1st Dissemination Workshop

Towards Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for weather and climate Prediction at Exascale - Status and Prospects

The EU H2020-funded project ESCAPE-2 will develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather and climate prediction systems. It continues the pioneering work of the ESCAPE project. The project aims to attack all three sources of enhanced computational performance at once, namely 

  1. developing and testing bespoke numerical methods that optimally trade off accuracy, resilience and performance, 
  2. developing generic programming approaches that ensure code portability and performance portability, 
  3. testing performance on HPC platforms offering different processor technologies.

The 1st Dissemination Workshop aims to introduce ESCAPE-2 to the community and present first results, whilst also providing an opportunity for the community to provide feedback and get involved in the developments of the ESCAPE-2 project.

The workshop will be organised according to the following topics:

  • Algorithms and Mathematics
  • Programming Models and Domain Specific Languages
  • Weather and Climate Benchmarks
  • Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification
  • Links with other efforts in the community

Registration is free of charge, but spaces are limited. The detailed programme will be published on this workshop website in due course.

Workshop Schedule: 21st October 2019 13:00 to 22nd October 2019 17:30

Registration: via EventBrite, deadline 15th September 2019

Workshop Location: ECMWF, Reading, Shinfield Park, RG2 9AX, UK - Lecture Theatre
