The 2nd Steering Committee meeting of COMPOSELECTOR project took place in Bordeaux on 14 of June 2017 hosted by ESI-Group (Dr P. De LUCA and Dr S. Mueller).  The Project’s results for the previous six-month period and work plan for June 2017-December 2017 were presented and dicusssed during this meeting. All project partners have participated in the meeting and appreciated project achievements.

COMPOSELECTOR organised a training on MuPIF training at the University of Prague on the 27th and 28th of March 2017.  MuPIF is a Multi-Physics Integration Platform developed in the framework of a former European Project. MuPIF will be used in the context of COMPOSELECTOR project to facilitate the implementation of the multi-physics and multi-level simulations built from independently developped components. The main role of the platorm is to steer individual components (applications) and to provide high-level data exchange services. Each application should implement an interface that allows to steer application and execute data requests. The design supports vaious coupling strategies, decretization techniques, and also distributed applications.
