The EU H2020 ESCAPE project (www.hpc-escape.eu) brings together numerical weather prediction (NWP), climate and high-performance computing (HPC) communities to develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational NWP and future climate models. One of the challenges is to execute complex state-of-the-art models of the atmosphere within tight production schedules.
The goal of this training is to introduce young scientists into NWP relevant topics as well as modern computational physics and energy efficient computing. During this two-day training, undergraduates will get familiar with ESCAPE dwarfs – fundamental algorithmic building blocks – and recognise why HPC and energy-efficient computations are important. The presented material will be well balanced between theoretical introduction and practical exercises, given by professional NWP and HPC staff. For those unable to travel, remote and live access will be given. This training is a great opportunity to establish professional links with academic staff across Europe for future cooperation.
The training will be held in the beautiful city of Poznań in Poland at the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC), close to Poznan University of Technology. PSNC is a leading research and computing centre in Poland, innovating and providing high performance and energy-efficient computing, optical networking and advanced applications to enable advances in eScience and engineering.
