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