Inria International Labs

Inria-UIUC-NCSA Joint Laboratory for Petascale Computing

Participants : Eddy Caron, Frédéric Desprez, Olivier Glück, Vincent Lanore, Laurent Lefèvre, Christian Perez, Jonathan Rouzaud-Cornabas.

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.

HPC visibility and strategy Workshop Algeria- Inria – Bull

Under high patronage of his Excellency the Minister for Higher Education and Scientific Research in Association of the Head Office of Scientific Research and Technological Development, this meeting comes within the framework of the partnership between Algeria, Inria and the Bull company, to set up an ambitious program, based on a great show of a material and software infrastructure for the digital simulation which will allow major steps forward in various scientific fields and important progress in term of industrial competitiveness and innovation.

Facing the growing evolution of the complexity of the feigned systems and the used volumes of data, the supercomputing becomes so major. This meeting which will gather about 150 participants, of whom persons in charge of supercomputing Algerian centers, will allow to exchange on problems related to modeling, simulation and HPC. The meeting will be organized around three main points: education research, bridge industry - research and ecosystem.

Eddy Caron (Avalon team) is an expert in the steering committee of the Ecosystem group.
