Challenges and Opportunities in Academic HPC Systems Research in 2030

Eurolab4HPC supporting HPC innovation. Expert view: Martin Schulz Power bound computing – use more nodes, etc. and find best configuration (makes more sense with the slides) Network contention: harder to predict execution times but cheaper in terms of hardware. Manage complex workflows Monitor the application and hardware stack at all points. [Seems more comprehensive than …

Solar Collisons at the limit of HPC

Visualisation of results, not during. Spatial and temporal discretisation of complex equations -> errors Chemistry of dust: hard to do (q.v. Sheffield) 300,000 Blue Waters (NCSA) Not all simulations scale (gravity) Simulations on different scales. Simulations of binary stars and their ultimate end. Nebula formation. Takes a long time (6 months wall clock) due to …

Welcome to the HPC Special Interest Group

The HPC Special Interest Group aims to promote the use of High Performance Computing (HPC) in academia and industry, by members working together and promoting best practice in HPC provision, management and support. The group organises a range of meetings, events and workshops that are relevant to all current or potential providers of University HPC …
