New! The 2015 Digital Simulation Awards

The Digital Simulation Awards, jointly organised by Usine Nouvelle and TERATEC, will, for the very first time, be awarded to the champions of the digital simulation world, marking the occasion of TERATEC's tenth anniversary.

At the ceremony held during the TERATEC Forum on 23 June 2015, five Awards will be awarded by a jury of top professionals in recognition of the winners' achievements. The event is open to any company working in the fields of Digital Simulation and High Performance Computing.

If you would like to promote an innovative initiative or present your own project, send in your entry form now.

Five Awards will be awarded by a jury of top professionals in the industry:
  • Startup Award: Awarded to a startup founded within the last five years and which has distinguished itself by its innovative work in computing. The Best Computing Startup of the Year will be a provider of tools or services in the areas of digital simulation or Big Data analysis, and which has created added value or jobs. The ability to demonstrate an impact on the development of existing business models or on cost reduction will be a plus.

  • SME Award: Awarded to an SME-SMI that has successfully and efficiently implemented digital computing technology (simulation, data analysis or Big Data) and has changed the processes it uses to develop new products and services, or to produce, maintain or implement forward-planning across the entire life cycle. The winner must demonstrate through its results (in terms of time, productivity and profitability, etc.) that these new tools have enabled it to make real progress in its process management.

  • Innovation Award: Awarded for a product, technology or service developed by a company, and which breaks new ground in digital simulation or data analysis. The Award for the Year's Best Innovation in Computing may thus be awarded for any stage in the life cycle of an industrial project, from research through production, in-service maintenance and product recycling. Criteria taken into account to choose the winning entry include the impact on a company's competitiveness and sustainable development.

  • Collaboration Award (large company and SME) : Awarded to a collaborative project between a large company and an SME (or group of partners) which have worked on a project related to digital computing, at the stage of research, development or deployment. The two partners must demonstrate the exemplary nature of their collaboration in terms of innovation, protecting the interests of both parties (contracts, industrial property) and transferring results to industry.

  • Jury's Prize: Awarded to one of the entrants, in any category, for the exemplary nature of a project in terms of innovation and development of the use of digital computing by an SME.

We would like to thank our partners, ATOS, COMSOL, INRIA and HP and supports, CAP DIGITAL, IMAGES & RESEAUX and SYSTEMATIC, for their support in helping us to organise this event.

2nd call for High Performance Computing and Simulation projects
This second round embraces the priorities of the "Supercomputers" plan's road map, which was approved by the steering committee for the New "Industrial France," with President Hollande in attendance. It has two components:

  • Technological fields : Proposed R&D projects must offer innovative hardware and software solutions to promote optimal use of the new architectures currently being developed. They will need to fit into one of the following categories covered by the Supercomputing plan: New hardware/software architectures and Software and algorithms optimized for parallelism.
  • Sectorial initiatives : Proposed R&D projects must offer particularly innovative solutions in sectors of application that can benefit by using high performance computing and simulation technologies. Special emphasis will be placed on a first round of initiatives in high-priority sectors identified in the Supercomputing plan. Read more >>>

TERATEC Training Workshops - May 28, 2015 : Initiation to massively parallel profiling with the tools from ParaTools
This workshop will focus on performance data collection, analysis, and performance optimization. After describing and demonstrating how performance data (both profile and trace data) can be collected in a straightforward manner using TAU’s (Tuning and Analysis Utilities) automated source and binary instrumentation, the workshop will cover how to analyze the performance data collected and drill down to find performance bottlenecks and determine their causes. The workshop will include some sample codes that illustrate the different instrumentation and measurement choices available to the users. The performance evaluation tools will cover parallel runtime systems such as MPC (http://paratools.fr/mpc) from CEA, MPI, OpenMP, pthread, CUDA, and OpenCL. Registration required and free participation >>>

European COLOC project: the COncurrency and LOcality Challenge
The COLOC project has started in July 2014 as part of the European ITEA programme for a duration of three years. The objective of this project is to model data location according to the relevant hardware architecture and interconnection network, so as to use it both in the platform resource management tools such as SLURM, and in communication libraries such as MPI, in applications and in profiling tools to optimize performance thanks to the optimized placement of processes and data.. The application domains that will implement these models and tools are: computational fluid dynamics (CFD) including combustion, computational electromagnetics (CEM) and computational structural mechanics (CSM).

The TERATEC 2014 Annual Report is available
This year, several operations have already begun including that at the service of future hardware technologies, under the leadership of the CEA. With regards to the development of new applications sectors, extremely promising avenues have been identified and a call for projects is going to be issued in the upcoming days coming from the France's General Investment Commission and the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Digital. To spread the use of HPC in small and medium-sized companies, we responded to a call for expression of interest from the General Investment Commission. Efforts should therefore start on this component in 2015 as well as the component on training. Download the TERATEC 2014 Annual Report >>> .
