Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France

Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France
June 28th-July 2nd, 2015

 

The annual CERFACS Sparse Days in 2015 was much enhanced by scheduling it within the CIMI semester (http://cimi-semester-hpc.fr) working in collaboration with our colleagues in the CERFACS-IRIT common lab. There were over 100 attendees, half of whom were from outside France and a quarter from the United States. The meeting was held in St Girons, Ariege entitled « Sparse Days in St Girons III » in recognition of two previous conferences that we organized in St Girons in 1994 and 2003.

The meeting was held from Sunday 28th June until Thursday 2nd July and was memorable both for the excellence of the 40 talks and 2 posters as well as the fantastic hospitality of our hosts in St Girons and Ariege. Such was the success of the meeting that we do not feel inclined to wait as long as ten years to repeat the event and venue so watch this space around 2020 for St Girons IV!

Copies of the presentations at the meeting are available from the website.

CERFACS |  16 September 2021

The General Assembly and TC Meeting took place on 15-16 September 2021. 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


Sophie Valcke from Cerfacs co-authored a new book on atmosphere-ocean modelling

CERFACS |  18 August 2021

new book "Atmosphere-Ocean Modelling - Couling and Couplers” by Prof. Carlos R Mechoso, Prof. Soon-Il An and Dr Sophie Valcke has just been published by World Scientific. The present book fills a void in the current literature by presenting a basic and yet rigorous treatment of how the models of the atmosphere and the ocean are put together into a coupled system. Details are available at  Abstract: Coupled atmosphere-ocean models are at the core of numerical climate models. There is an extraordinarily broad class of coupled atmosphere-ocean models ranging from sets of equations that can be solved analytically to highly detailed representations of Nature requiring the most advanced computers for execution. The models are applied to subjects including the conceptual understanding of Earth’s climate, predictions that support human activities in a variable climate, and projections aimed to prepare society for climate change. The present book fills a void in the current literature by presenting a basic and yet rigorous treatment of how the models of the atmosphere and the ocean are put together into a coupled system. The text of the book is divided into chapters organized according to complexity of the components that are coupled. Two full chapters are dedicated to current efforts on the development of generalist couplers and coupling methodologies all over the worldRead more
