Anwendungsorientierte HPC-Software für skalierbare Parallelrechner - 3. HPC-Call

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) intends to support HPC users in the sustainable exploitation of the potentials of modern HPC architectures for their own research while at the same time enabling sustainable innovations in the area of ​​HPC methodology / tools / software . This is intended to provide the HPC experts with their own profile development as well as the expansion of competences and, in particular, competence building.
On the basis of concrete applications from science or industry, the interdisciplinary network is to develop advanced or new approaches in the field of software on scalable high-performance computers that solve the challenges of a massively scalable computer architecture, distributed memory architectures and / or new process types.

The main focus is on the effective porting of simulation software to scalable HPC systems, the development of tools for optimizing and improving performance, taking into account energy efficiency and new methodologies (compilers, operating systems, etc.) for hardware-independent programming of heterogeneous HPC systems.
