The ANTAREX research project, coordinated by Cristina Silvano from Politecnico di Milano, wins a 3 million euro grant in the H2020 Future and Emerging Technologies programme on High Performance Computing.
The project involves leading academic and industrial partners as well as CINECA, the Italian Tier-0 supercomputing centre and IT4i, the Czech Tier-1 supercomputing center.
Being one of the nineteen research projects in FET-HPC-2014, ANTAREX brings Politecnico di Milano on the forefront of the European research in High Performance Computing.
The main goal of the ANTAREX project is to provide a breakthrough approach to express by a Domain Specific Language the application self-adaptivity and to runtime manage and autotune applications for green and heterogeneous High Performance Computing systems up to the Exascale level.
The Consortium also includes three top-ranked academic partners (ETH Zurich, University of Porto, INRIA). Industrial partners include one of the Italian leading biopharmaceutical companies (Dompé) and the top European navigation software company (Sygic).
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 671623.
