At Science Node, we need your help. We have ALMOST reached our fund-raising goal. In order to maintain our independence as a source of unbiased news and information, we don’t take money from big tech corporations. That’s why we’re asking our readers to help us raise the final $10,000 we need to meet our budget for the year. Donate now to Science Node's Gofundme campaign. Thank you!
PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, welcomes SC’11 visitors to the PRACE activities in Seattle, WA, on November 14–17. Visit us at our booth #5001 (Level 6)!
PRACE Council Chair, Prof. Achim Bachem (FZJ, Germany) will give a keynote speech entitled “PRACE - a vision for a sustainable European HPC infrastructure” on Thursday, November 17 at 8.30am–9.15am in room TCC 303/304.
On Thursday, November 17 at 12:15pm–1:15pm PRACE organizes a BoF session entitled “PRACE – The European HPC Infrastructure” in room TCC 301/302. In this BoF, PRACE Project Manager, Dr. Thomas Eickermann (FZJ, Germany) will give a presentation entitled “Experiences and perspectives after one year of PRACE Operation”. A PRACE user’s point of view is given by Ph. D., Research Group Leader Mariano Vázquez (BSC, Spain) in a presentation entitled: “High Performance Computational Biomechanics and PRACE: The perfect marriage.”
The BoF includes information on PRACE’s Tier-0 and Tier-1 services, and outstanding research results achieved with PRACE resources. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to apply for resources and application support. PRACE representatives will be on hand to chat about everything PRACE, and answer any questions you may have.
PRACE also organizes a treasure hunt at the SC’11 PRACE booth (#5001). Don’t miss the chance to win a great prize! PRACE is also presented at PRACE partners’ booths.
