Bull launches the 2013 Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize, aimed at boosting the development of computer simulation

2 Jul 2013 Paris - Bull has just launched the 2013 Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize, aimed at boosting the development of computer simulation in France. Nowadays, computer simulation is used in virtually all forms of activity: from the search for new drugs to climate change research, from modelling earthquakes to the development of new materials for the automotive and aerospace industries. As a result of its current capabilities, and its future potential, computer simulation has become an absolutely essential tool for research, innovation and business competitiveness.

Against this backdrop, Bull and GENCI, the French national high-performance computing organisation, have just launched the 2013 Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize. Its aim? To boost the development of computer simulation in France and contribute to the development of a wide ecosystem encompassing computing centres, research laboratories and European businesses.

The 2013 Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize will recognize the work of an individual or a team in the field of application parallelization for computer simulation, carried out under the auspices of a French research facility, whether publicly or privately owned. The awards carry with them a first prize worth 15,000 euro. The Prize pays homage to Joseph Fourier, whose work made a huge contribution to the mathematical modelling of physical phenomena. The second and third prizes consist of machine time on GENCI supercomputers.

Submissions will initially be chosen by a selection committee, and subsequently evaluated by an independent judging panel including representatives from the French scientific and industrial communities. This panel will then award the first, second and third awards in the 2013 Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize. Submissions should be made by 25 October 2013 at the latest. The Prize will be awarded at the very beginning of 2014.

"The Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize clearly illustrates our commitment to support research into computing, both in France and Europe", stated Philippe Vannier, Bull's Chairman and CEO.

Joseph Fourier was an eminent French scientist who carried out most of his work in Paris and Grenoble, providing the mathematical tools that are vital to the mathematical modelling of physical phenomena. By establishing the Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize - in association with GENCI - Bull is paying homage to a major figure in the scientific world, whose work is widely used in computer simulation.
