Abstract

In this training course, the architectures of today’s supercomputers are described. The processor evolution as well as the main types of architectures are then presented. Finally, the methods and tools for code optimisation on these supercomputers are described.

Target participants

This training session is for students, engineers, physicists and computer scientists wishing to discover today’s supercomputer architectures and to learn methods and tools for code optimisation on these supercomputers.

Prerequisites

None.

One Cerfacs’ proposal accepted in PRACE 15th call

superadmin |  4 December 2017

This study focuses on Hall-effect thrusters, which were first invented in the 1960s. Although such systems have been extensively studied, the detailed physics of the magnetized plasmas in these thrusters is very complex and several plasma processes that have direct influence on the thruster...Read more


CECI Contribution to CNRS’ “Petit Illustré” on Complex Systems (CNRS Edition)

ROGEL |  12 October 2017

CECI (Cerfacs, CNRS) and IMFT are both working on numerical modelling of the processes causing river flooding and their uncertainties. A common contribution on this subject, signed by Sophie Ricci and Hélène Roux, appears in Vol. 34 of the "Petit Illustré" collection, edited by CNRS.Read more
