Users Meeting organized by CaSToRC on February 9th in Athens, Greece

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

Location: OTE Academy, Athens, Greece (map, metro)

Local Organizers: Niki Alevizou

This Users Meeting was co-organized by the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) of the Cyprus Institute (CyI) and GRNET (Greek Research and Technology Network). The meeting was aimed at current or potential HPC users within the Greek 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 (CaSToRC)

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