Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique

The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is a public organization under the responsibility of the French Ministry of Education and Research. CNRS has the following main missions: i) to evaluate and carry out all research capable of advancing knowledge and bringing social, cultural, and economic benefits for society; ii) to contribute to the application and promotion of research results; iii) to develop scientific information; iv) to support research training.

Role in TREX

CNRS will be involved through the research activity of Michele Casula (Sorbonne University), Michel Caffarel and Anthony Scemama (both from Toulouse University). Within TREX, Casula will work on demonstrations and relevant scientific applications (WP5), and contribute to the code modularization and interfacing (WP2), by designing reference benchmarks and performance tests. Scemama will work on the design and implementation of the libraries (WP1-3) and on the interoperability of the software (WP4).

Relevant infrastructures and facilities

Sorbonne University hosts the HPCave, a High Performance Computing (HPC) and Visualisation platform. The primary mission of the centre is to provide HPC resources and support for use by the UPMC-Sorbonne University research community. More than 200 staff, researchers and students currently have access to the latest technology and benefit from advanced support and training.

People at TREX
