Collaborative Research into Exascale Systemware, Tools and Applications, European Union FP7

Project Details



CRESTA, Collaborative Research into Exascale Systemware, Tools and Applications, brings together four European supercomputing centers with one major equipment vendor, two leading programming tools providers and six application and problem owners to explore how the exaflop challenge can be met. The project has two foci: one on enabling a key set of co-design applications for exascale, and the other on building and exploring appropriate systemware for exascale platforms. The six co-design vehicles represent an exceptional group of applications used by European academia and industry to solve critical grand challenge issues, including: biomolecular systems, fusion energy, the virtual physiological human, numerical weather prediction and engineering.
