EXA2PRO: H2020-FETHPC-2017

EXA2PRO : Enhancing Programmability and boosting Performance Portability for Exascale Computing Systems

Acronym: EXA2PRO
Type of action: RIA
Call identifier: H2020-FETHPC-2017

The Software Engineering group, part of the Software and Data Engineering Laboratory, of the Department of Applied Informatics at the University of Macedonia, proudly announces its participation in the EXA2PRO project (as part of the CERTH group).

The vision of EXA2PRO is to develop a programming environment that will enable the productive deployment of highly parallel applications in exascale computing systems. EXA2PRO programming environment will integrate tools that will address significant exascale challenges. It will support a wide range of scientific applications, provide tools for improving source code quality, enable efficient exploitation of exascale systems’ heterogeneity and integrate tools for data and memory management optimization. Additionally, it will provide various fault-tolerance mechanisms, both user-exposed and at runtime system level and performance monitoring features. EXA2PRO will be evaluated using 4 use cases from 4 different domains, which will be deployed in JUELICH supercomputing center.

SDK4ED: H2020 ICT-05-2017

SDK4ED:Software Development toolKit for Energy optimization and technical Debt elimination

Acronym: SK4ED
Topic: ICT-05-2017
Type of action: RIA
Call identifier: H2020-ICT-2016-2017

The Software Engineering group, part of the Software and Data Engineering Laboratory, of the Department of Applied Informatics at the University of Macedonia, proudly announces its participation in the SDK4ED consortium.

The vision of SDK4ED is to minimize cost, time and complexity of low-energy software development processes, by providing tools for automatic optimization of both software quality and non-functional requirements such as energy efficiency, dependability and performance, with the capacity to tackle the interplay between design quality and run-time constraints.
