Instruction for users

   Configuration of JFRS-1

   User support

In addition to first level support (including documentation) provided by HPC centers, the support provided to users includes:

  • the supply of high-level support for the usage of Marconi100 (EUROfusion)
  • the supply of support to high priority simulation activities (QST)

Regarding high-level support for the usage of Marconi100, 

  • A best practice guide (Marconi100) was prepared by HLST addressing architecture, submission system, pinning, benchmarks and real code performance, node usage, OpenMPI library
  • The first joint workshop on the usage of accelerated devices for fusion took place in December 2020.
  • Japanese users are invited to monthly webinar organized by EUROfusion.

Regarding the support to high priority simulation activities, QST is providing support to a first set of 3 projects jointly selected: MISONIC, TOKEDGE and MULTEI from BA simulation projects in JFRS-1 in FY 2020.

   Publication acknowledgement

The participants must agree to acknowledge EUROfusion and QST when the results of the projects are presented and published.

A suitable acknowledgement is as follows: “This work was carried out (partially) using supercomputer resources provided under the EU-JA Broader Approach collaboration in the Computational Simulation Centre of International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC-CSC).”
