The use of modelling and numerical simulation technologies has become essential across many fields of science and industry. Given the increasing volumes of digital data, high-performance computing is one of the keys to success, making it possible to calculate faster with ever larger volumes of data.


  • user round table: Who is high performance computing for and how to make it a strategic tool for your organization?
  • presentation of the "Mod-Sim Academy" training programme
  • visit of the Centrale Nantes supercomputer
The supercomputer was installed at Centrale Nantes as part of the Connect Talent project in the Pays de la Loire region. It is one of the most powerful in its category in France (Tier-2).

Round table panel:
  • Nicolas VINCE, CRTI/INSERM researcher, [1] "Translational ImmunoGenetic in AutoImmunity and Transplantation" team headed up by Prof. Pierre-Antoine GOURRAUD
  • Mickael TARDY, Technical Director of HERA-MI [2], research collaboration with the SIMS team, LS2N laboratory
  • François RONGERE, R&D engineer, D-ICE Engineering [3] and project manager for Weamec/FRyDoM [4].
"Mod-Sim Academy" Executive Education Programme:
The High Performance Computing Institute is launching its first executive education training programme in high perfomance computing this autumn, with invaluable support from Centrale Nantes' Executive Education Department. This course will allow participants to:
  • take their first steps using a supercomputer
  • make optimal use of a parallel application
  • learn about parallel visualization tools
  • discover version control systems (Git, for example)
  • programme in MPI or OpenMP
  • develop applications for graphics accelerators (GPUs)
  • and so on
