Participation In International Programs

INRIA-UIUC-NCSA Joint Laboratory for Petascale Computing

Participants : Julien Bigot, Mathias Jacquelin, Cristian Klein, Loris Marchal, Christian Pérez, Yves Robert, Frédéric Vivien.

The Joint Laboratory for Petascale Computing focuses on software challenges found in complex high-performance computers. The Joint Laboratory is based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and includes researchers from the French national computer science institute called INRIA, Illinois' Center for Extreme-Scale Computation, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Much of the Joint Laboratory's work will focus on algorithms and software that will run on Blue Waters and other petascale computers.

French-Japanese ANR-JST FP3C project

This project federates INRIA Saclay, CNRS IRIT, CEA Saclay, INRIA Bordeaux, CNRS Prism, INRIA Rennes on the French side and the University of Tokyo, The University of Tsukuba, Titech, Kyoto University on the Japanese side. The main goal of the project is to develop a programming chain and associated runtime systems which will allow scientific end-users to efficiently execute their applications on post-petascale, highly hierarchical computing platforms making use of multi-core processors and accelerators.

Y. Caniou and J.-Y. L'Excellent participate to this project.

CNRS délégation of Yves Caniou (2010-2011)

Yves Caniou obtained a CNRS delegation for the scholar year 2009-2010, and this delegation has been prolongated for the scholar year 2010-2011. He worked until 2011/09 at the CNRS Japan-French Laboratory in Informatics (JFLI) supervised by Philippe Codognet. The JFLI is located in Tokyo, Japan, and is composed of the Tokyo University, Université Pierre et Marie-Curie (UPMC), the Keio University, the CNRS, the NII partnership.

CADENCED (2009-2012)

The CADENCED project corresponds joint research activities between KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology), IFPEN (Institut Français du Pétrole Energie Nouvelle) and its partners, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS-Lyon) and National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). ENS de Lyon is funded to a total of 1000k€ supporting 6 years of post-doc salary, 2 years of senior researchers and the afferent side-costs. The CADENCED project will address designing a new catalyst for chemistry/petro-chemistry. In view of the extensive use of computing required, a challenging subproject on accelerated high performance computing (HPC) applied to catalysis is also proposed. This latest project deals with porting the VASP software to GPU and developing new QM/MM approaches.
