Verified Exascale Computing for Multiscale Applications

Funded in June last year under the FET proactive programme (FETHPC-02-2017 - Transition to Exascale Computing), the purpose of the VECMA project is to enable a diverse set of multiscale, multiphysics applications — from fusion and advanced materials through climate and migration, to drug discovery and the sharp end of clinical decision making in personalised medicine — to run on current multi-petascale computers and emerging exascale environments with high fidelity such that their output is “actionable”. That is, the calculations and simulations are certifiable as validated (V), verified (V) and equipped with uncertainty quantification (UQ) by tight error bars such that they may be relied upon for making important decisions in all the domains of concern. 

The central deliverable will be an open source toolkit for multiscale VVUQ based on generic multiscale VV and UQ primitives, to be released in stages over the lifetime of this project, fully tested and evaluated in emerging exascale environments, actively promoted over the lifetime of this project, and made widely available in European HPC centres.

This project is let by Prof Peter Coveney, from University College London and sees the participation of other 8 international partners:

  1. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Zur Forderung Der Wissenschaften Ev
  2. Brunel University London
  3. Bayerische Akademie Der Wissenschaften
  4. Bull Sas
  5. Stichting Nederlandse Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Instituten
  6. Cbk Sci Con Limited
  7. Universiteit Van Amsterdam
  8. Instytut Chemii Bioorganicznej Polskiej Akademii Nauk

VECMA has recently released its first newsletter, which is available at this link. We will keep you posted on future developments.
