PyCOMPSs as an instrument for Translational Computer Science

This paper describes our experience with the PyCOMPSs project, a programming model for distributed computing. While it is a research instrument for our team, it has also been applied in multiple real use cases under the umbrella of European Funded projects or as part of internal projects between various departments at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). The paper illustrates how the authors have engaged in TCS as an underlying research methodology, collecting experiences from three European projects. [...]

Pre-Exascale HPC-approaches for Molecular Dynamics simulations. Covid-19 research: a use case

Exascale computing has been a dream for ages and is close to become a reality that will impact the way in which molecular simulations are being performed and the quantity and quality of the information derived for them. We review how the biomolecular simulations field is anticipating these new architectures, making emphasis in recent work from groups in the BioExcel Center of Excellence for High Performance Computing.
