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 (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.).

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..
