BigDFT4CHEM wins the EXDCI Call for Spin-off Initiatives (SPI)06 February 2020
The project “Commercialization study of BigDFT for chemistry applications” (BigDFT4CHEM) has won the call for Spin-off Initiatives (SPI) launched by the EXDCI-2 consortium. The aim of BigDFT4CHEM is to study the market and commercialization possibilities of the open source code BigDFT applied to the chemical industry, and to contribute to closing the gap between the scientific “gem” and its commercial application. The project will receive €65,000 in funding for a business-oriented assessment and will start its activities in February 2020.
Publication of EXDCI-2 report on Transversal Vision05 February 2020
The EXDCI-2 project has released its report on Transversal Vision.
In this report, EXDCI-2 highlights a set of challenges that are becoming more acute as the HPC technology and use is profoundly changing. The introduction of big data in the discovery process is driving application to be implemented as large-scale distributed workflows that need to be deployed on a large set of systems, each one having its own idiosyncrasies (e.g. quantum accelerator) that questions the way application are implemented.
SC19: Representation of FET HPC projects20 December 2019
Again this year, the EXDCI-2 project shared a booth with PRACE during the SC19 conference.
Continuing its coordination effort of the European HPC community, EXDCI offered representation opportunities to FET HPC projects, by inviting them to promote materials on the booth, as well as to give an overview of their outcomes in the framework of mini-presentation sessions organized by PRACE and introduced by Serge Bogaerts, PRACE managing director and EXDCI-2 coordinator.
BDEC2 workshop San Diego to focus on AI and machine learning for future cyber-infrastructure23 September 2019
