Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

CERFACS awarded two projects to explore and disseminate new technologies for sustainable programming for exascale

CERFACS is now part of the Excellerat Center of Excellence (https://www.excellerat.eu) and the EPEEC project (https://epeec-project.eu/).
EPEEC aims ot bring european parallel programming technology to the exascale era.  It consist of 10 leaders in research and applications from Europe.

EXCELLERAT is a European Centre of Excellence for Engineering Applications. The Centre is an initiative of several European High Performance Computing Centres to team up to support several key engineering industries in Europe in dealing with complex applications using HPC technologies.  It conducts  research, provides leadership, guidance on good practice, and user support mechanisms . Its goal is to help Europe leverage scientific progress in HPC driven engineering and address current economic and societal challenges.


New regional climate projections for metropolitan France

superadmin |  11 February 2021

Cerfacs collaborated with Météo France and the Institut Pierre-Simon-Laplace (IPSL) to produce the DRIAS climate dataset, which presents a wide range of possible climate changes for metropolitan France for three periods of the 21st century (2021-2050, 2041-2070 and 2071-2100) and three greenhouse gas emission scenarios.

New research group “Theory and Climate”

Mélanie ROCHOUX |  1 February 2021

CECI is involved in the development of a new research group (GDR for “Groupement De Recherche”) entitled “Theory and Climate”. This GDR aims at bringing together the entire community of theorists (mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, data scientists, etc.) working on climate sciences, with the goal of developing and sharing innovative concepts and tools relevant for a better understanding of climate dynamics. This GDR is interdisciplinary and involves several CNRS research institutes as well as most of French organizations working in these fields. CECI plans to contribute to issues related to climate dynamics and applied mathematics such as data assimilation and machine learning. Moreover, there are strong links between this GDR and the LEFE-INSU actions, in which CECI researchers are active (LEFE-IMAGO and LEFE-MANU actions). More information here:Read more
