The development of nuclear fusion devices e.g. in the
international ITER experiment, has reached a state in which the feasibility to
generate electrical power has to be demonstrated. In the design of such devices
theoretical modelling and computer simulation are crucial steps. Especially the
design and construction of ITER requires intensive simulations of plasma
physics, the different components and their interaction.
With growing size and complexity of future devices modelling and simulation often exceed the computational capabilities of local infrastructures.
Parallel and distributed technologies such as Grid, High Performance and Cloud computing represent emerging solutions and promise researchers new scalable computational platforms. Current activities concentrate on utilizing new computing paradigms and infrastructures for the fusion community.
The aim of this special session is to present the latest efforts in parallel and distributed nuclear fusion applications and to bring together fusion and computer scientists. We invite you to contribute to this special session by submitting proposals in one or more of the categories outlined below. Topics of interest for fusion applications include, but are not limited to:
Supporting project: EUFORIA
EUFORIA (EU Fusion fOR Iter Applications) is a project funded by the European Union (FP7) which will provide a comprehensive framework and infrastructure for core and edge transport and turbulence simulation, linking Grid and High Performance Computing (HPC), to the fusion modelling community.
Authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract.
Proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS).
Papers submitted for the workshops or special sessions must be submitted through the conference submission system http://www.easychair.org with an indication of the name of the workshop/special session. Papers must adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review process as other papers submitted to the conference. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper at the Workshop.
