ESiWACE will substantially improve efficiency and productivity of numerical weather and climate simulation on high-performance computing platforms by supporting the end-to-end workflow of global Earth system modelling in HPC environment. This will be obtained by improving and supporting the: (1) scalability of models, tools and data management on state-of-the-art...

The main objective of this project (MDRAF) was to describe the 3D structure of Mediterranean desert dust outbreaks and study their effects on radiation and atmospheric dynamics by means of numerical modeling (NMMB/BSC Chemical Transport model-NMMB/BSC-CTM). Moreover, the meteorological feedbacks and the forecasting accuracy of NMMB/BSCCTM when dust effects are considered were...

In the next decade, EU industries developing Critical Real-Time Embedded Systems (CRTES) (safety, mission or business critical) will face a once-in-a-life-time disruptive challenge caused by the transition to multicore processors and the advent of manycores, tantamount to complex networked systems. This challenge brings the opportunity to integrate multiple applications onto...

The recent technological advancements and market trends are causing an interesting phenomenon towards the convergence of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Embedded Computing (EC) domains. On one side, new kinds of HPC applications are being required by markets needing huge amounts of information to be processed within a bounded amount of time. On the other side, EC systems...

The Mont-Blanc project aims to develop a European Exascale approach leveraging on commodity power-efficient embedded technologies. The project has developed a HPC system software stack on ARM, and will deploy the first integrated ARM-based HPC prototype by 2014, and is also working on a set of 11 scientific applications to be ported and tuned to the prototype system.

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain diseases and build revolutionary new computing technologies. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within sight. The goal of the Human...

The EUBrazilCC project was a first step towards providing a user-centric, cross-Atlantic test bench for European & Brazilian research communities. EUBrazilCC was centred in practical scientific use cases, and it is built on a close collaboration among European & Brazilian excellence centres.

EUBrazilCC exploited & coordinated, through a 2...

The main goal of EUBrazilOpenBio was to deploy an e-Infrastructure of open access resources (data, tools, services), to make significant strides towards supporting the needs and requirements of the biodiversity scientific community. This data e-Infrastructure resulted from the federation and integration of substantial individual existing data, cloud, and grid EU and Brazilian...

With the challenges of service and infrastructure providers as the point of departure, OPTIMIS focused on open, scalable and dependable service platforms and architectures that allowed flexible and dynamic provision of advanced services. The OPTIMIS innovations can be summarized as a combination of technologies to create a dependable ecosystem of providers and consumers that...

Design complexity and power density implications stopped the trend towards faster single-core processors. The current trend is to double the core count every 18 months, leading to chips with 100+ cores in 10-15 years. Developing parallel applications to harness such multicores is the key challenge for scalable computing systems.

The ENCORE project...
