E-mail Print
2nd Israeli User Meeting on December 1st in Haifa, Israel

Sponsors: the European Commission (DG-INFSO), the Cyprus Institute and the Technion

Location: Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Lidow Physics building, Rm 300 (morning) Rm 620 (afternoon)

Local Organizers: Dr. Joan Adler and Prof. Simon Brandon

This User Meeting is co-organized by the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC, of the Cyprus Institute (CyI, and the Technion. The meeting is aimed at current or potential HPC users within the Israeli scientific community and is part of the networking process conducted within the LinkSCEEM ( project. The objectives of this process are:

  1. To provide a forum where users and providers of high-performance computing (HPC) facilities in the Eastern Mediterranean can meet and exchange views and information
  2. To explore the available HPC infrastructures in the region, and the ways they currently serve their user communities
  3. To provide an opportunity for computational scientists from the region (both users and providers) to learn from the experiences of leaders of HPC centers in Western Europe and the US
  4. To lay the foundations of a user community around the planned HPC facility of the Cyprus Institute's Computation-based Research and Technology Research Center.

The meeting will include presentations from representatives of CaSToRC, LinkSCEEM and local scientific institutions. Current and potential HPC users will present their work and projects, and the related computational needs. The meeting will conclude with a round-table discussion that will focus on the required computational resources and connectivity.
