EU FP7 PRACE-2IP – Second Implementation project of Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe

EU FP7 PRACE-2IPThe purpose of the PRACE RI is to provide a sustainable high-quality infrastructure for Europe that can meet the most demanding needs of European HPC user communities through the provision of user access to the most powerful HPC systems available worldwide at any given time. In tandem with access to Tier-0 systems, the PRACE-2IP project will foster the coordination between national HPC resources (Tier-1 systems) to best meet the needs of the European HPC user community. To ensure that European scientific and engineering communities have access to leading edge supercomputers in the future, the PRACE-2IP project evaluates novel architectures, technologies, systems, and software. Optimizing and scaling of application for Tier-0 and Tier-1 systems is a core service of PRACE.

Within this project (September 2011 – August 2014), Avalon participated in particular to the workpackage on novel programming techniques that aims to perform research and development on auto-tuned runtime environments for future multi-petascale and exascale systems.

Start date: September 2011

Duration: 3 years
