The 4th edition of the ECFD will bring together researchers from academia and industry of the CFD community around YALES2 (incompressible flows) and AVBP (compressible flows) to federate their expertise with the objective to improve both some aspects linked to physics integrated into these codes and numerical simulation methodologies to meet technical and scientific challenges already perceptible on modern hybrid supercomputers with accelerated resources. One major impact of developments expected during this event is to support and contribute to energy transition.
Thus, this event is supported by GENCI and IDRIS (CNRS) which will make available to the CFD community, both GPU computing hours on the Jean Zay supercomputer (28PFlops peak) equipped with 2696 NVIDIA V100 GPUs and provide system and application support to the CFD community during the whole week. In addition, HPE and NVIDIA will provide their knowledge and expertise of this ecosystem with experts capable to support code porting and optimization of scientific applications.
During 5 days, around 50 researchers, supported by computer scientists, will participate to: - Plenary sessions given daily to expose all the tools and vehicles made available to users to support them in the paradigm shift from general purpose processors to accelerated innovative resources. - A workshop on 7 different topics (Combustion, Dynamic mesh adaptation, Multi-phase Flows, Numerics, Turbulent Flows, User experience, Fluid Structure Interactions). - A hackathon around AVBP and YALES2: In both cases, the objective will be to support application owners to continue their efforts to scale up their codes towards taking advantage of NVIDIA GPU resources.
Wishing a wonderful 4th ECFD event to this beautiful community, extremely responsive, passionate and voluntary! GENCI also thanks IDRIS, HPE and NVIDIA for their strong effort to support this event.
