Presentation of the call for projects in HPC and Simulation A budget of 150 million euros has been set aside for "core industry" calls for projects by the French National Fund for a Digital Society, as part of its program to invest in the future.
Teratec and its partners presented on October 7 the call for projects in HPC 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.
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 2014 The ninth edition of TERATEC Forum will take place on July 1 & 2, 2014 at the Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, Paris area)
On July 1, the plenary sessions will focus on the technological challenges of Simulation and High Performance Computing and on the diversity of uses of HPC with the participation of representatives from the political, economic and academic worlds, and advanced international industrial users and leading technology suppliers.
July 2, technical workshops will review emerging technologies and new adomains of high performance computing applications.
During these two days, there will be an exhibition of around eighty booths of the major simulation and HPC players. Software manufacturers and producers, integrators and distributors, service providers, academic and laboratory researchers, public and private sector developers, etc. will present their latest innovations
"The most remarkable change is probably how many new industrial sectors are using high performance computing and simulation" stated Pascal Faure, director general of the French Ministry of Economy at the Teratec Forum 2014 plenary session opening, "simulation is becoming affordable for small and medium sized businesses and industries" and that we must "underscore the technological excellence France has achieved in the field of high performance computing"
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.
