizing the new generation Massively Parallel Computer. Dr. Jysoo Lee, Head of KISTI National Supercomputing R&D Division noted: "MOU between KISTI National Supercomputing R&D Division and the global-leading corporation NVIDIA is much expected to amplify the synergy in training domestic experts and invigorating related research."

    NTIS for KOREA-KAZAKH Summit Agenda

    On the 19th of June, President Park Geun-Hye and her Kazakhstan counterpart President Nursultan Nazarbayev had a summit meeting in Astana, Kazakhstan. The summit is the 12th between the leaders of two countries, since the two countries formed bilateral ties in 1992. During the summit meeting, the construction of a thermal plant and petrochemical complex was raised as main discussion points, as well as medicine cooperation, visa waiver and so on. Along with the national agendas, Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP) of Korea and Ministry of Education and Science (MES) of Kazakhstan signed a MOU for KOR-Kazakh national R&D Information System construction. The cooperation on building Kazakh's national R&D Information System will be based on Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI)'s NTIS system. Upon the request of NCSTE Kazakhstan, an evaluating institute for science and technology, KISTI will actively participate in the construction. KISTI and NCSTE will be going through a feasibility study on the system's construction, starting September 2014. Both parties will be able to plan ahead for building a solid R&D Information System, to boost Kazakhstan's scientific and technological advancement.

    2014 KOREA-CHINA Tech Fair in Daejeon, Korea

    On 26th of June, the 4th KOREA-CHINA Tech Fair was held at DCC, Daejeon. The fair was held in cooperation with Jilin Province, especially Changchun, Jilin and Tumen area. KOREA-CHINA Tech Fair is intended to work out as a bridge between SMEs of two nations, guiding them together for better business and trade options. This year, more than 300 attendees attended the fair as supporting personnel and CEOs of SMEs. KOREA-CHINA Tech Fair has matched 74 cases of MOU during the last 4 events, more if including consulting processes of SMES. SMEs oftentimes find it difficult to share technological information on an international level. With the abundant experience within the last three fairs, KISTI has been providing reliable chances for ASTI-affiliated SMEs to expand overseas. Dr. Park Yeong-Seo, President of KISTI, noted: "Now that the technological innovation and expansion of SMEs are of such importance, KISTI will keep strengthening our cooperation with Chinese government agencies and Chinese SMEs to create more cases of successful cooperation."

    Advanced Logic Applications - Quantum Computers by Dr. Hoon Ryu

    Advanced Logic Applications - Quantum Computers - Design of Si-based Qubit Systems using High Performance Computer -   High performance computers (HPCs) accelerate the feasibility of quantum information processing. Quantum computers, processing the logic information with a sequence of the quantum bit (qubit), have obtained keen attention due to their extremely good efficiency in solving large-scale problems. Silicon, a well-known semiconductor material, has been regarded as a great material candidate for quantum computers as its decoherence time is extremely large. Using HPCs, KISTI works on modeling researches with two purposes: (1) pre-estimate Si-based multi-qubit systems to provide experimentalists with a guide-line of potential device designs, and (2) present theoretical evidences to validate physically realized device prototypes. While the experimental realization should become the central part of advanced device research, the experimental work itself is hard to be accepted as a good research outcome unless the result is validated in a theory perspective. Since 2011, KISTI have started quantum device modeling research. Dr. Hoon Ryu, a senior researcher at KISTI, developed a parallel solver to compute the electronic structures of nanoscale devices in a 3D manner. Pursuing the research collaboration with Purdue University in United States and University of New South Wales in Australia, Dr. Ryu has led the modeling part of collaborative researches. The team produces quite fruitful and world-leading research outcomes. In 2012, the study of the metallic property of “ultrathin P-doped Si nanowires”, which could be used as inter-connectors for Si qubit systems, was published in . In the same year, the team demonstrated the feasibility of a single P-doped Si qubit system, publishing the result in . In 2013, the design guideline for ultra-thin Si-P nanowires are published in (IF 6.2). In 2014, the multi-qubit systems have been demonstrated for the first time using Si-P, and the result was again published in . Dr. Ryu said that “We have so far succeeded in getting 2~3 P atoms integrated in Si bulk. To expand the scalability of Si-based multi-qubit systems, much more P atoms need to be successfully integrated, guaranteeing reasonably good device performances. We are moving to the next step for integration of 4~8 P atoms, and HPC-based modeling research of course will play a key role because it not only accelerates the experimental work by estimating performances in advance, but also presents a comprehensive theoretical framework of Si-P electronics that could be extremely useful for the potential device design."   Dr. Hoon Ryu 1. Current Affiliation Senior Researcher in Supercomputing R/D Center, National Institute of Supercomputing and Networking, Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information.   2. Education ○ B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Seoul National University, Republic of Korea ○ M.S. in Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, USA. ○ Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Purdue University, USA.

    KISTI-ACTS Co-founds Joint Research Lab

    KISTI (Korea Institute of Science and Technology) and ACTS (Advanced Cultural Technologies & Services, Daejeon) co-founded a joint research lab to support SMEs to create ultra HD contents using KISTI's supercomputing system. The joint research lab AKIReC (ACTS + KISTI + Research + Center) is located in ACTS Action Center. AKIReC plan to provide high-tech producing environment for creating UHD contents. Local SMEs will be able to utilize supercomputing system for computer graphic and special effects. The SMEs could also develop new merchandises and business models with 3D printing system as well. Both parties agreed to foster an approachable research environment for OSMU (One-Source Multi-Use). It is highly expected that utilization of the supercomputing system is soon to rise in this upcoming era of UHD contents. Dr. Park Young Seo, President of KISTI, noted: "We hope supercomputer simulation-based technologies would be widely used in fields including film making, broadcasting and communications industry." President of ACTS, Lee Hyo-Jeong also expected that the creation of UHD contents would boost the local economy as well.

    KISTI Signs MOU with TIPA

    KISTI (Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information) signed a memorandum of understanding with TIPA (Korea Technology and Information Promotion Agency for SMEs). The conclusion of MOU took place at KISTI's head office on Feb. 19th, 2014. This MOU is intended to provide active support for SMEs' R&D planning and technical development. The agreement is to strengthen the public support system for SMEs' R&D planning. SMEs face hardships when planning R&D, for the lack of human resources and material resources. Such hardships prevent SMEs from constructing the very foundation of possible business opportunities, and therefore KISTI and TIPA plan to establish an organic cooperation to revel out difficulties SMEs face. Both parties will also be involved in nurturing future R&D specialists. Dr. Park Young Seo, President of KISTI, noted: "We plan to arrange better opportunities for SMEs with R&D difficulties through the agreement." President of TIPA also expected this MOU to produce synergy for both parties' aid on SMEs."
