Chaire Mobilité dans une ville durable

Ce mercredi 9 juin a marqué le lancement de la 14e Chaire de la Fondation Rennes 1 en présence du Comité de Pilotage dédié : titulaires, partenaires et équipe académique se sont réunis afin de signer la poursuite pour 3 ans supplémentaires (2021-2024) des travaux de la Chaire « Mobilité dans une ville durable », créée en 2017.

EXDCI-2 deliverables available online

Through the joint action of PRACE and ETP4HPC, EXDCI-2 mobilises the European HPC stakeholders. The project builds upon the achievements of EXDCI and continues its participation in the support of the European HPC Ecosystem.

EXDCI2 report: Assessment for legacy code and software modernisation

Many of today’s applications running on large HPC systems are codes, that have been in development for more than two (or even three) decades, programmed partially in “old fashioned” languages, such as Fortran, and which were not designed for scale and to parallelise for system architectures as we know them today in HPC. We refer to these codes as “legacy codes”.

In the advent of a new generation of HPC systems, the question is whether these codes are still relevant to their owners, and if yes, how these codes can be rewritten to run efficiently on the future HPC systems, and what effort this would require. This document casts a light on the European portfolio of legacy codes through the analysis of a survey that has been distributed amongst European code developers.

Towards Sustainable HPC

HPC has not been designed as an environmental-friendly technology. Its objective is rather to deliver high performance and high precision numerical tools for science, highly optimised for delivering calculation results as fast as possible. Today, as any other societal domain, the HPC community has to accept its share of work in reducing e-waste and energy consumption.

A position paper is available here.

AQMO Workshop

During this workshop (conducted in French), aimed at stakeholders involved in the fields of air quality monitoring and high-performance computing, as well as at citizens and metropolitan elected officials, the partners of the AQMO consortium reflected on the actions carried out over 2 years and presented the results that have emerged from this project through a series of presentations and question-and-answer sessions.
