Save the Date ! TERATEC Forum 2016
June 28 & 29, 2016 - Ecole Polytechnique
New! The 2015 Digital Simulation Awards The Digital Simulation Awards, organised by TERATEC in partnership with L'Usine Nouvelle, were a great success.
Five categories of Awards were established to highlight the diversity of uses and actors in the world of HPC and simulation: Start Up - SMEs - Collaboration between great company and SMEs - Innovation and Jury Prize. Nominations were many, the choice was difficult! Each award was given by two renowned journalists of L'Usine Nouvelle, accompanied by one of the sponsors of The Awards: ATOS, COMSOL, HP, INRIA and TERATEC.
Interviews and testimonies, interventions by public authorities, minutes of Teratec Forum, discussions between major players, market analysis, ...... find all the HPC, Big Data and Digital Simulation news on the WebTV Teratec .
2nd call for High Performance Computing and Simulation projects On January 12, 2015, the second call for projects supporting R&D in the field high performance computing and simulation opened.
This second round embraces the priorities of the "Supercomputers" plan's road map, which was approved on May 7, 2014 by the steering committee for the New "Industrial France," with President Hollande in attendance.
MIHPS is a Master of Science devoted to the training of top scientists able to acquire two major technological developments:
the systematic use of parallelism (from multicore computers to supercomputers)
the use of numerical simulation industry and research. A major feature of this master is to give future graduates a multidisciplinary skill, an expertise of high performance computing and parallel computing and an expertise of modelling / simulation techniques.
The Exascale Computing Research centre (ECR) is the fruit of the collaboration between CEA, GENCI, the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Intel. The mission of ECR is to conduct R&D studies in co-operation with European researchers on applications that are critical for industries and HPC users from European universities.
High Performance Simulation is both an essential factor in corporate competitiveness and an absolutely vital tool for major scientific challenges. Thus it enables experts to design products more rapidly which are better suited to customers’ requirements and furthermore to analyse and understand complex phenomena.
Promoting High Performance Simulation is, therefore, a priority both for the industrial world as well as for the academic community and provides also an opportunity for IT specialized companies.
With this objective in mind major players in these different fields have created the Ter@tec association together with local authorities keen to develop technological activities in their territory.
TERATEC Forum 2015 - Report June 23 & 24, 2015 - Ecole Polytechnique
By bringing together more than 1300 professionals on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Forum TERATEC illustrated once again the technological and industrial dynamism of HPC and the important role played by France in this field.
Plenary sessions focused on technological challenges of HPC, Big Data, Simulation and the diversity of uses of supercomputing with the participation of personalities from the political, economic and academic world, international leading industrial users and suppliers leaders in these technologies.
The exhibitionshowcased the HPC & Big Data industry across its entire value chain. System manufacturers and software vendors, integrators and distributors, service providers, academic and research organizations, public and private sector developers presented their latest HPC innovations.
«En regroupant plus de milles professionnels du Big Data venus du monde entier, le Forum Teratec est la preuve du dynamisme technologique et de la France dans ce domaine » a déclaré Emmanuel MACRON, Ministre de l'Économie, de l'Industrie et du Numérique, lors de l'ouverture du Forum Teratec 2015. «Au cours des prochaines années, nous devons devenir le hub européen de la recherche. C'est l'un des objectifs principaux que je nous assigne».
COLOC - The COncurrency and LOcality Challenge The objective of this european project is to model data location according to the relevant hardware architecture and interconnection network, so as to use it both in the platform resource management tools such as SLURM, and in communication libraries such as MPI, in applications and in profiling tools to optimize performance thanks to the optimized placement of processes and data.
DATASCALE - Big Data et Calcul Haute performance Le projet DataScale fédère un éventail de partenaires très divers – grands laboratoires de recherche, PME et grandes entreprises – dont l’ambition commune est de créer des solutions Big Data efficaces, adaptées à des cas réels d’utilisation dans le domaine du calcul haute performance.
H4H-PERFCLOUD - Performance for the Cloud
The PERFCLOUD project aims to develop new technologies (hardware and software) in order to offer the architecture with the best possible performance for its cost for HPC applications. This R&D project by the FSN has been integrated into the H4H project to take advantage of synergies in sponsorship and optimization of applications on hybrid architectures.
ICOS - High definition 3D medical imaging
The ICOS project, supported by the Cap Digital, Medicen and Systematic competitiveness clusters, develops augmented reality and designs new 3D imaging tools applied to medicine, which are guided remotely by surgeons using gestures and vocal commands.
MECASIF - Modèles réduits pour la Conception Amont de Systèmes Industriels Fiables Le projet MECASIF a pour objectif de produire des avancées significatives concernant la génération et la mise en place industrielle de Modèles Réduits non linéaires validés dans un certain nombre de domaines clé de la physique, avancées capables de prendre place directement dans les workflows de conception existant dans l’industrie.
RICHELIEU - Accelerate science-oriented programming languages
The RICHELIEU project is a good track. The connection between Scilab and LLVM/VMKit has been successfully performed, the first step to provide Just-In-Time compilation in Scilab. In parallel, the first version of the static analyzer scilint will be soon published.
TerriS@nté - Digital technologies to improve health in the Greater Paris area
Sponsored by the Agence Régionale de Santé (ARS) in Ile-de-France with support from Medicen, the TerriS@nté project is above all a medical one, aimed at serving the entire population with specific solutions for identified high-priority groups (chronic patients and cancer patients, pregnant women and newborns, youth, and the elderly faced with a loss of autonomy).
TIMCO - Technologie pour « in-memory computing »
En exploitant les possibilités d’un prototype de serveur très grande mémoire, comprenant 16 processeurs et jusqu'à 21 Téraoctets de mémoire rendue cohérente par un ASIC, le consortium vise à exploiter au mieux le potentiel que promet le traitement de données massives.
TERATEC brings together different actors of the High Performance Simulation. In a place unique in France, it promotes exchanges and collaborations around the larger computing resources in Europe. Created at the initiative of CEA-DAM Ile de France, TERATEC offers its partners research and most advanced technologies in the field of numerical simulation.
