Towards Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for Weather- and Climate prediction: Status and Prospects   
18-20 October 2016, Elsinore, Denmark

The EU-H2020 ESCAPE (www.hpc-escape.eu) project brings together numerical weather prediction (NWP), climate and high-performance computing (HPC) communities to develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational NWP and future climate models. One of the challenges is to execute complex state-of-the-art models of the atmosphere within tight production schedules.

The workshop sessions will be organized according to the following topics (with oral presentations, including keynote speakers):
  • Introduction to the ESCAPE project
  • Weather & Climate Dwarfs – aspects and fundamental algorithmic building blocks underlying weather and climate services;
  • Diagnostic methods and tools, co-design and algorithms development for use in extreme-scale, HPC applications, minimizing time- and cost-to-solution;
  • Session for relevant EU projects involving HPC for weather, climate, ocean/sea, Earth System Modelling communities
  • Panel discussions on key issues from the workshop

We invite all interested persons to submit oral presentations relevant to the topics of the workshop,
