News & Events

Come and find out more about CRESTA and our activities at the ISC'12 conference taking place in Hamburg 17-21st June 2012. 

CRESTA will be represented during a session on the Wednesday afternoon entitled 'The European Way to Exascale - Presentation of the EU Funded Exascale Projects.'

Six of our partners are exhibiting at the conference, please visit their booths to learn more about the project:  EPCC (#860), HLRS Stuttgart (#150), CSC (#141), CRAY (#350), Allinea Software (#734), and Technische Universitaet Dresden (#120).


Press Release about CRESTA

The first exascale supercomputers are expected to arrive at the end of this decade.  These systems must deliver an exaflop - or a million million million calculations per second. A new consortium of leading European sites has come together to meet the challenge of delivering software to support and exploit these massive systems.

Two fo the CRESTA partners, Cray and EPCC, will be presenting a tutorial on Parallel Programming with Fortran Coarrays at SC11 on November 14th 2011. SC is the premier International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.

HPCwireHPCWire highlights a report written by EPCC on Europe’s future HPC development and its economic importance to the region.

The authors echo many of the arguments made by other global organizations—that the key to competitiveness in coming years hinges on HPC and more specifically, on modelling and simulation.


The European Exascale Software Initiative (EESI) final conference will be held on the 10th and 11th of October in the World Trade Centre in Barcelona, Spain. EESI’s goal is “to build a European vision and roadmap to address the international outstanding challenge of performing scientific computing on the new generation of computers which will provide hundreds of Petaflop performances in 2015 and Exaflop performances in 2020.”
