RAMSES Users' Meeting

April 24, 2024 – April 26, 2024 (9:00 AM-5:00 PM) | Simons Foundation, located at 160 Fifth Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, Ny, 10010, and Zoom

RAMSES is an open source code written by Romain Teyssier to model astrophysical systems, featuring self-gravitating, magnetised, compressible, radiative fluid flow. Based on the Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) technique, it has been widely used for cosmological simulations of the Universe, isolated as well as cosmological re-simulations of individual galaxies, simulations of molecular clouds, star formation, supernovae remnants, accretion disks around black holes and planets.
Now held for the ninth time, the RUM aims to bring together RAMSES users of all levels to present scientific results, new technical developments and challenges. Participation is free of charge.

HiPEAC 2024

17-19 January 2024 | Munich, Germany

The HiPEAC conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for general-purpose, embedded and cyber-physical systems. Areas of focus and integration include safety-critical dependencies, cybersecurity, energy efficiency and machine learning.

SPACE and Plasma-PEPSC CoEs invite the rich plasma code community, HPC experts and scientists to the joint workshop “Plasma Physics towards the ExaScale Era”.
The aim is to discuss the requirement to adapt existing plasma codes to advanced HPC infrastructures and the key issues and possible solutions for porting selected codes to such new emerging architectures.

The workshop is organized from 10.00 to 17.30, on January 19, 2024 at the Science Congress Centre in Munich. Register and join us at HiPEAC 2024


Plasma Physics Towards the ExaScale Era

January 19, 2024 | 10.00 - 17.30
Science Congress Centre - Munich, Germany

Plasma constitutes the fourth state of matter and by far the most mysterious. Its dynamics is inherently nonlinear, multidimensional and multiscale. Hence, theoretical modelling is somewhat limited and great progress in plasma physics has been achieved using computer simulations. Advances in High Performance Computing (HPC) have further boosted our knowledge in this field. Indeed, massively parallel simulations have allowed the modelling of increasingly larger and more complex systems with unprecedented resolution levels. In turns, since plasma physics is key to so many applications and technologies, from astrophysics to space physics, from clean energy production based on fusion to more compact and cheaper particle accelerators, these simulations have been producing a new wealth of knowledge and enabling key applications for science, industry, and society.

The advent of the exascale era has posed key challenges to this positive trend because of the requirement to adapt existing plasma codes to novel architectures. The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking recognised these challenges and this year funded two Centres of Excellence (CoEs) to prepare codes dealing with different aspects of plasma physics for the exascale era and beyond.

This workshop will bring together plasma researchers, code developers, research software engineers and HPC experts from the newly launched CoEs SPACE and Plasma-PEPSC and the rich plasma code community to discuss key issues and possible solutions for porting selected codes to new emerging architectures. This workshop thus represents an amazing opportunity for sharing best practice and innovative ideas and fostering knowledge sharing. We expect that the workshop will spark lively discussions and potential collaborations. Besides technical talks, there will be important moments of networking. Talks from early career scientists and scientists belonging to underrepresented groups will be promoted to favour inclusivity.
