MIHPS, Master of science in Informatics, High Performance Computing and Simulation

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.

Exascale Computing Research Lab
a focus on software applications for exascale, open to external partners

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.

European industry and research centres join forces to create a European Technology Platform for High Performance Computing

Major European suppliers of High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies, ALLINEA, ARM, BULL, CAPS Entreprise, EUROTECH, PARTEC, STMICROELECTRONICS and XYRATEX associated with HPC research centres BSC, CEA, CINECA, Fraunhofer, Forschungszentrum Juelich and LRZ have decided to combine forces to create a European Technology Platform (ETP), building on the previous work of PROSPECT and TERATEC.

An essential factor in corporate competitiveness

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.

R&D Collaborative Projects

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.
