From 18th to 20th October 2016 the 1st ESCAPE Dissemination and Training Workshop on “Towards Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for Weather- and Climate Prediction: Status and Prospects” took place at the Konventum Conference Centre (Elsinore/ Helsingor, Denmark). In total, around 50 researchers and students attended the event from universities, research institutions and companies giving 24 oral presentations.

The topics of the workshop included - Weather and Climate Dwarfs (aspects and fundamental algorithmic building blocks underlying weather and climate services), Code Adaptation Approaches (addressing heterogeneous architectures), Hybrid Computing (optimizing the exploitation of alternative technologies and specialized accelerators), and Benchmarking and Diagnostics (gauging code efficiency and energy consumption for regional and global NWP applications).


Presentations and outcome of the discussions are available at the web-page of the workshop.
