The EXA2CT European Project

EXA2CT: exascale one step closer…The EXA2CT project ran from 2013 to 2016 and brought together experts at the cutting edge of the development of solvers, related algorithmic techniques, and HPC software architects for programming models and communication.

The main results of EXA2CT can be found the results brochure. The proto-apps and libraries can be downloaded from the website.

GPI2 finalist in the Innovation Radar Prize

Fraunhofer ITWM goes through to the final round with their communication middleware GPI.

Fraunhofer ITWM group – a partner in EXA2CT – has reached the finals of the European Innovation Radar Prize 2016, with their communication middleware GPI2 (Global address space Programming Interface).

At the ICT Proposers Day in Bratislava on the 26th September, the finalists will pitch their innovation, and their plans to get it ‘out of the lab and into the market’, to a panel of investors and entrepreneurs. The jury will decide on a winner in each of the 4 categories. One of these winners will also be awarded the overall 2016 Innovation Radar Prize.

ESPRESO Library Released

ESPRESO (ExaScale PaRallel FETI SOlver) developed at IT4Innovations is a highly efficient parallel solver which contains several Finite Element Tearing and Interconnect (FETI) based algorithms including a new Hybrid FETI method. The alpha version of the ESPRESO which includes the Hybrid Total FETI method has been released in August 2016. More information on is available on


Come and visit us at ISC’16:

New proto applications

Two new prototype applications are available for download on the Proto-Apps page:

  • BPMF, machine-learning and big data at HPC scale, and
  • Mini-FEM a unstructured mesh assembly application.

Report from ISC’15

During this year’s ISC, we had our regular booth with the European Exascale Projects.

Next to that we also presented our projects during a separate workshop.

Videos will be available soon. A small preview is already available.

PRACEDays15 Workshop

Our ExaScale Satellite event at this year’s PRACEDays was a big success. More than sixty people attended, good interaction with the audience, especially during the panel discussion at the end of the event.

GASPI Tutorials in Stuttgart and Bristol

Our next GASPI tutorial will be in Stuttgart on April 27, 2015

Another tutorial will be in Bristol, UK on May 20-21, 2015
