JSC Participates in Mont-Blanc
In October, the EU-funded project Mont-Blanc started as one of three exascale projects within the research theme "Information and communications technologies" of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The objectives of Mont-Blanc are the development of a fully functional energy-efficient HPC prototype based on the low-power embedded ARM technology, the design of a next-generation HPC system in order to overcome the limitations identified in the prototype system, and the development of a portfolio of exascale applications to be run on this new generation of HPC systems. The project is coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputer Centre; the partners from industry are ARM, GNODAL, and BULL, and from research CNRS, Forschungszentrum Jülich, GENCI, LRZ, and CINECA.
JSC contributes the performance analysis tool Scalasca and exascale applications from different areas of research like the parallel Coulomb solver PEPC, the massively parallel multi-particle collision software MP2C, the software for molecular mechanics of proteins SMMP, and the protein folding and aggregation simulator ProFASi.
