Calls for proposals :: FETHPC: Towards exascale high-performance computing

FETHPC: Towards exascale high-performance computing

Deadline: 25 November 2014

(30/04/2014) In the Work Programme 2014-2015, the FETHPC call "Towards exascale high-performance computing" is implementing part of the HPC strategy elaborated in the context of the HPC Public-Private Partnership.

The increasing demand for computing power from all areas of modern science and industrial engineering cannot be met without radically new architectures, new algorithmic approaches and the interdisciplinary co-design of software and applications.

This call aims at leveraging the existing European strengths for building the next generation of extreme performance computing by 2020 and taking advantage of the new opportunities created from the transition from peta to exascale computing.
The goal is to achieve world-class extreme scale computing capabilities in platforms, technologies and applications. While focused on the extreme end of HPC, these results will, over time, spill over into a broad spectrum of mid-range and entry-level HPC systems, thus maximizing over time the exploitation potential of the targeted technologies. The presence of a sustainable European HPC Ecosystem will also boost research and innovation in scientific areas such as physics, chemistry, biology, life sciences, materials, climate, geosciences, etc..

HPC Core Technologies, Programming Environments and Algorithms for Extreme Parallelism and Extreme Data Applications
This call targets one of these subtopics:
- HPC core technologies and architectures
- Programming methodologies, environments, languages and tools
- APIs and system software for future extreme scale systems
- New mathematical and algorithmic approaches

Budget: 93.4M€ (Research and Innovation Actions)

HPC Ecosystem Development
This call targets one of the following topics:
- Coordination of the HPC strategy
- Excellence in High Performance Computing Systems

Budget: 4M€ (Coordination and Support Actions)
