E-mail Print
Users Meeting to be organized by CSTRC on February 20th in Istanbul, Turkey

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

Location: Sabanci University

Local Organizers: Prof. Ugur Sezerman

This Users Meeting is co-organized by the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CSTRC) of the Cyprus Institute (CyI) and Sabanci University. The meeting is aimed at current or potential HPC users within the Turkish 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 (CSTRC)

The meeting will include presentations from representatives of CSTRC, 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.
