Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Sparse Days Meeting 2010

Sparse Days Meeting 2010 at CERFACS
June 15th-17th,  2010

 

The Sparse Days this year will be combined with the final meeting of the ANR Solstice Programme. The main themes for this project were: direct methods, hybrid methods, partitioning and ordering, and web access to codes and matrices (GRID-TLSE). Thus we will make these the very non-restrictive theme for our 2010 Sparse Days meeting. The meeting will start on the morning of Tuesday June 15th and finish around midday on Thursday June 17th; the exact schedule will depend on the papers accepted for presentation.

Continuity of activity of the Cerfacs during the Covid-19 pandemic

superadmin |  20 March 2020

On Monday 16 March 2020, in the context of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 epidemic, Cerfacs decided to reorganize its activities by implementing a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and deploying teleworking facilities for all its employees. All staff members thus continue to carry out their full mission.Read more


A fiery wakeup call for climate science

superadmin |  26 February 2020

The extent of the recent wildfires in Australia significantly exceeded the projections of any member of the multi-model CMIP archive.  This highlights how current multi-model ensembles may be under-representing the risks of natural disasters under climate change.  Limited coupled system process representation in most models coupled with a lack of parameter uncertainty exploration means that some risks are not explored by the existing international multi-model framework.  This calls for a reassessment of how to focus climate model development on providing robust risk quantification for those impacts which most directly affect society.
