JSC Hosted 4th JLESC Workshop

From 2-4 December 2015, the 4th JLESC Workshop took place at the Gustav-Stresemann-Institut, in Bonn-Bad Godesberg, organized this time by JSC. This event was the second meeting in 2015 of the Joint Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing (JLESC) and the first one hosted by JSC. The Joint Laboratory brings together researchers from the Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (Inria, France), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA, USA), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL, USA), Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC, Spain), RIKEN AICS (Japan) and JSC.

With more than 100 scientists and students from the six JLESC partners, the meeting in Bad Godesberg covered a broad range of topics crucial for today's and tomorrow's supercomputing. Together with the other participants, scientists and PhD students from JSC and German partner universities caught up on cutting-edge research from the fields of resilience, I/O and programming models as well as numerical methods, applications, big data and performance tools. Besides the talks, the participants had time for fruitful discussions about their ongoing and future research during project meetings, open microphone sessions and a social event. In addition, PhD students and postdocs were able to attend the first JLESC "young scientist dinner" to exchange ideas in a less formal (and very well-received) setting.

Organized by Inria, the next JLESC workshop will take place in Lyon from 27-28 June 2016, continuing this successful series of internationally recognized and valued biannual meetings. This workshop will be followed by a two-day summer school on resilience. For more information on JLESC, the workshops and JSC's participation, visit http://www.fz-juelich.de/ias/jsc/jlesc.
