3rd PRACE seminar: Europe goes HPC

3rd PRACE seminar: Europe goes HPC
As early as in March this year there will be another PRACE seminar, co-organized by the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center. The meeting in March, 28-29, will be hosted by the City of Stockholm.

Building on the great success of the previous seminars in Amsterdam and Toulouse, in which companies such as Airbus, Repsol, and SMEs like Free Field Technology or Numtech participated, PRACE is organising a third seminar dedicated to industrial users of HPC, who will have the opportunity to learn more about PRACE, and to influence PRACE plans. The seminar will act as a forum to develop or strengthen links with CTOs, CIOs and R&D managers coming from both large Corporations and SMEs, as well as Independent Software Vendors. PRACE invites entrepreneurs to discuss their HPC requirements and the best way for them to access the planned services.

This seminar is exclusively designed for CIOs, CTOs and R&D managers, responsible for designing, deploying and operating computing and data management infrastructures, or depending thereupon for the success of their enterprises. The seminar will provide decision-makers and leaders with a focus on the significant resources and expertise PRACE offers for high impact research and development and how enterprises can influence PRACE plans and the future of HPC in Europe. Representatives from industry and the European Commission are invited to share their views and learn about PRACE resources, services, education and training opportunities. Industries include the automotive, aerospace, consumer products, electronics, energy, entertainment, finance, forest, logistics, materials, pharmaceuticals, semiconductor, service, software, telecom as well as other industries and commercial sectors.

High Performance Computing (HPC) is becoming more and more important for companies who need to stay ahead of their competition – both in developing innovative products and offering high value services. The research infrastructure Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE AISBL), an International Association in Belgium with members in 20 European countries, has started to deploy a worldclass HPC Infrastructure, through a sustained program of investment in new systems. Two Tier-0 systems are already available in Germany and France and further deployments in Spain and Italy are Schedule offering high level HPC services to European scientists, as part of an initial investment plan of over 450M€ from 2010-2015. PRACE is committed to supporting projects from European industry from an early stage.
