Tune your own simulator to demonstrate how you can make efficient use of emerging architectures: multi-GPU, multi-cores, etc
Show your software engineering skills guaranteeing the sustainability of your simulator within the fast-moving computer architecture world.

You may highlight the original numerical schemes that you use in your simulator. The innovative nature of the scheme may be focused on various objectives: precision of results, low computational cost with equivalent precision, ability to handle complex meshes, etc.

To ensure a fair comparison of competing simulators, all the entries will be assessed on 5 nodes of the IFPEN ENER110 supercomputer. These nodes contain 80 Intel SandyBridge cores and 10 NVidia K20m accelerators. The test phase on the cluster will take place during November.

As long as your simulation works on ENER110, we will give you the opportunity to present your simulator, in a short five-minute talk at the beginning of the conference, and to highlight its originality, along with its computing performance.

Show your talents and try to win the SimRace award!
