While medical professionals are working around the clock to help those affected by COVID-19, PRACE partners, HPC centres, and research infrastructures are doing their bit by opening up their facilities for urgent/priority access to the HPC systems and other resources to support the research to combat the coronavirus. Below we are listing these initiatives.
Considering the current situation with many organisations putting travel bans in place, and local and national governments ordering quarantine perimeters around clusters of infections, we have come to the conclusion that continuing EuroHPC Summit Week 2020 is untenable and have therefore decided to cancel the event.
The 21st Call for Proposals of PRACE Project Access welcomes a new system and more access that ever to GPUs. Overall, the Call includes 10 systems, including a completely new one (JUWELS Booster). The 21st Call will offer more GPUs than ever before to researchers on three different systems (Piz Daint, Marconi100 and JUWELS Booster).
The 2020 edition of the EuroHPC Summit Week will take place from 23 to 27 March 2020 in Porto, Portugal, and will include the seventh edition of PRACE’s Scientific and Industrial Conference (PRACEdays20), the European edition of the BDEC conference, and a special programme of “Hands-on Workshops for Students”.
