The European Exascale Software Initiative:

The objective of this Support Action, co-funded by the European Commission is to build a european vision and roadmap to address the challenges of the new generation of massively parallel systems composed of millions of heterogeneous cores which will provide multi-Petaflop performances in the next few years and Exaflop performances in 2020**. 


  • More information on the project and its structure and objectives are available in the section Project.

  • Details on Work Groups and experts involved can be found in the section "Working Groups"


*The speed of a supercomputer is measured in "FLOPS", FLoating Point Operations Per Second, "Petascale" supercomputers can process 1015  FLOPS. Exascale supercomputers can process 1018 FLOPS, one million teraflops. 

Dublin, Ireland, on 28 May and 29 May 2015

Our EESI2 Final Conference will take place, back-to-back with PRACEdays15, in Dublin, Ireland, on 28 May (Start 14:00) and 29 May 2015 (End 12:00 noon).

More information will follow soon!

Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing

In the past three years, the United States, the European Union, and Japan have each moved aggressively to develop their own plans for achieving Exascale computing in the next decade. Such concerted planning by the traditional leaders of HPC speaks eloquently about both the substantial rewards that await the success of... Read More
