PRACE – The European HPC Infrastructure at ISC 2014
PRACE branched out at ISC’14 with more activities and highlights than ever. PRACE was present at both the exhibition and the conference part of ISC’14 with the PRACE-ISC Award, sessions on HPC in Europe and HPC Communication, the PRACE booth with its popular Treasure Hunt, and more!
At the Opening Session of ISC’14, on Monday 23 June 2014, the PRACE-ISC Award was announced for the paper entitled “Sustained Petascale Performance of Seismic Simulations with SeisSol on SuperMUC”. The authors presented their work later that same day showing an extreme scalability of the ADER code on the full configuration of SuperMUC at LRZ (Germany), one of the 6 Tier0 systems of PRACE.
PRACE at ISC’14 Exhibition
The PRACE booth attracted more than 230 visitors with various activities. International press visited PRACE on Monday evening, just before the official opening of the ISC’14 Exhibition during which PRACE invited visitors to a cocktail and informal networking.
The PRACE Booth Team was present to inform on the results, activities and plans of the PRACE.
Like last year PRACE organised a Treasure Hunt with a total of 122 participants. This year’s winners were Pawel Dziekonski of WCSS, Poland and Pablo Reble of RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
Each Treasure Hunt draw was accompanied by a mini-presentation giving a quick overview of two of PRACE’s activities: PRACE Industrial Access and SHAPE, and the PRACE training offer and portal.
