IFP Energies nouvelles organized SimRace, the first conference in the Rencontres Scientifiques series entirely devoted to numerical methods and High Performance Computing (HPC) for industrial fluid flows.

For many applied fields dealing with complex fluid flows, like petroleum basins or reservoirs, automotive or aerospace engines, refining processes, etc., there is today an increasing need for ever faster and more accurate simulations.

SimRace offered the opportunity to mix HPC and numerical analysis in a synergistic way, bringing together scientists and engineers and providing a melting pot of ideas and views between researchers, developers and end-users.
SimRace was the place to be for exchanging knowledge at the forefront of progress in both fields, with a special focus on:

  • High-performance computational and programming models for emerging architectures
  • Scalable linear solvers
  • Numerical schemes on general meshes for complex flows
  • Multi-scale methods and model coupling
  • Challenging exaflopic applications

The SimRace International Conference was definitely be the right place for sharing on the challenge of designing new computational methods for exaflopic scale applications.
