TERATEC brings together top international experts in simulation and high performance computing, making it the major event in France and in Europe in this field. It reaffirms the strategic importance of these technologies for developing industrial competitiveness and innovation capacity.

The TERATEC Forum welcomes more than 1000 attendees, highlighting the technological and industrial dynamism of HPC and the essential role that France plays in this field. The participation and the testimony of senior industrial and ICT leaders, the diversity and the high level of the technical workshops, the representativeness of exhibitors and innovation offers displayed, are assets for all responsible concerned by simulation and high performance computing.

Request your free access badge. Meet the main providers of HPC technologies, industry players and the most advanced users to investigate ongoing developments, as well as short-term and mid-term perspectives in these key areas for industrial competitiveness and innovation.

During the plenary sessions, leading technology providers will present their technological developments and industrial users will discuss the issues of supercomputing and simulation in their domain.

We will welcome professor Charbel FARHAT, Stanford University, who will present an overview of the evolution of HPC, Dr. Sudip DOSANJH, Division Director, NERSC (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), David LECOMBER, CTO of ALLINEA, Stefano ODORIZZI, CEO and president of ENGINSOFT, Jean-François MINSTER, scientific director of TOTAL, Régis REAU, scientific director of AIR LIQUIDE and Ewan BIRNEY, EMBL/EBI (European Bioinformatics Institute). They will be joined by other speakers who will present major technological innovations in the field of simulation.

We will also have the participation of public officials, including Louis GALLOIS, Commissaire général à l’investissementt, which will close the debates of the day .

The main market players and recognized experts will be involved in workshops whose aim is to take on emerging technologies and new areas of application of HPC.

This year we propose three workshops technology oriented (tools design and optimization of complex systems, energy efficiency of HPC, HPC and big data) and three workshops usage oriented (HPC in materials simulation, HPC in biology and health, Modeling and simulation for smart cities).

Embedded and Mechatronics Complex Systems: Trends and Challenges
This workshop will be dedicated to technologies, methods & state-of-the-art tools for complex mechatronics embedded systems design and optimization. This workshop will address the strategic vision of research labs, industrials from the aeronautical sector, but also techno-providers in the hardware field (leading-edge embedded high performance computing technologies) and software (new algorithms paradigms).

This workshop is chaired by Jacques DUYSENS (SILKAN), Gérard POIRIER (DASSAULT AVIATION) and Christian SAGUEZ (TERATEC) with the participation of Clément FORTIN (CRIAQ), Bruno MONSUEZ (ENSTA ParisTech), Laurent JULIARD (KALRAY), Philippe RAVIER (SILKAN) and Thierry CHEVALIER (AIRBUS)

Materials Simulation
This workshop intends to review current engineering practices in three industrial fields for which this type of simulation is particularly relevant: mechanics, chemicals, and biotechnology. We will present simulations performed on the CEA's Tera 100 supercomputer to demonstrate the possibilities of HPC under such extreme conditions. The workshop will conclude with a presentation of CECAM and its network of European researchers.

This workshop is chaired by Gilles ZERAH (CEA) with the participation of Laurent SOULARD (CEA), Massimo NORO (UNILEVER), Dominic TILDESLEY (CECAM) and Benoit SCHNELL (MICHELIN)

Big Data and HPC
The Big Data session will try to cast a light on the challenges arising from large volumes and short processing times in relation with their HPC needs. Actors from the scientific and industrial worlds will illustrate those two aspects. They will also explain the relation between HPC and their Big Data usage.

This workshop is chaired by Ange CARUSO (EDF), Georges HEBRAIL (EDF) and Guillaume COLIN DE VERDIERE (CEA) with the participation of Fernando VELEZ (SAP), Bob JONES (CERN), Marie-Luce PICARD (EDF R&D), Julien LAUGEL (MFG LABS), Parviz PEIRAVI (INTEL Corporation) and Philippe GIBERT (ORANGE Labs R&D)

Energy Efficiency of HPC systems
In this session we propose to focus on the latest technology advances targeted for the largest HPC centres, on the techniques based on system software for power control and on the potential role played by the application layer. On this last point in particular, some of the latest research topics on power aware algorithms, characterisation techniques for energy profiling and load balancing methods will be presented.

This workshop is chaired by Marie-Christine SAWLEY (INTEL Exascale Labs) with the participation of John SHALF (NERSC - Lawrence Berkeley Labs), Vincent KELLER (EPFL - Center for Advanced Modeling Science), Rosa BADIA (BARCELONA SUPERCOMPUTING CENTRE), Benoit PRADELLE (UNIVERSITE DE VERSAILLES SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES), Alex RAMIREZ (UNIVERSITA POLITECNICA DE CATALUNYA), Sébastien CABANIOLS (HP) and Jean-Pierre PANZIERA (BULL)

HPC in Biology and Health
The aim of this workshop organized in partnership with the MEDICEN competitiveness cluster is to bring a general foundation for future initiatives combining healthcare and HPC in two specific fields of application: integrative biology (particularly in researching and designing new medications), the use of medical imaging and virtual reality techniques.

This workshop is chaired by François BALLET (MEDICEN) and Christian SAGUEZ (TERATEC) with the participation of Philippe GUILLET (SANOFI), Denis LE BIHAN (CEA) and Luc SOLER (IRCAD)

Modeling and simulation to support sustainable cities
This workshop organized in partnership with the ADVANCITY competitiveness cluster will call on specialists from various fields—city planning, architecture, construction techniques, natural hazards, and atmospheric pollution modeling—to attempt to determine how modeling and simulation can be applied to the transformation of cities.

This workshop is chaired by Vincent COUSIN (ADVANCITY) and Etienne DE POMMERY (ESI Group) with the participation of Hervé CHARRUE (CSTB),  Souheil SOUBRA (CSTB), Jean-Marc CREPEL (RENAULT), Franck BOUTTE (Agence Franck Boutté Consultants), Fabienne TROLARD (INRA) Trino BELTRAN (BOUYGUES BATIMENT International), Fabien BROCHETON (NUMTECH) and Philippe BISCH (SYNTEC Ingénierie)

2013 ScilabTEC, the fifth edition of the Scilab Users' Day will be held in parallel with the participation of Thierry MAROT (DGA), Jean-Louis NICKS (CNES), Stéphane JIMENEZ (ARCELORMITTAL), Guillaume DUTILLEUX (CETE), Silvia POLES (OPENEERING), Jean-Pierre BOVEE (SANOFI), Emmanuel SOHM (SDI), François BODIN (CAPS ENTREPRISE), Claude GOMEZ (SCILAB ENTERPRISES) and Gérard POIRIER ( DASSAULT AVIATION).

During these two days, there will be an exhibition covering the whole HPC industry. Systems manufacturers and software vendors, integrators and distributors, service providers, academic and laboratory researchers, public and private sector developers will present their latest HPC innovations.

Exhibitors list updated May 15, 2013

A Systematic Paris-Region Village at the heart of 2013 Teratec Forum
You will be able to discuss with new innovative companies from the SYSTEMATIC ecosystem and Working Groups: definitely from the Systems Design and Development Tools WG, but also from the Free & Open Source Software WG and the Smart Energy Management WG. All these innovation players are very active today to meet the future HPC industrial challenges and give a new societal momentum in this context.
