Quloud-RSDFT Seminar


 We will hold a workshop on RSDFT (using our product Quloud) a large-scale first-principles computation software, jointly with with RIST (Research Organization for Information Science and Technology).

RSDFT is a first-principles electronic structure calculation software that has been developed as a key application in the materials science field in the K computer and Fugaku projects. Unlike first-principles software implemented with plane-wave basis functions, RSDFT does not require a fast Fourier transform, making it highly compatible with massively parallel computers.

 In 2011, the K computer received the ACM Gordon-Bell Award for the highest performance for first-principles electronic structure calculations of Si nanowire transistors on a scale of tens to hundreds of thousands of atoms.

 Although there are many software products that have been created because of academic research, there are also challenges that are too large to be borne solely by the researchers who developed the software, such as continuing their maintenance, improving their usability, and promoting their use.

 Under such circumstances, RSDFT is about to make a new start as a cloud service in the form of SaaS (Software as a Service).

 In this workshop, we will provide an opportunity to experience the future of supercomputers and cloud services by performing basic and applied calculations of first-principles materials simulations using RSDFT, which has become a cloud service.

 We look forward to your participation from educational institutions (affiliated hospitals and research institutes), national and independent administrative agencies, and R&D departments of general companies.
