ESiWACE2 Virtual Workshop on Emerging Technologies for Weather and Climate Modelling was held online last week, by the Centre of Excellence in Simulation of Weather. Two of EPI’s distinguished experts participated with topics related to EPI and HPC – Jean-Marc Denis, from Atos, and Jesus Labarta, from BSC.
Jean-Marc Denis’ presentation was focused on the changes in the HPC field lately, the death of Moore’s law and the inevitable changes and challenges it brings to the future. He also gave an overview of EPI’s approach to the development of a European chip and our roadmap, with respect to those changes. Jesus Labarta, in a presentation titled Future HPC systems made in Europe, presented the vision and status of the EPAC development and offered the possibility to attendants to try their codes/mini apps in our co-design studies on the RISC-V vector emulator.
