KAUST Ph.D. graduate Dr. Noha Al-Harthi and doctoral student Rabab Alomairy, have won the German Gauss Center for Supercomputing (GCS) Award for original research that best advances high-performance computing. This makes KAUST the first Middle Eastern institution to receive this prestigious award.
The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed challenges across the globe that need to be solved using scientific discovery and innovation. In line with that, the KAUST Supercomputing Core Laboratory (KSL) has opened a call for proposals that require its supercomputer Shaheen II, as well as other cluster computing resources, to support research projects.
 David Keyes, KAUST professor of applied mathematics and computational science; director of the University's Extreme Computing Research Center; and senior associate to the President of KAUST, will chair the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) 2020. He will be the first program chair from a Middle Eastern institution, as announced by ISC 2020. 
Astronomy research excellence is coming back home to the Middle East, where it took its first steps around 1200 BC. Custome new software developed by the KAUST Extreme Computing Research Center (ECRC) was released at the end of 2017. Named MOAO - Multiple Object Adaptive Optics – the software will contribute to the activities of the world's largest future optical telescope to be deployed in Chile in 2024.
