Virtual Institute — High Productivity Supercomputing

Leading-Edge HPC Programming Tools

The mission of the Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS) is to improve the quality and accelerate the development process of complex simulation codes in science and engineering that are being designed to run on highly-parallel computer systems. For this purpose, we are developing integrated state-of-the-art programming tools for high-performance computing that assist programmers in diagnosing programming errors and optimizing the performance of their applications.

We combine the expertise of twelve partner institutions, each with a strong record of high-performance computing research.

The collaboration of the partners has been initiated with sponsorship by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. Helmholtz centers and universities establish virtual institutes to concentrate research capacities and thereby create centers of excellence of international standing in key areas of research.
