This week, from 14th to 16th December 2020, our team member José Lorenzo participated in the EUROfusion Work Package Magnets (WPMAG) Annual Meeting that took place virtually due to the travel restrictions associated to the covid-19 pandemics.
The video recording and slides from the webinar given by our BigDFT collaborators on the 12th of November 2020, titled “The Flexibilities of Wavelets for Electronic Structure Calculations in Large systems”, is now available on the MaX Centre’s webpage. The webinar presents some of the features made possible by the peculiar properties of Daubechies wavelets, and it focuses on the usage of Density Functional Theory (DFT) for large-scale systems.
On November 27th, the 1st Spanish Fusion HPC Workshop (link to full programme and abstracts) was organized online by our Fusion group and Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in close collaboration with the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) and experts from several collaborator institutes. A total of 182 registered attendants interested in the modelling in fusion met in this online event which delved both into the overall progress and challenges of High Performing Computing (HPC) applied to large scale fusion projects such as ITER or EUROfusion, and into specific research on most types of fusion phenomena simulations (energy and particle transport, fast particles, multi-physics, plasma, deep learning, materials micro-structure, preconditioning, HPC systems resources and transferability across HPC systems, etc.).
The Fusenet PhD Event is an annual conference for PhD student in nuclear fusion in Europe, organised by Fusenet. In the recent year was held online on 23 and 24 November, due to the pandemic situation. The event is dedicated to European doctorate students in nuclear fusion to provide an opportunity to share and discuss their work. From our group, PhD student Mátyás Aradi and Tomas Bensadon participated in the event.
Supercomputing (SC) conference, which takes place yearly in November, is considered the main event in High-Performance Computing (HPC). It is specially booked in the agenda of HPC researchers around the world and it is one of the most important events for many researchers at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). The conference is promoted and sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society and has been held since 1988 in the USA. This year, for the first time, it is taking place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic from November 9 to 19.
