Europe is notorious for its high energy costs. In the first of three articles on energy efficiency in high-performance computing, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World asks if that’s why so much of the initiative appears to be coming from Europe.
The European PRACE initiative is collaborating with the Women in HPC organization to publish two magazines dedicated to Women in High Performance Computing. The cover of at least one of these magazines will include a mosaic or collage of pictures of women working in HPC in Europe, and they need to collect as many photographs as possible.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe has issued their Call for Proposals for PRACE Project Access. By providing access to some of the fastest supercomputer in Europe, the Call for Proposals targets large-scale, computationally intensive projects that would not be possible or productive without access to PRACE resources.
“The INCITE and PRACE programs give access to increasing resources allowing these technologies to be applied to industrial scale systems. From past and ongoing research examples performed at CERFACS, this presentation highlights the scientific breakthroughs allowed by HPC on exascale machines for reacting flows for gas turbines and explosions in buildings.”
