Earth Modeling System is Expected to Offer Outstanding Climate Simulation Resolutions

Sandia National Laboratories reports on the work of the Energy Exascale Earth Systems Model (E3SM) and how the system E3SM has developed the last four years is expected to offer one of the best resolutions ever achieved by supercomputers simulating aspects of the planet’s climate.

ADIOS: Providing a Framework for Scientific Data on Exascale Systems

The ADIOS project—led by Scott Klasky of Oak Ridge National Laboratory—is optimizing I/O on exascale architectures and making itself easily maintainable, sustainable, and extensible, while ensuring its performance and scalability.

Program Offers Developers a Training and Productivity Edge on Emerging Technologies

ECP’s Training and Productivity program delivers a robust developer training for ECP project members and the broader HPC community, including industry’s computing staff members, so they will be able to take full advantage of exascale hardware and software.

Audio Update: Software Technology Research Focus Area

ECP’s Software Technology (ST) research focus area is working on several elements of its Software Development Kit initiative and preparing for the coordinated release of ST products for Q1FY19. Those are two of the topics ST Director Michael Heroux discusses in an audio update.

Audio Update: Application Development Research Focus Area

The status of the testing of ECP applications on the Summit system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the success and impact of the co-design centers are among the subjects of an audio update from Andrew Siegel, director of ECP’s Application Development research focus area.

ORNL Researchers Help to Bring Application Coupling One Step Closer to Reality

Despite exponential advances in computing power, many physical processes are still problematic relative to modeling and simulation. Fusion energy is one of those processes. But coupled computer codes and the promising power of exascale computing could bring commercial fusion power more within reach.

Audio Update: Hardware and Integration

The US Department of Energy high performance computing laboratories will acquire, install, and operate exascale-class systems. ECP's Hardware and Integration focus area helps the labs and ECP applications and software teams prepare for exascale through mutually beneficial collaborations.

Helping to Make the Development of Scientific Applications Effective and Efficient for Exascale and Beyond
