13 Status of the AURORA project AURORA is a High-Performance computing (HPC) project for science and engineering administered scientifically by ECT* Joint effort between PAT / INFN / FBK-ECT* / U of Trento / FEM / ATreP / DEI PADUA and industrial partners EUROTECH and INTEL

14 Start up of AURORA Letter of Sep. 21 to about 60 potential users and 10 officials (PAT, FBK, INFN, UNITN, …) Dear colleagues, this is to inform you that the first installation of the machine has been completed. AURORA is situated in a special room in the North building of FBK within the premises of the planned Laboratorio Interdisciplinare per le Scienze Computationali (LISC). As of today 32 boards are operational corresponding to a peak power of 5 Teraflops. This is already the first part of the AURORA prototype which will within the next months reach a computing power of about 20 Teraflops aimed for the first phase of AURORA. Since available computing power is now much higher than the one of the testing boards some of you have already used for benchmark computations until now, we strongly encourage you to adapt your codes to the newly installed system at LISC for real calculations. For instructions and help Dr. Marco Cristoforetti and Dr. Luigi Scorzato at the ECT* are available. With this High Performance Computing (HPC) installation an important milestone of the AuroraScience project has been achieved. It is of upmost importance now that the machine is used for real applications. The results are a prerequisite for the continuation of the project into the second phase (100 Teraflops). Thank you for your work. We are looking forward to many exciting scientific results. Best wishes, Achim Richter Luigi Scorzato

15 Roadmap for AuroraScience Collaboration Report writing about the results of the 1 st phase is in progress submitted by the end of Oct. 2010 Report is the basis of the application for the funding of the 2 nd phase (starting hopefully August 01, 2011) Call for AuroraScience proposals and define the procedure for selecting proposals and assigning time to run them on AURORA

16 Budget and Status of Funding Estimate for 2010 FBK / PAT + Outside funds (European Funding Agencies, HP 2, QUITE, AURORA, …) In 2011500 k + ? In 2010498 k +1.688 k2.186 Mio [In 2009: 534 k +618 k =1.152 Mio] [In 2008: 736 k+539 k=1.275 Mio]

18 FP7 / Hadron Physics2 and Hadron Physics3 HP2 project has been prolonged until 31/12/2011 First Periodic Report of the HP2 project covering 18 months from 01/01/2009 until 30/06/2010 has been submitted to the office of the HP2 Project Coordinator, Carlo Guaraldo / Frascati. A new Proposal for HP3 (2012 - 2014) built on upgrading of excellence of the presently running HP2 project has been submitted to the office of the HP Project Coordinator, Carlo Guaraldo / Frascati, at the end of August 2010. At the HP2 Collaboration Committee Meeting and the HP3 Kick-off Meeting on September 16-18 in Paris I have presented a report on Transnational Access to ECT* in the period 01/01/09 – 30/06/10 and have given an outlook upon HP3. Total amount allocated to HP2from 01/01/09 – 31/12/11:434.000 Amount spent for workshops, Scientific Board and travel from 01/01/09 – 30/06/10:213.259 Remaining amountfor 01/07/10 – 31/12/11:220.741

19 European Nuclear Science and Applications Research ENSAR Funded EU-FP7 project for the period Sep 01, 2010 – Aug 31, 2014 and coordinated by Mushin Harakek / KVI Groningen ECT* is a member of the JRA07 THEXO (Theoretical tools in support of infrastructures) with Paul-Henri Heenen / ULB being the spokesperson ECT* will obtain 51.9 k for Workshops Will attend a THEXO coordination meeting on October 26, 2010 in Brussels
