Task 7.2 "Application Enabling with communities has the objective of developing relationships with important European applications communities and provide petascaling expertise to ensure that their key applications codes can effectively exploit Tier-0 systems. Deliverable D7.2.1 represents the interim report documenting the collaboration with scientific communities in the first year of activity of PRACE 1IP. The document presents the methodology adopted to identify the scientific communities

In addition, we include progress reports describing the activity which has been performed for each application. So far, eleven key application codes which are of value to the main scientific communities at European level have been selected for petascaling in Task 7.2. The applications are: GROMACS and DL-POLY for Molecular Dynamics; Quantum Espresso and CP2K, for Material Science; GPAW for Nanoscience; DALTON for Computational Chemistry; EUTERPE for Plasma Physics; the EC-Earth 3 suite for Meteo-climatology, SPECFEM3D for Earth Sciences (earthquakes) and OpenFOAM and Code_Saturne for Engineering and CFD. For these applications, a long term collaboration is envisaged (in terms of 8-10 PM from Task 7.2, in some cases with the support of Task 7.5 and Task 7.6). For these eleven applications a total effort of around 100 PM from Task 7.2 has been allocated. It should be emphasized that the petascaling work involves also the owners of the application codes, or the scientific communities interested in the codes. They are collaborating actively with the PRACE staff, providing their own effort in terms of PM and expertise. For five of these applications (GROMACS, Quantum Espresso, GPAW, EC-Earth 3 and OpenFOAM) the enabling work started in December 2010 and some preliminary results are presented. For the remaining six applications the work started in May 2011 after the selection process and the agreements with the scientific communities on th [...]
