2015 Geodynamo Benchmarking Workshop

Boulder, Colorado

2015 Geodynamo Benchmarking Workshop

February 5-6, 2015  Boulder, Colorado

Workshop Description

The 2015 Geodynamo Benchmarking Workshop follows-up on the recommendations from the highly successful 2012 Geodynamo Developer meetings.  Hosted at NCAR, the 2015 workshop will discuss the results of the performance and accuracy benchmarks undertaken by the participating groups and as run on XSEDE Stampede by CIG. The workshop will be forward looking in examining future development directions for geodynamo codes and the start of the art computations in dynamo modeling.  We will also hear from Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and discuss proposed large-scale dynamo runs on Mira, the fifth fasted computer in the world. The proposed runs will be supported through the DOE INCITE program.

More information on the geodynamo benchmarks and the DOE INCITE Frontiers in Planetary and Stellar Magnetism Through High Performance Computing project can be found on our website.
