The Danish EuroCC project officially began on the 1st of June 2020, and with the virtual kick-off Thursday the 18th of June, we are now truly well under way.
EuroCC is a big EU-project with participation from 34 European countries, that will bring together expertise to set up a network of National Competence Centers in HPC. The project is a part of the big EuroHPC project and the “CC” is the part where each country has to set up a national Competence Centre.
The field of astrophysics is a major consumer of supercomputer time and has a long tradition of using the powerful calculators that extend all the way back to the 1950s and the first computers in the world.
The research area is characterised by very large scales in time and space, which places massive demands on the ability of the IT departments.
The combination of supercomputers and technologies like for instance artificial intelligens is an essential cocktail, that will help to drive science and research activities and thereby strengthen Europe's competitiveness in the future. The European High Perfomance Computing initiative plays a key role in this.
Niels Brügger researches and writes about digital media history. In connection with his research, he has dived down into the Danish part of the World Wide Web and has analysed the historical web development between 2005 and 2015.
“It is a rather crazy project, and when I tell people about it, the reaction is often: “Aaarrhh, is that possible?” says Niels Brügger, newly appointed professor of Media Studies at Aarhus University.
PRACEdays18 is the central event of the European HPC Summit Week, and is hosted by PRACE’s Slovenian Member ULFME – University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The conference will bring together experts from academia and industry who will present their advancements in HPC-supported science and engineering.
PASC18 is the fifth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.
The Technical Reference Group on High Performane Computing, known as HPC TekRef is a group, where HPC technicians from the local and national HPC centers can share experiences with each other.
The purpose of the group is to facilitate sharing og experiences and mutual inspiration between the institutions.
Members of the group participates in the yearly super computing conference (SC) in USA, and prepares afterwards a report to DeiC containing an assesment of future technologies.
