  • Title: Transnational Access | HPC-Europa2 Project | Access to some of Europe's biggest supercomputers | an I3 funded by the EU - DG Research
    Descriptive info: Home.. What is HPC-Europa2's Transnational Access activity?.. Transnational Access is an inter-disciplinary research visit programme.. It enables researchers working in any eligible country in Europe (see list below) to visit a participating research institute to carry out a collaborative visit of up to 3 months duration, and to gain access to some of the most powerful High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities in Europe.. Researchers may visit any institute associated with one of the following HPC centres:.. CINECA.. (Bologna),.. BSC.. (Barcelona),.. EPCC.. (Edinburgh),.. HLRS.. (Stuttgart),.. GENCI-CINES.. (Paris),.. SARA.. (Amsterdam) and.. CSC.. (Helsinki).. Over the four-year lifespan of the project, some 1096 European researchers are expected to benefit from HPC-Europa2.. Who can benefit from Transnational Access?.. Applications are welcome from researchers at any level, from postgraduate researchers to senior professors, who are working on non-proprietary research in any discipline which can benefit from High Performance Computing.. HPC-Europa2 can support projects in any field of computational science, including theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, material sciences, computational fluid dynamics, astrophysics, meteo-climatology, computer science, numerical methods in engineering, bio-engineering, computational chemistry, molecular modelling, genomics and proteomics, computational biology and life sciences.. HPC-Europa2 also welcomes applications from disciplines which are not traditionally associated with HPC, such as cultural heritage applications and virtual archaeology.. Users are expected to publish their results in open literature within a reasonable time.. Visits will be motivated by two factors: potential for scientific collaboration, and the need to use High Performance Computing facilities.. Note that previous experience of HPC is not necessarily a prerequisite.. Applicants should firstly identify a researcher with whom they wish to collaborate, at one of the participating HPC centres or (more often) at an associated research institute (click.. for further information about possible host departments).. Note that applications will be approved primarily on the strength of the potential scientific collaboration.. Applicants must also demonstrate that access to HPC facilities is essential for their research.. Any applicant who cannot make a convincing case for access will not be offered a place on this programme.. Finally, note that researchers may.. NOT.. apply to visit a centre in the country in which they normally work.. What does HPC-Europa2 Transnational Access offer?.. -.. Access to an unrivalled range of supercomputers.. Users have  ...   researchers:.. - those from research groups which have not previously benefited from the programme;.. - those whose research would benefit from HPC facilities but who would not normally be able to have access to these in their own country;.. - those working in fields not traditionally associated with HPC.. How long in advance should the researcher apply for a visit?.. Selection meetings for HPC-Europa2 are held every three months.. As a general rule, people should apply between two and six months before they wish to begin their visit.. The selection panel will meet 4-6 weeks after the closing date, so it is not possible to start your visit less than two months from the closing date of the application.. In fact, we would recommend allowing a little more than 2 months, so that there is time to arrange all the logistical aspects of the visit after the selection meeting.. On the other hand, there have been problems in the past where visitors have come so long after writing their application that the whole direction of their work has changed and this may no longer be of any relevance to the host research group.. Thus, if you apply too far in advance, it is likely that your application will be rejected and you will be asked to apply again nearer the time.. For example, an applicant wishing to start his visit in October could apply in May, but another applicant intending to start his visit in December should not apply in May, as this is more than 6 months in advance of the proposed start date of the visit.. Instead, the second applicant should wait for the August closing date.. Eligible countries:.. Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, FYROM, Malta, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom.. Past Programmes:.. HPC-Europa2 builds on the partners' pre-existing experience of running Transnational Access programmes.. BSC (at that time CEPBA-CESCA), CINECA and EPCC were all funded under each of the EC's Transnational Access programmes between 1993 and 2003, with the Projects ACCESS, MINOS and TRACS..

  • Title: Research Activities | HPC-Europa2 Project | Access to some of Europe's biggest supercomputers | an I3 funded by the EU - DG Research
    Descriptive info: HPC-Europa2 provides three JRAs:.. JRA1.. : HPC on Massively Parallel Architectures: Programming models;.. JRA2.. : Virtual Cluster;.. JRA3.. : Tools for Scientific Data Services.. In the next few years, the main European HPC centers, most of whom are involved in HPC-Europa2 will provide HPC infrastructures in the order of several hundreds TeraFlop/s and even PetaFlop/s.. For the optimal exploitation of such powerful systems, scientific applications need to be properly adapted.. This, in general, can require the adoption of new programming models and new programming strategies and consequently code (re)writing or even reengineering.. JRA1 participants have explored these aspects, of paramount importance for the scientists involved in computational sciences, exploring, experiencing, testing and analyzing innovative solutions for parallel computing on massive parallel architectures, icnluding accelerators.. The aim of.. is to help the TA visitors with the development and parallelization of applications, as well with the actual deployment on the TA site’s machines, which offer quite heterogeneous architectures.. In order to ease the deployment of the user’s application, it is important to provide the visitor an early experience on parallel machines and methodologies.. This activity will develop a “HPC-Europa-style” Live CD, that will allow actual hands-on building of a “virtual cluster”.. This will assist the users (even before their  ...   codes were not suitable for the requirements of the specific environment at the TA centre (queuing systems, libraries, environment).. Moreover, this JRA provides an excellent opportunity to integrate in a specific environment the tools and educational material developed at each center and in the other JRAs and NAs.. The results of numerical investigation produced by actual HPC systems are growing in size and complexity.. For dealing efficiently with this amount of data, technical solutions are needed as was identified in a Network Activity of the previous HPC-Europa project.. Starting from this indication,.. activity will develop data-grid tools with flexible and powerful meta-data capabilities.. In particular, it will develop innovative solutions for scientific data management, search and filtering, and develop tools for high-level data-analysis to investigate and describe complex data-relationships.. These tools will improve the data accessibility, reusability and enable the exchange within international research communities.. The results of this JRA will greatly improve the way the research communities efficiently operate on data.. HPC-Europa2 as a whole will undoubtedly enable us to raise the profile of HPC within Europe and of European computational science worldwide, and ensure that users’ interests are given due consideration in the standardisation process, well in the direction of the recommendations provided by ESFRI..
