This happened early in September, so it’s not exactly news anymore, but I wanted to cover it briefly anyway.
On Sep 3 PRACE hosted a one-day seminar focusing on HPC as a catalyst for European industrial competitiveness.
One of PRACE’s targets is to increase the interest for high-end computing and its potential for competitiveness as well as to raise awareness of the creation of a world class computing infrastructure in Europe for HPC applications.
The participating companies were: EDF, Repsol, ENI, CEA, Iberdrola, Total, GM, Porsche, Scania, Airbus, BAE, SNECMA, EADS, VOLVO AERO, Schering Plough, Novartis, AkzoNobel, Arcelor Mittal, Hutchinson, Phlilips, NXP, BNP Paribas, Société Générale, Alcatel Lucent, Renater, Cerfacs, CS, EDS, T-Systems, TER@TEC, Acumen, Gnodal, NAG, Allinea Numtech and RISC.
The presentations from the “Industrial Competitiveness: Europe goes HPC” are available on www.prace-project.eu/documents. PRACE is planning a second industry seminar in 2009.
