Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (5 hours)

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.

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
