June 2 ENERXICO Webinar: Energy Subsurface Exploration with HPC

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The ENERXICO project, a Europe-Mexico collaboration to develop performance simulation tools requiring exascale HPC and data intensive algorithms for energy sources, will conduct an online webinar on Wednesday, June 2 from 2:30-5 pm CEST. Registration is here: https://bit.ly/3y0W6w7

The webinar will focus on high-performance computing as an enabling technology for subsurface exploration, outlining developments both in HPC and geophysics and the role of the ENERXICO project in fostering new findings.

The webinar will have three parts: a section with three speakers presenting state-of-the-art results on this topic; a roundtable discussion about developments in HPC and geophysics; and a fun quiz for all attendees.
