Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and Arm Research have signed a multi-year agreement to establish the Arm-BSC Centre of Excellence. This is in recognition of the leadership and hard work of BSC in pioneering Arm in High Performance Computing (HPC), and the success of EU-funded MontBlanc projects, of which both institutions are a main partner, alongside Atos Bull.
BSC and Arm will continue to innovate in computer architecture, runtime systems, programming models for performance portability, and many other areas.
Arm awards Centre of Excellence status to a small number of research institutions with whom to build long-term strategic partnerships, including collaborative research projects, co-authored publications and joint PhD studentships. The Arm-BSC Centre of Excellence has been established with these long term aims in mind, both in terms of the research that will be conducted within the centre as well as enabling research more widely. Together, BSC and Arm will continue to promote dissemination and outreach activities in Europe using Arm technologies, and Arm will support BSC’s participation in the Student Cluster Competition, the most relevant HPC contest for undergraduate students.
