Swedish e-Science Research Center Announced as Intel’s First oneAPI Center of Excellence, Focuses on Accelerating GROMACS

oneAPI logoThe Swedish e-Science Research Center (SeRC) announced that it has extended its support of the oneAPI initiative as Intel’s first oneAPI academic center of excellence (COE). Hosted at Stockholm University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the center will use oneAPI’s unified and heterogeneous programming model to accelerate research conducted with GROMACS, a widely-used free and open-source application designed for molecular dynamics simulation.

As a oneAPI COE, SeRC will work closely with Intel engineers on oneAPI performance optimizations across CPUs and GPUs used to investigate scenarios that would be extremely difficult to replicate in a traditional lab. This work will allow researchers using GROMACS to take full advantage of upcoming exascale machines powered by oneAPI to deliver unprecedented visibility into the molecular mechanisms of life.
