The December edition of the PRACE newsletter is out with an interview with Prof. Richard Kenway, who leads the PRACE Scientiﬁc Steering Committee.
The SSC advises the PRACE Council on all scientiﬁc and technical matters. In particular, it oversees the peer review process for the allocation of PRACE resources. The most important objective of the SSC at this stage is to gain the conﬁdence of the scientiﬁc community that PRACE resources are being allocated openly and fairly, and operated appropriately, to support the best science. That way, PRACE will attract the best science. This pursuit of scientiﬁ cexcellence above all else will be key to our success, both to justify continued investment by the PRACE partners and to ensure Europe remains competitive in exploiting strategically vital HPC technologies.
At insideHPC, we believe that PRACE is an organization to watch. Funded by the European Union, PRACE is the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, providing member countries with world-class systems for science to strengthen the region’s scientific and industrial competitiveness.
