DFG ProPE (project lead)

ProPE Logo

Description ProPE aims at developing a blueprint for a sustainable, structured, and process-oriented service infrastructure for performance engineering (PE) of high performance applications in German tier-2 or tier-3 scientific computing centers.

The vision of ProPE is to have a nationwide support infrastructure which allows application scientists to develop and use code with provably optimal hardware resource utilization on high performance systems, thus reducing IT costs of scientific progress.

BMBF Metacca

Metacca Logo

Description The goal of Metacca is to extend the AnyDSL framework into a homogeneous programming environment for heterogeneous single- and multi-node systems. To this effect, the existing programming language and compiler will be extended by an expressive type system and language features enabling efficient programming of accelerators. Significant aspects of this extension concern the modelling of memory on heterogeneous devices, distribution of data to multiple compute nodes and improving the precision and power of the partial evaluation approach.

BMBF SeASiTe

Metacca Logo

Description The research project SeASiTe has the purpose to thoroughly investigate self-adaptation of time-step-based simulation codes on heterogeneous HPC systems. The goal is the design and provision of a software toolset with which the application programmer can enrich a time-step-based simulation code with self-adaptation techniques.
