Nordic High Performance Computing & Applications Workshop

Nordic High Performance Computing & Applications Workshop

13-15 June 2018, University of Iceland, Reykjavík

Registration deadline extended to 11. June 2018.

After the successful 2017 workshop, the University of Iceland is offering a free cross-national training workshop on high-performance computing and applications at the University of Iceland in Reykjavík, Iceland, 13-15 June 2018 (noon-to-noon).

The University of Iceland () has resident expertise in software engineering, distributed computing, and closely collaborates with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in High-Performance Computing (HPC) research and teaching. The university's Division of Information Technology (UTS) has expertise in cross-national Nordic scientific computing through having hosted the Nordic High Performance Computing (NHPC) cluster Garðar and now on the national level with the Icelandic HPC cluster (IHPC) Garpur. Iceland, in particular the University of Iceland, furthermore has a strong user community, e.g. in computational physics and chemistry, systems biology, and glaciology.

The workshop is organized in cooperation with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), associated with the NordForsk e-science NCoE eSTICC (e-Science Tools for Investigating Climate Change), the European Horizon 2020 Pre-Exascale computing project DEEP-EST and the European Horizon 2020 project SIMDAS(Centre of Excellence in Simulation and Data Science), and funded via NordForsk's Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) Pooling Competencies focus area.

Note that there is another course on research software development (which is not specific to HPC), namely the CodeRefinery workshop in Reykjavik 21-23 August 2018. While both are funded by NeIC, the topics and trainers are different.
