HEP-CCE: Promoting Computational Excellence

HEP-CCE Coordinators: Salman Habib (Argonne), Kerstin Kleese Van Dam (Brookhaven), Rob Roser (Fermilab), and Peter Nugent (Lawrence Berkeley)

The HEP-CCE is a cross-cutting initiative to promote excellence in high performance computing (HPC) including data-intensive applications, scientific simulations, and data movement and storage. Enhancing connections with DOE’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program is an important part of the Center’s activities. This includes promoting future-looking R&D initiatives in exascale architectures and systems, intelligent networking, and new data management and data analysis tools. Although the HEP-CCE is not a service-oriented entity, limited resources are available to support collaborative computing efforts for the HEP community, including a common GitHub repository for open source codes, a website for aggregating useful information, and expertise within and without HEP for solving computational problems via the Expert Forum. The HEP-CCE also sponsors topical workshops and student training programs.


Registration is now open for the Scaling to Petascale Institute, which will be held June 26-30, 2017. The petascale institute is a collaboration between multiple institutions. The purpose of the institute is for people who are developing, modifying, and supporting research projects to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to petascale and emerging extreme-scale computing systems. Basic familiarity with Linux, programming, and MPI are recommended. The agenda includes introductory and advanced MPI, OpenMP, scaling, profiling, and debugging, GPU programming, OpenACC, Phi programming, scientific libraries, Parallel I/O, HDF5, Globus, and software engineering.
