subfolders.sub_thumbnail_SERVICESWithin the ESiWACE2 project, open HPC services to the Earth system modelling community in Europe will be provided (see work package 3 of ESiWACE2 (pdf)).

The goal of these services is to create collaborations that provide guidance, engineering, and advice to support exascale preparations for weather and climate models. It is the aim to improve model efficiency and to enable to port models to existing and upcoming European tier0 systems.

All groups developing and maintaining weather and climate codes - not only the ESiWACE2 partners - can apply. Proposals for such collaboration projects will be peer-reviewed and when found eligible will be granted in-kind support by one of the partners involved.

The following three types of services will be provided:

  • Service 1: Model portability and refactoring
  • Service 2: Coupling, input, output and workflows
  • Service 3: Weather and climate benchmarking

 

Sep 09, 2019: ESiWACE2 Service 1 and Service 2 call for proposals is now open!

ESiWACE2 Service 1 aims to support the exascale preparations for the weather and climate modelling community in Europe. We create short collaboration projects that provide guidance, engineering, and advice to improve model efficiency and port models to existing and upcoming computing infrastructure. All groups developing and maintaining weather and climate codes - not only the ESiWACE2 partners - can apply. The projects, funded by ESiWACE2, will be granted in-kind contributions by the Netherlands eScience Center and/or Atos-Bull. So if you are developing a weather / climate model and are looking for guidance, engineering, and advice to prepare your code for new hardware platforms, such as GPUs, please submit an application to this call!

The call for collaborations to prepare Europe's Weather and Climate Models for pre-exascale systems (ESiWACE Service 1) is now open until November 1st 2019.
Click here for the online application form of the Service 1 call for proposals.

ESiWACE Service 2 offers Dedicated User Support to developers of weather and climate codes to efficiently use the XIOS I/O server or the OASIS3-MCT coupler. In this context, we provide technical help to design, upgrade or enhance the implementation of XIOS or OASIS3-MCT in your model(s) and/or set up a tailored and computationally efficient coupled system with performant I/Os. Provided by CERFACS and IPSL, this Service is open to any weather/climate research laboratory in Europe. This year, 2 person-month of Dedicated User Support will be offered for both XIOS and OASIS3-MCT.

Details of the calls are available here for XIOS and here for OASIS3-MCT.
