The 11th PRACE SHAPE Call for proposals was opened from 1 April 2020 until 1 June 2020. We were very pleased to receive proposals from ten different SMEs from across Europe – the highest number
Each year the HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards are determined by HPCwire’s readers across the HPC community, to recognize the most outstanding individuals, organizations, products and technologies in the industry.
We highlight some of the nominated persons, projects or initiatives relating to PRACE or to PRACE partners the text below.
The world’s battle against the invisible enemy known as the coronavirus continues on all fronts with HPC making a significant contribution. PRACE has now awarded thirty projects under its Fast Track Call for Proposals to support the mitigation of the impact of the pandemic. The ten referenced in this article will receive 91 712 000 core hours and 350 000 node hours on various world-class systems around Europe.
Despite decades of research, current climate models still contain a substantial degree of uncertainty that hampers accurate projections of climate change effects such as sea level rise and extreme weather events. Recently, however, climate scientists
Today, four leading research organisations formed a pioneering collaboration that will work to overcome challenges related to the use of high-performance computing (HPC) to support large, data-intensive science projects. The members of the collaboration are CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research; SKAO, the organisation leading the development of the Square Kilometre Array radio-telescope; GÉANT, the pan-European network and services provider for research and education; and PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe.
Fluid dynamics simulations are a valuable tool for improving the design of aircraft engines and rendering them more efficient. Now, a team of researchers has built the first high-fidelity simulation of a full aircraft engine including several coupled engine components — a milestone that provides insights into the interactions between the individual components and will help to improve future simulations.
At the 37th PRACE Council Meeting on 17 June 2020 – which was held remotely to account for the travel restrictions and physical distancing rules due to the COVID-19 pandemic – the PRACE Members elected a new Chair and Vice-Chair. The new incumbents will fulfil their mandates for two years.
The EU’s war against COVID-19 continues and PRACE awarded another ten projects with a total of 227 578 000 core hours under the Fast Track Call for Proposals to support the mitigation of the impact of the pandemic. With the accumulation of knowledge about this novel coronavirus, scientists are discovering new possibilities and tools to exploit its weaknesses and PRACE offers the most powerful supercomputers for their breakthroughs.
Scientists at the Technology University of Denmark have reinvented the design of suspension bridges. Their novel concept not only enables much longer bridge spans but also reduces the amount of building material — and with this the environmental impact of the construction.
