HPC Infrastructure for Grand Challenges of Science and Engineering (POWIEW)
The POWIEW project provides world-class High Performance Computing (HPC) systems for Polish Science, enabling research at previously unavailable scales. The POWIEW infrastructure represents a significant evolution of computational resources available in Polish HPC centers which in the last few years has been dominated by clusters. The research infrastructure within POWIEW is open to all researchers and their collaborators with potential for high international impact in their field of study.
One of the major objectives of POWIEW is to create new interdisciplinary research groups consisting of highly qualified programmers and researchers collaborating within the project. Competence Centers built in this way focus on optimization of existing computational models and creation of new HPC solutions addressing Grand Challenges of
science and engineering. The POWIEW infrastructure is based on leading Peta-scale generation supercomputer architectures. The computing systems were selected to provide high levels of sustained performance on a range of significant real-world science and engineering applications.
Project is lead by the partership of three Polish HPC Centers. Members of the POWIEW Consortium are Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), Academic Computer Centre CYFRONET and Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC).
