Hünfeld 2019: Workshop on Computer Simulation and Theory of Macromolecules

The exponential increase of known protein structures and the wealth of experimental data on biomolecular dynamics and function particularly in the single molecule field creates a rapidly growing demand for computer simulation studies at the atomic level. This informal and interdisciplinary meeting for physicists, chemists, and biologists using and/or developing computer simulation techniques for the study of biological molecules aims at providing on overview of recent developments and applications as well as an informal and lively platform for future collaborations.

Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019

Supercomputing Frontiers is an annual international conference that provides a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss visionary ideas, important visionary trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing.

1st F2F Inter-Work Package meeting

The meeting objectives are the following ones:

• High-level F2F technical meeting involving workpackage leaders (WPLs), task leaders (TLs) and flagship code lead developers (LDs) to coordinate the different tasks in WP2, WP3 and WP4.
• Explain the first code audit round strategy (T2.1).
• Specify the flagship code requirements for T2.2 (single-node optimization), T2.3 (multi-node optimization) and T2.4 (I/O bottlenecks), and identify who and how will perform each optimization task.
• Specify the requirements of flagship codes and Pilot Demonstrators for T3.4 (workflow manager). This includes the ChEESE definition of workflow(s) and the identification of generic workflow components shared by different pilots and future services (e.g. data acquisition and pre-process, interaction between multiple binaries within a job, task/job dependencies, scheduling and allocation of computational resources, fault tolerance, code restarting, post-processing, etc.).

The meeting will take place at HLRS in Stuttgart, Germany, on the “Vaihingen Campus” of the University of Stuttgart.
