Virtual Institute – High Productivity Supercomputing

Université de Versailles St-Quentin-en-Yvelines


LRC ITACA, a joint lab between the Université de Versailles St-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ) and a division of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA DAM), has been working for many years in the area of High Performance Computing (HPC).
Its main areas of expertise are performance evaluation of parallel systems, compiler optimizations, memory system architecture and optimization, numerical and embedded libraries, and low-level code optimization. Since 2009, CEA, GENCI, Intel and UVSQ have been setting up a joint Exascale Computing Research Centre (ECR), with the goal of addressing future HPC challenges. This centre has been operational since March 2010. [More]
