Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility Fosters GCC Compiler Development with Mentor Contract
Sep. 3, 2020

Mentor, a Siemens business, to develop GCC compiler for increased opportunities in high-performance computing

The computational scientists who run codes on the massively powerful supercomputers at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) are working on solving some of the world’s most challenging problems. The OLCF supports research in areas ranging from biology to engineering to energy—and it is now supporting work related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Crucial to running the computational codes that enable this research are compilers, tools that convert a user’s programming instructions into code that the computers can actually execute.
