Project description

The MultiXscale Centre of Excellence will increase performance, productivity and portability (“the Three P's”) across the entire spectrum of scientists active in the domain of multiscale simulation. It couples the scientific expertise of the CECAM network, represented by leading experts in multiscale simulations from different European institutions, with the technical expertise of the EESSI collaboration, and targets the computational laboratories of EuroHPC and beyond. It will shoulder much of the technical burden of developing and distributing domain-relevant applications for (pre-)exascale through application co-design for exascale technologies, and the provisioning of exascale-oriented libraries and services that nudge the community to adopt battle-tested, future-oriented, scalable workflows and portable technologies. Together, these will allow application developers to pursue domain-relevant scientific innovation without being over-burdened by technical detail, and empower industrial and academic application users to painlessly adopt bleeding-edge technologies from the domain on whatever computational resource they may have access to.
