EoCoE-II European Center of Excellence


The European center of excellence EoCoE-II brings together 20 partners from 7 European countries around exascale computing for energy-oriented numerical models.
As a follow-up to the proof-of-principle phase of EoCoE (energy-oriented center of excellence), EoCoE-II will build on its unique, established role at the crossroads of HPC and renewable energy to accelerate the adoption of production, storage and distribution of clean electricity.
Involved in 2 work packages, Cerfacs will conduct research around scalable multigrid solvers for the gyrokinetic fusion code GyselaX on the one hand, and surrogate models for uncertainty quantification and data assimilation with 2D hydrodynamics solvers on the other hand.



EXCELLERAT European Center of Excellence and EPEEC project 


CERFACS is now part of the EXCELLERAT Center of Excellence (https://www.excellerat.eu) and the EPEEC project (https://epeec-project.eu).

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.

EPEEC aims ot bring european parallel programming technology to the exascale era.  It consist of 10 leaders in research and applications from Europe.



CoE RAISE European Center of Excellence 


The European Center of Excellence in Exascale Computing “Research on AI- and Simulation-Based Engineering at Exascale” (CoE RAISEhttps://www.coe-raise.eu/) is a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme, European research infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures). In RAISE, researchers from science and industry develop novel, scalable Artificial Intelligence technologies towards Exascale along representative use-cases from Engineering and Natural Sciences.


Sparse Days in Saint-Girons IV

Brigitte Yzel |  29 March 2022

Sparse Days Meeting 2022 🗓️  20-22 June 2022  @ Saint-Girons, France   🌐   Sparse Days 2022 will be held in Saint-Girons, Ariège, from 20-22 June. This enhanced version of Sparse Days is being co-organized by Cerfacs and ENSEEIHT/IRIT. It will be the fourth meeting in Saint- Girons following the tradition of the previous meetings held in 1994, 2003, and 2015. The tradition involves coupling our highly successful annual technical meeting with the ambience and hospitality of this wonderful Pyrenean town which encourages fruitful informal exchanges between participants.    Read more

Press releases on the NextSim EuroHPC project

CERFACS |  9 February 2022

Press talks about the NextSim EuroHPC project. CERFACS is involved in two major points. The first topic is to extend the numerical capabilities of the code to perform scale-resolving simulations of jet noise configurations on exascale supercomputers. The second focus is to exploit data from these simulations by extracting or visualising relevant physical information during the computation. CERFACS is involved in the NextSim project (). The primary objective is to increase the capabilities of Computational Fluid Dynamics tools on extreme-scale parallel computing platforms for aeronautical design. This project has received funding from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement N° 956104. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Spain, France, Germany. This project has received funding from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) under grant agreement N° ANR-20-EHPC-0002-02. For more information, please visit Read more
