PRACE – The European HPC Infrastructure at ISC 2011
ISC 2011 took place in Hamburg. PRACE was present there with a BoF on Tuesday 21 June 2011 titled “E-infrastructures for science in Europe” and also presented the PRACE Award at ISC’11.
The following presentations were presented at the BoF:
- HPC: PRACE, HP-SEE, and HPC-Europa2
- E-Infrastructure for Science in Europe – EGI
- e-IRG -e-Infrastructure Reflexion Group
For the fourth time, the PRACE Award will be presented at the ISC Opening Session. Authors of thepapers submitted for the ISC’11 Research Paper Sessions are potential winners.
PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, uses this opportunity to boost science by investing in the future generation of scientists. For the fourth time in a row PRACE will award a prize to the best scientific paper by a European student or young scientist in one of the following areas:
- A breakthrough in science achieved with high performance computing resources
- Algorithms or implementations that achieve significant improvements in scalability
- Novel approaches to performance evaluation on massively parallel architectures.
The PRACE Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) will select the paper to receive the award from all the papers submitted to the ISC Scientific Sessions.
The winner of the PRACE Award will receive sponsorship for participation in a training event or a conference relevant to petascale computing and will have the opportunity to give a keynote talk on their work during the scientific sessions in Hamburg.
The International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) is a key global conference and exhibition for high performance computing, networking and storage. It will be held from June 19–23 2011 in Hamburg, Germany. Now in its 26th year, ISC’11 will once again reunite over 2,000 like minded HPC researchers, technology leaders, scientists and IT-decision makers. A world-class exhibition on supercomputing, storage and networking vendors also awaits the visitors.
PRACE will be at booth #125 of the exhibition.
