The unifying drive of the CDT in Next Generation Computational Modelling was education, application and further development of state-of-the-art computer simulation methodology to advance insight and progress in academia and industry.

Computer simulation methodology includes:

  • software engineering for sustainable research codes (eg test-driven development, version control, agile project management)
  • professionalism in conducting simulation-led research (eg validation, verification, managing big data, standard problems)
  • exploitation of emerging computational platforms (many-core, GPUs, Cloud, …)
  • innovation in simulation algorithms (e.g., numerical methods, multi-physics, multi-scale, multi-paradigm)
