Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Online training sessions

 

The CERFACS face-to-face training program in Toulouse attracts each year hundreds of engineers and researchers, showing the need for high-level formation in the field of High Performance Computing. This program is now accompanied by an online training program, based on Small Private Online Courses (SPOC) principles.

What is a SPOC?

Small Private Online Courses (SPOC) are:

  • fully online training sessions on a particular topic,
  • divided into consecutive weeks (typically 3 to 6),
  • based on learning activities delivered each week,
  • requiring typically 2 hours of work per week.

Moreover, all our SPOC are closed by a live and interactive conference.

Unlike a MOOC, the number of participants in a SPOC is specific and limited. Our SPOC are designed for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who want to learn more about a particular topic.

Why choosing SPOC?

Here are 5 good reasons to choose SPOC:

  1. No need to travel! You can follow our SPOC from anywhere.
  2. Take your time to understand. You have 7 days to complete each week’s activities.
  3. Work when you want to: the 3 hours of work can be distributed over the week, depending on your schedule.
  4. Learn from and with the other participants during the learning activities.
  5. Interact at all times, with all other participants, ask questions and participate to forums and debates.

Requirements

Our SPOCs are hosted by the MOOC-it platform, they require a satisfactory internet connection and access to the YouTube site in order to view the videos.

Terms of payment

Credit card only, except for our associates.

Next sessions

All our courses are given in English.


Code Coupling with OASIS3-MCT 

Next date : March 21st – April 6th 2022

Please contact us if you would be interested in an earlier session

Deadline for registration: March 7h 2022 and you need to have installed OASIS3-MCT on your platform before registering

OASIS3-MCT is a coupling library that can be used to exchange information between different codes modelling the different components of the Earth System, e.g. the ocean or the atmosphere. In this training, mixing theory, videos, quizzes and hands-on, you will learn how to use OASIS3-MCT. Your goal will be to instrument two toy models to set-up a real coupled model exchanging coupling fields.

For Europeans, this on-line training is currently covered by the ESiWACE2 Centre of Excellence.

For people outside Europe, students : 120 € – Cerfacs shareholders : 180 € – others : 240 € (Taxes not included)

Details and pre-registration


Fundamentals of thermo-acoustic instabilities

Next date : From Monday 25th April, 2022 to Sunday 22th May, 2022

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training

Coupling between acoustic waves and flames has become a central issue in the development of many modern combustion systems. This course presents the theoretical background needed to tackle such problems.

Price: students : 240 € – Cerfacs shareholders : 360 € – others : 480 € (Taxes not included)

Details and pre-registration


Fundamentals of Turbulent Combustion

Next date : From Monday 17th October, 2022 to Sunday 4th December, 2022

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training

This online course describes the fundamental elements required to understand modern tools for combustion simulation. It covers the first six chapters of the textbook Theoretical and numerical combustion by Poinsot and Veynante. Each participant will receive a copy of this book when the SPOC course will begin. The course enables engineers and researchers to understand the physics of combustion and the various methods used to simulate it. It will allow students to understand modern simulation methods used to analyze laminar and turbulent flames.

Price: students : 420 € – Cerfacs shareholders : 630 € – others : 840 € (Taxes not included)

Details and pre-registration


Fundamentals of Lattice Boltzmann Method

Next dates to be defined in 2022

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training

The Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), derived from the gas kinetic theory, has emerged as an alternative to the resolution of Navier-Stokes equations using computational fluid dynamics. LBM is an unsteady method and has several strengths: (1) easy mesh generation on complex geometry and (2) allows massively parallel computing. This training aims at providing basic knowledge on how LBM works.

Price: students : 240 € – Cerfacs shareholders : 360 € – others : 480 € (Taxes not included)

Details and pre-registration [closed]

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
