Preview: DKRZ@ISC‘19

The ISC High Performance 2019 (ISC'19), taking place in Frankfurt am Main from June 16 to 20, is expected to attract up to 3,500 conference attendees and 160 national and international exhibitors to discuss the latest HPC technological developments and applications , This year's focus will be on the categories of HPC systems, applications and algorithms, as well as future-oriented trends and challenges in the field of high-performance computing. The DKRZ is again involved in numerous activities at the ISC'19.

At the ISC exhibition, DKRZ co-jointly with its co-exhibitor - the European Center of Excellence ESiWACE - can be found on booth L-440. An interactive touch-screen will show ultra-high-resolution climate simulations. The simulations used the ICON climate model with a global resolution of 2.5 km to 5 km and were run within the projects ESiWACE and DYAMOND.

At its booth DKRZ also presents career prospects and open job offers at the DKRZ, especially during the STEM Day, planned on 19 June 2019.

From 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on June 18th DKRZ employees will be presenting their work and projects with short lectures at the booth of the Gauß Alliance (No. M-334),:

  • Project ESiWACE: Towards Global Kilometre-Scale Weather and Climate Predictions (Philipp Neumann)
  • Project TaLPas: Large-Scale Molecular Simulation of Droplet Coalescence ‑ Scalability, Load Balancing, Auto-Tuning (Philipp Neumann)
  • Climate visualizations (Niklas Röber)
  • OpenMP kernel distribution via LLVM pass transformation (Jannek Squar)
  • Integrating Storage Systems and Self-Describing Data Formats (Michael Kuhn)


The ISC Research Poster Session will again take place in the exhibition hall, being chaired by Phillip Neumann. Employees of the DKRZ and of the group "Scientific Computing" also use the opportunity to present their latest research results, projects and innovations and show the following poster contributions:


DKRZ is also engaged in the PhD Forum In-Situ Simulation Data Compression for Climate Domain on June 17, 2019, and in the workshop HPC I/O in the Data Center  on June 20, 2019.

The student team of the University of Hamburg, which is supervised by the group "Scientific Computing" at DKRZ, will again compete with 13 other teams in the Student Cluster Competition.
