Dr Claudio Arlandini by Cineca will talk in an event in Vignola (MO) organized by CRIT and Digital Manufacturing research group leaded by Prof. Giuseppe Padula from Università degli Studi della Repubblica di San Marino, to stimulate the investment of manufacturing company on a key topic for the future of their competitiveness.
All the researchers of the Universities and Research Centers based in Lombardy are invited to submit scientific projects in order to receive High Performance Resources and specialized support. The proposals are eligible from any scientific discipline. Calls will be opened before the end of 2015.
The 12th Call for Proposal for Project Access will be open from today until 11 November 2015, 12:00 (noon) CET. Proposals can be based on a 12-months schedule, or, for Multi-year Projects, on a 24- or 36-months schedule. The 12th Call will offer resources on FERMI (CINECA) and MareNostrum (BSC). Allocation start date of awarded proposals: 14 March 2016
From 29 to 30 September 2015, Rome will be the venue of a joint HPC workshop organised by the project EXDCI. For the first time PRACE, ETP4HPC, the Centres of Excellence (CoE) and the FETHPC projects come together in a single event, to understand the working of and create a basis for the co-ordination of the entire European HPC ecosystem.
On 21 July 2015, Cineca and Fondazione Telethon signed a collaboration agreement that will provide Telethon researchers with highly advanced high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, storage facilities, data management services and analysis tools for the next three years.
Italy will host the 2015 edition of EMO. Promoted by CECIMO, European Association of the Machine Tool Industries, the world machine tool exhibition will take place October 5-10 in Milan. Cineca will be present at CECIMO booth and at the CECIMO European Research and Innovation Conference on Friday, 9 October. The participation is free. Registration before 30 September.
CINECA invites all interested scientists, whose projects fit the criteria of the PRACE call, to submit their projects. Preparatory access is intended for testing and developing codes in order to prepare applications for PRACE Tier-0 project access. Preparatory Access Type C includes code development with support from PRACE experts. The next cut-off date is September 7th, 2015.
The 11th PRACE Regular Call for Proposals yielded 107 eligible proposals of which 18 were awarded for a total of more than 500 million core hours. The 18 awarded projects are led by P. I. from 7 different European countries. 6 awarded projects have PI from Italy (33% of projects) for a total of 260 million core hours (50% of hours).
The Italian supercomputer FERMI, IBM Blue Gene/Q, is now number 32 in the June 2015 Top500 list. Fermi, available to the Italian and European scientific community by ISCRA and PRACE, was installed at Cineca in June 2012. Two Cineca systems, FERMI and Galileo, are ranked in the list.
THOR, the Turbulence Heating ObserveR, is a mission proposal in response to ESA M4 call to address one of the most fundamental but also one of the least understood physical processes in the universe: turbulent energy dissipation and particle energization. THOR uses the HVM (hybrid Vlasov-Maxwell) fully parallelized code, that for over 10 years runs on the Fermi @ CINECA.
