Sparse Days Meeting 2006 at CERFACS

 

June 15th-16th 2006

A two-day meeting on sparse matrix matters at CERFACS, Toulouse, France, June 15th-16th, 2006.

After the excitement of hosting CSC’05 last year, we return to our normal pattern of holding our regular meeting “Sparse Days at CERFACS”. This meeting will start mid-morning on Thursday June 15th and finish mid-afternoon on the 16th. The main theme this year will be on “optimization”.

Medal of the Academy of Air and Space: 3 CERFACS researchers awarded !

Brigitte Yzel |  11 July 2022

The Air and Space Academy awarded Carlos Pérez Arroyo, Gabriel Staffelbach and Jérôme Dombard with the Vermeil medal 2022, to honor the excellence of their work in the realization of the FULLEST project, the first high-fidelity simulation of an aircraft engine. Thanks to PRACE for awarding the access to the Joliot-Curie supercomputer (GENCI hosted at CEA/TGCC) and to DGAC for the funding of the ATOM project (No 2018-39) led by SAFRAN Tech. FULLEST also benefited from developments done in European projects:  EXCELLERAT (H2020 823691) and EPEEC (H2020 801051).  Read more
