Structure

The Joint Lab ExaESM is organized in two major scientific activities structuring the work of the lab.

Activity #1 Exascale code scalability: This activity seeks to enable the Exascale-readiness of ESM codes of the HGF partners, in particular by more and better parallelisation of the codes, performance portability and future-proofing, co-design and community coordination, and novel numerical methods.

Activity #2 Exascale workflow scalability: This activity focuses on the promotion of data-intensive sciences, generation of knowledge from data and models, interactive large-scale analysis workflows, hierarchical data architectures for data-intensive simulations, and FAIR data, metadata, and data portals.

Please see the activities‘ pages for further details.

Governance

The activities of the JointLab ExaESM are co-chaired by three colleagues of the HGF Research Field Aeronautics, Space, and Transport, the Research Field Earth and Environment, and the Research Field Information. The co-chairs are responsible for overall coordination, strategy development, communication, and reporting of the project.

Additionally, the two major scientific activities are each lead by two colleagues from different Helmholtz centres. The activity leads are responsible for coordination, creation of synergies, providing momentum to the team, and documentation of the work.
