Registration Opens for HPC User Forums in Switzerland and Scotland

Steve Conway and Earl Joseph of Hyperion Research

Registration is now open for a pair of HPC User Forum events coming up in October. The first event takes place Oct. 7-8 at CSCS in Lugano and the second event takes place Oct. 10-11 at EPCC in Edinburgh.

The HPC User Forum Steering Committee and Hyperion Research invite interested HPC community members to reserve a seat at one or both HPC User Forum meetings that will take place during the same week at CSCS (the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, Lugano) and EPCC/University of Edinburgh in October. The meetings will begin and end at midday, to make same-day travel easier. Registration and food/refreshments are free, but space is strictly limited. Seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We look forward to seeing you in October.

The HPC User Forum was established in 1999 to promote the health of the global HPC industry and address issues of common concern to users. The organization has grown to 150 members. It is directed by a volunteer Steering Committee of users from government, industry and academia, and operated for the users.
