At the end of June 2012 PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, published its first Scientific Annual Report. The report is available for online reading and download on http://www.prace-ri.euand printed editions can now also be ordered.
The first edition of the PRACE Scientific Annual Report covers a range of topics, including success stories from research done on PRACE Tier-0 high performance supercomputers, interviews with Prof. Anne Glover (Chief Scientific Advisor to Commission President Barroso) and Prof. & Dr. Achim Bachem (Chairman of the Board of Directors of Jülich Research Centre, Germany), in-depth information about the PRACE Peer Review Process and Calls for Proposals, as well as features on HPC resources, the PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATC) and the PRACE Awards winners.
“I am very proud of this first edition of the PRACE Scientific Annual Report. It reflects the day-to-day team work of PRACE staff and members and shows the potential for growth still to come. I am already looking forward to 2013’s edition!” says Maria Ramalho, PRACE Managing Director.
“After years of hard work to establish a Europe-wide infrastructure, we are starting to see the benefits to science from being able to run simulations on the most powerful computers in the world. Each of the highlighted projects reports a breakthrough in understanding and there will be much more in years to come, as PRACE resources grow to meet the ambition of computational scientists across an ever expanding range of disciplines.” says Richard Kenway, Chairman of the PRACE Scientific Steering Committee.
