CNPq-Inria HOSCAR project

Participant : Stéphane Lanteri [Coordinator of the project] .

Since July 2012, the team is coordinating the HOSCAR http://www-sop.inria.fr/hoscar Brazil-France collaborative project. he HOSCAR project is a CNPq - Inria collaborative project between Brazilian and French researchers, in the field of computational sciences. The project is also sponsored by the French Embassy in Brazil.

The general objective of the project is to setup a multidisciplinary Brazil-France collaborative effort for taking full benefits of future high-performance massively parallel architectures. The targets are the very large-scale datasets and numerical simulations relevant to a selected set of applications in natural sciences: (i) resource prospection, (ii) reservoir simulation, (iii) ecological modeling, (iv) astronomy data management, and (v) simulation data management. The project involves computer scientists and numerical mathematicians divided in 3 fundamental research groups: (i) numerical schemes for PDE models (Group 1), (ii) scientific data management (Group 2), and (iii) high-performance software systems (Group 3). Several Brazilian institutions are participating to the project among which: LNCC (Laboratório Nacional de Computaçäo Científica), COPPE/UFRJ (Instituto Alberto Luiz Coimbra de Pós-Graduaçäo e Pesquisa de Engenharia/Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Grad<uate Studies and Research in Engineering, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), INF/UFRGS (Instituto de Informática, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul) and LIA/UFC (Laboratórios de Pesquisa em Ciência da Computaçäo Departamento de Computaçäo, Universidade Federal do Ceará). The French partners are research teams from several Inria research centers.
