3 Jan 2017 Singapore - Singapore-based publisher Asian Scientist Publishing Pte Ltd. has launchedSupercomputing Asia, a new print title dedicated to tracking the latest developments in high performance computing across the region and making supercomputing accessible to the layman. The debut issue features exclusive interviews with Professor Jack Dongarra, compiler of the TOP500 supercomputer ranking, Associate Professor Fu Haohuan, deputy director of the National Supercomputing Center Wuxi, supercomputing pioneer Professor Gordon Bell, and green supercomputing expert Professor Satoshi Matsuoka.

The first of its kind in Asia, Supercomputing Asia is helmed by a stellar editorial advisory committee comprising Associate Professor Tan Tin Wee, Director of the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore and Chairman of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research's (A*STAR) Computational Resource Centre (A*CRC); industry veteran Nebojsa Novakovic; and Dr. John Gustafson, inaugural winner of the prestigious ACM Gordon Bell Prize (1988).

Supercomputers captured the public imagination when Google's AlphaGo supercomputer won South Korean Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol in four out of five matches. But behind the scenes, supercomputers have also transformed the way research is done, in applications ranging from tsunami prediction to clinical drug discovery.

"As is the case with the rest of science and technology, the supercomputing centre of gravity is shifting to Asia, with China's Sunway TaihuLight currently ranked number one in the world", stated Dr. Juliana Chan, Editor-in-Chief ofSupercomputing Asia. "The timing is perfect for us to launch a new print product introducing our readers to the exciting potential of supercomputers and the impressive progress being made right here in Asia."

The debut issue ofSupercomputing Asiatraces China's meteoric rise as a global supercomputing superpower, with exclusive interviews from Professor Jack Dongarra, compiler of the closely watched international TOP500 supercomputer ranking, and Associate Professor Fu Haohuan, whose team at the National Supercomputing Center Wuxi developed Sunway TaihuLight, the world's fastest system on the TOP500 list. Also profiled are legendary supercomputing pioneer Professor Gordon Bell of the eponymous Bell's Law and Gordon Bell Prize, and leading green supercomputing expert Professor Satoshi Matsuoka.

"Aside from well-established supercomputing powerhouses like Japan and emerging new players like China, Asian countries like Singapore and South Korea have recognized the transformational power of supercomputers and invested accordingly. We hope that this new publication will provide a unique insight into the exciting developments in this region", stated Dr. Rebecca Tan, Managing Editor ofSupercomputing Asia.
