Sparse Days Meeting 2011

Sparse Days Meeting 2011 at CERFACS
September 6th-7th, 2011

 

We are as usual holding our annual Sparse Days at CERFACS but there are significant building works at CERFACS in May and June and so we will hold this year’s Sparse Days in September, the week after the ParCo and Europar meetings.

As is our custom, we try to have a focus on a topical theme. The “in topic” this year seems to be discussing and formulating strategies for developing software, algorithms, and libraries for the Exascale computers anticipated in 2018-2020 so we particularly welcome any contributions addressing this issue. However, as always feel free to present your latest ideas and work on exploiting sparsity.


 Registration (Deadline : August 22th)

As usual there will be no registration fee although you must register beforehand with Brigitte Yzel (Brigitte.Yzel@cerfacs.fr).

People wanting to speak should email Xavier Vasseur (Xavier.Vasseur@cerfacs.fr) with a title and abstract of up to one page in LaTeX or plain text. Normally talks would be for thirty minutes (including questions) but this could be negotiable (either way). We do not want to have parallel sessions so we will not necessarily be able to accept all submissions. A poster session will be available. Please let us know if you would prefer this mode of presentation.


Accomodation (Deadline : August 22th)

Some low cost accomodation is available but limited at Meteo residences. You should let us know as soon as possible whether you want to stay there. If you require assistance with accomodation you must let Brigitte Yzel know before the deadline: Brigitte.Yzel@cerfacs.fr.

CMIP6 debriefing workshop – May 2021: a stocktaking and foresight exercise that highlighted the major and long-term investment of the CNRM-CERFACS group in the latest climate model intercomparison international exercise

CERFACS |  9 June 2021

The participation of the CNRM-CERFACS group in the international coupled global climate model intercomparison exercise CMIP6 was debriefed on 10 and 11 May. Since the mid-1990s, the various phases of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), supported by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), have enabled climate science to make significant progress, feeding into the IPCC reports, supporting regional climate modelling activities and downstream climate services. On the balance sheet, the participation of CNRM-CERFACS in the extremely demanding CMIP6 exercise has resulted in a large-scale, high-quality contribution in terms of climate simulations, thanks in particular to the strong commitment of researchers and engineers, the quality of support services and national and international collaborations. The activities mainly took place over the period 2013-2020. Initially, the production environment ("workflow") was set up and the coupled climate models were assembled by capitalising on the development of components (atmosphere, ocean and continental surfaces) carried out over the long term. The actual production of simulations was spread over 2018-2020. During the debriefing, perspectives (scientific objectives, model development, organisation) were drawn up with a view to a new participation of CNRM and CERFACS in CMIPRead more


CERFACS Combustion paper on rocket engines selected as Distinguished Paper at the last Int. Symp. on Comb. in Adelaide

CERFACS |  14 April 2021

The paper of C. Laurent 'Heat-release dynamics in a doubly- transcritical LO2/LCH4 cryogenic coaxial jet flame subjected to fuel inflow acoustic modulation’  has been selected at the Distinguished Paper in the Gas Turbine and Rocket Engine Combustion colloquium for the 38th International Symposium on Combustion.
