Making HPC Simple for Small Companies

In the third report from the PRACEdays15 meeting in Dublin, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World discusses how supercomputing can be made simpler for smaller companies.

Contrasting how Japan and Europe Promote the Use of HPC

Europe and Japan have come to the same conclusion; HPC resources must be shared and not monopolized by the individual owners of the computer systems themselves. And both have set up bodies to coordinate that process of sharing which bear remarkable resemblances to each other.

Will Europe be First to Exascale?

“The strengths and the limitations of Europe’s supercomputing strategy were laid out at the PRACEDdays15 conference in Dublin at the end of May, with the minds of many delegates concentrated by the announcement in the USA over the course of the past few months of the $425 million ‘Coral’ procurement, intended to develop supercomputers that will leapfrog the international competition and open up the way to an Exascale machine.”

PRACEdays15 Puts the Spotlight on Irish HPC

In this report from PRACEdays15 conference in Dublin last week, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World looks at the role of HPC in the host country, Ireland.

Why Hardware is Leaving Software Behind

In the first report from last week’s PRACEdays15 conference in Dublin, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World considers why so much Exascale software will be open source and why engineers are not using parallel programs.

Women in HPC to Teach Supercomputing at PRACE Days15

As part of PRACE Days15 next month, the Women in HPC Network will conduct a general introduction session on High Performance Computing.

Women in HPC to be Featured in PRACE Digest

The European PRACE initiative is collaborating with the Women in HPC organization to publish two magazines dedicated to Women in High Performance Computing. The cover of at least one of these magazines will include a mosaic or collage of pictures of women working in HPC in Europe, and they need to collect as many photographs as possible.
