We are excited to announce the second edition of Ferrite.jl User & Developer Conference! This year we will meet at Ruhr University Bochum in Germany on October 6, 2023.
Please have a look at the webpage for more details.
Hope to see some of you in Bochum!
We have invited Michael Schlottke-Lakemper (@sloede) to give a keynote talk during the conference. The title and abstract:
Julia for scientific high-performance computing: opportunities and challenges
The Julia programming language aims to provide a modern approach to scientific computing and was designed with high-performance computing (HPC) in mind. As a consequence, a growing number of research groups are considering Julia as their language of choice for creating the next generation of computational fluid dynamics or structure mechanics codes. In this talk, we will thus discuss benefits of using Julia for such classical HPC workloads, and examine where challenges remain. For some practical insights, we will take a closer look at Trixi.jl, a numerical simulation framework for hyperbolic conservation laws that has been shown to scale efficiently to more than 50,000 MPI ranks, and share some of the lessons learned during its development.
Unfortunately this presentation will most likely happen online, but we still look forward to hear about experiences with Julia in general, and Trixi.jl in particular, in an HPC setting.
Note also that it is now roughly one week left to register! All details can be found on the conference website: Ferrite.jl User & Developer Conference .
FerriteCon starts at 10:00 am CET. For those of you who can’t make it in person, but are still interested, feel free to join the Zoom meeting
