This year’s PSNC exhibition stand, accompanying the ISC 2023 conference, is dedicated to the use of data infrastructure and HPC (High Performance Computing) to build IT services and support projects from the Polish Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, such as: National Data Storage (NDS), PRACE-LAB and PRACE-LAB2, financed from the structural funds of the Smart Growth Operational Programme under Measure 4.2 (building research infrastructure for science). The slogan of the booth is ‘PSNC – your partner in innovation’, intended to emphasise the important role that PSNC plays in European projects.
ISC High Performance is one of the world’s largest events related to high performance computing. This year, more than 3,000 participants and 130 exhibitors came to Hamburg for the five-day conference (21-25 May 2023).
Among the exhibitors from all over the world, the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center is also presenting its achievements and projects from the Polish Roadmap for Research Infrastructures:
- PRACE-LAB – Project no. POIR.04.02.00-00-B001/18,
- PRACE-LAB2 – Project no. POIR.04.02.00-00-C003/19 entitled “PRACE-LAB2 – Collaboration in Advanced Computing in Europe” co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under Measure 4.2 of the Smart Growth Operational Programme,
- NATIONAL DATA STORAGE (NDS) – Project no. POIR.04.02.00-00-D010/20 “National Data Storage. Universal infrastructure for sharing, storage and effective processing of large data volumes in HPC, Big Data and artificial intelligence models” co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under Measure 4.2 of Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014-2020.
In addition to learning about the details related to the scientific and research projects carried out by PSNC, visitors have a unique opportunity to take part in a challenge to build an HPC cluster on their own.
