Performance Optimization and Productivity (POP)
EU (2015 - 2018)
In the current context where the complexity of applications and systems is dramatically exploding, it is frequent for code developers or users not to have time or methodologies to perform a deep analysis and understand the actual behavior of their codes. It is often non trivial to get the detailed insight that can lead to maximizing the return on investment on the refactoring efforts aimed at code optimization. In other cases, it is not well understood how best use new features in dominant programming models.
The POP (Performance Optimization and Productivity) Centre of Excellence gathers leading experts in performance tools/analysis and programming models to offer services to the academic and industrial communities to help them better understand the behavior of their applications, suggest the most productive directions for optimizing the performance of the codes and help implementing those transformations in the most productive way. The consortium includes academic and supercomputing centers with a long track record of world class research as well as service companies and associations with leading experience in high performance support services and promotion. All partners have shown in the past their commitment to helping both academia and industry to best leverage the capabilities of high performance computing.
