Thematic workshop on Lattice QCD at the physical pion mass: results, challenges and modern techniques

The workshop on Lattice QCD is part of the series of thematic workshops offered by the HPC-LEAP projet. The workshop includes introductory lectures on scale setting and renormalization and will also cover topics on recent results using gauge configurations at or close to the physical pion mass, algorithmic developments (multigrid and multi-level techniques), as well as new developments such as the direct computation of PDFs. Insights into the challenges of these state-of-the-art lattice QCD simulations will be provided by some of the key researchers working in the area, who will share their results and experience on physical pion mass simulations.

Limited spaces are available for students & researchers that are not affiliated with the HPC-LEAP programme.

Venue: Stiftung Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY), Zeuthen, Germany

Dates: 10 to 13 April 2017

To register and for further details visit the website of the workshop.

Registration for the workshop will remain open until 4 April 2017.

HPC-LEAP in a nutshell

Progress in computers and algorithms in the last years has made numerical simulation and modelling a key research methodology in both academia and industry, which in turn drives exascale computing in order to maintain excellence in research and innovation. A disruptive evolution in computer technologies is required for attaining exascale performances in the coming years bringing challenges that urgently need to be addressed across science and engineering fields. Therefore, new interdisciplinary strategies are required in order to educate the next generation of scientists to address such challenges enabling them to be at the forefront of their respective research fields. Instead of the traditional domain-specific training, integrated approaches are needed that can be best implemented by collaborative networks of universities, research institutes and industrial partners. HPC-LEAP is a highly interdisciplinary joint doctorate program realized by bringing together world-leading experts in applied mathematics, high performance computing technologies, particle and nuclear physics, fluid dynamics and life sciences to appropriately train researchers in Europe to exploit high performance computing, advance science and promote innovation. Students will be trained in mathematical and computational concepts underpinning current and future numerical simulations in turbulent flows, computational biology and lattice Quantum Chromodynamics. The research projects are designed to enhance collaborations and interactions across these disciplines, integrating non-academic partners, and to develop methodologies that efficiently use large-scale numerical simulations on future high performance computer systems. Students who complete this training program will be versatile to undertake highly interdisciplinary projects, well positioned to embark on a successful career in academia or the industrial sector.
