Why CADMOS?

CADMOS' target is to develop long-term skills in computational science, HPC, and complex system modeling.

Des ressources HPC dédiées à la science

Cadmos

Cadmos soutient tous les types de projets scientifiques

What resources are available?

Any member of University of Geneva, University of Lausanne, or EPFL can submit a project to receive free access to one of the two following parallel computers:

- CSCS Piz Daint Cray architecture (Intel Broadwell + NVidia TESLA P100)

- An Intel-CPU based massively parallel computer located at SCITAS

Please note that Piz Daint is a GPU based machine and the usage of the accelerator is strongly recommended.

How to submit a project ?

Firstly, your application must be executable on the targeted machine.

Secondly, you are kindly asked to submit a project proposal in order to get the CADMOS financing. CADMOS will follow the same procedure as the CSCS for its production projects (http://www.cscs.ch/user_lab/allocation_schemes/index.html).

In order to run and benchmark your code, you must be entitiled by CADMOS to access the special preparatory partition.

A project proposal must include at least :

  1. Scientific background
  2. Performance predictions based on other architectures (LEMANICUS, Baobab, Deneb&alike, VitalIT, etc..)
  3. Performance results on the targeted machine
  4. Resources request (machine, node hours, storage, etc.)
  5. Expected results

Projects can be submitted all year round to Dr. Vincent Keller (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

What kind of support can you expect from CADMOS ?

You will be supported at all stages of your project proposal submission : porting of your application, running the benchmarks on Piz Daint, etc..
