IMEC, Intel, and five Flemish universities have opened the Flanders ExaScience Lab at IMEC’s research facility in Leuven, Belgium. The lab will develop software to run on Intel-based exascale computer systems. The ExaScience Lab will become part of Intel’s European research network, which consists of 21 labs employing more than 900 researchers. The Flanders ExaScience Lab will focus on enabling scientific applications, beginning with the simulation and prediction of electromagnetic activity in the space surrounding Earth’s atmosphere. “We are excited to embark on this innovative collaboration in Flanders, bringing together scientific expertise in the fields of space weather prediction, computational simulation, reliability, visualization, and performance modeling,” says Intel’s Stephen Pawlowski. The Flanders ExaScience Lab will include researchers from the University of Antwerp, Ghent University, Hasselt University, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
