ESCAPE-2 Final Dissemination Workshop

September 03, 2021 15:00 - September 03, 2021 18:30

ESCAPE-2 Final Dissemination Workshop

The EU H2020-funded project ESCAPE-2 develops world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather and climate prediction systems. It continues the pioneering work of the ESCAPE project. The project aims to attack all three sources of enhanced computational performance at once, namely 

  1. developing and testing bespoke numerical methods that optimally trade off accuracy, resilience and performance, 
  2. developing generic programming approaches that ensure code portability and performance portability, 
  3. testing performance on HPC platforms offering different processor technologies.

The Final Dissemination Workshop presented the results of the project together with relevant initiatives from international actors.

The workshop was held online, with over 70 attendees. Presentations are available below.

Workshop Schedule: 

  Start: 3 September 2021 14:00 (BST) / 15:00 (CEST) / 09:00 (US ET)

  End: 3 September 2021 17:30 / 18:30 (CEST) / 12:30 (US MT)
