NCERC?s Caupert Testifies at EPA Public Hearing2013-12-10 14:54:44 SIUE.edu
As director of the NCERC, a biofuels research center that conducts contractual research services for the public and private sectors, Caupert testified about the proposal?s impact on investment in biofuels research and development.
?This proposal has already created uncertainty in the marketplace, resulting in the postponement of millions of dollars of biofuels research projects,? Caupert said. ?If the proposed levels are finalized, the results will be financially devastating to many sectors of the U.S. economy. Investment in research, development and commercialization won?t be postponed or slowed down ? it will stop.?
Caupert was joined at the hearing by representatives from the Illinois Corn Growers Association, National Corn Growers Association and hundreds of biofuels advocates from across the country. The hearing allowed stakeholders to issue oral comments in response to the EPA?s proposed Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) for 2014, which drastically slashed the biofuels requirements outlined in the Renewable Fuel Standard.
The 2014 RVO proposal will remain on the Federal Register for public comments for 60 days before the EPA issues a final ruling.

SIUE Computer Science Faculty Upgrade Classroom Experience2013-12-10 08:41:31 SIUE.edu
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville?s Igor Crk and Mark McKenney attended the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage Analysis (SC13) held in Denver during late November. The SIUE computer science faculty members returned to campus with a LittleFe computing mini-cluster to enhance classroom experiences.
Crk and McKenney are both assistant professors of computer science in SIUE?s School of Engineering. At SC13, they participated in a build-out event and brought back one LittleFe mini-cluster to SIUE. During the workshop, they assembled and configured the hardware, and discussed and tested existing and potential educational modules for classroom use with the LittleFe.
?The mini-cluster is largely intended for use in instructional activity involving high performance computing (HPC), parallel programming, and computational and data-driven science,? Crk said. ?Its portability, due to its small size, makes it ideal for classroom demonstrations.
?LittleFe is a welcome addition to the computer science department, where it will be a valuable resource for teaching distributed computing concepts that today?s data scientists in both the industry and academia find essential.?
According to its website, LittleFe originated in 2005 as an idea by Paul Gray from the University of Northern Iowa, Kean University?s Dave Joiner, Tom Murphy of Contra Costa College and Earlham College?s Charlie Peck. While the faculty members were teaching computational science education, they realized their curricula depended on local computing resources that were not always present.
During November 2010, the LittleFe project was awarded a grant from Intel. The grant?s purpose was to build 25 clusters to be given to faculty members across the United States. These computational science educators, would use their LittleFe clusters to improve or develop curricula for their students, and ultimately for such globally available resources as HPC University (HPCU) and the Computational Science Education Reference Desk (CSERD).
Crk and McKenney are currently developing learning modules to be used as classroom projects involving cluster computing both at SIUE and within the LittleFe community.
They received support from the SC13 HPC Educators Program and the LittleFe Project to attend the conference.
