SYSTEC’s Dr Roman Chertovskikh receives approval for Advanced Computing project

Dr Roman Chertovskikh, an integrated member of ARISE-LA/SYSTEC, has achieved a significant milestone in his research endeavours. His proposal was recently approved by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) in the 3rd call for Advanced Computing Projects. This highly competitive call, organized by the National Network for Advanced Computing (RNCA) and facilitated by the FCCN (FCT’s National Scientific Computing Unit), seeks to promote advancements in the field of advanced computing.

Dr Chertovskikh’s successful proposal has garnered him three million core hours on the state-of-the-art Oblivion supercomputers,  hosted at the High-Performance Computing Center of Évora University. This allocation, estimated to be worth around 40 thousand euros, will greatly enhance SYSTEC’s computational capabilities. It serves as a valuable resource for ongoing and future simulations involving large distributed systems, particularly in the areas of fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics.

The recognition bestowed upon Dr Chertovskikh’s proposal is a testament to ARISE-LA/SYSTEC’s excellence in research and innovation. Notably, SYSTEC’s proposals have consistently received support from the FCT in all calls for Advanced Computing Projects. This year, Dr Chertovskikh’s project stood out by achieving the highest classification in the evaluation panel dedicated to Earth and Environmental Sciences. Furthermore, it is the only proposal within that panel to secure 100% of the requested resources.

ARISE-LA/SYSTEC expresses its satisfaction and gratitude for the FCT’s unwavering support. Such recognition and allocation of resources enable the team to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and technological advancements. The computational power provided by the Oblivion supercomputers will further propel SYSTEC’s research capabilities, allowing for intricate and comprehensive simulations in their pursuit of knowledge.
