Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Training at CERFACS

Cerfacs offers high -level training courses in all its key fields of expertise. Training sessions are in two formats:  face-to-face, at Toulouse, or online.

 

Face-to-face training sessions

Since 2011, Cerfacs has set up advanced face-to-face training sessions in scientific computing aimed at PhDs, engineers and researchers, from academic and applied fields. Trainings are given by Cerfacs researchers and engineers and are either dealing with general HPC topics and applied mathematics or with dedicated disciplines of importance to Cerfacs. Duration is typically between 1 and 5 days.

Practical trainings to software developed or co-developed by Cerfacs (AVBP, OpenPalm, DSCLIM, CESC, OASIS) are included in this program.

Online training sessions – SPOC

Since 2017, Cerfacs has created an online training program, based on Small Private Online Courses (SPOC) principles. Theses online courses are 100% are fully online, divided into consecutive weeks (typically 3 to 6) and require typically 3 hours of work per week.

67 climate modelling groups use OASIS3-MCT to assemble more than 80 coupled applications

superadmin |  10 September 2019

OASIS3-MCT is a coupler of codes developed at Cerfacs and used around the world, mainly for climate modelling applications. Our last survey confirms that OASIS3-MCT is used by 67 modelling groups to assemble more than 80 different coupled applications over the 5 continents. These applications include global or regional configurations of ocean and atmosphere models but also sea ice, sea level, wave, ocean biogeochemistry, land, vegetation, river routing, hydrological and atmospheric chemistry models. OASIS3-MCT is used in 5 of the 7 European Earth System Models participating to the 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) that produces the climate simulations forming the basis of the next report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)”Read more
