PRACE – The European HPC Infrastructure at SC11

PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, welcomed SC’11 visitors to the PRACE activities in Seattle, WA, on November 14–17 at booth #5001 (Level 6)!

PRACE Council Chair, Prof. Achim Bachem (FZJ, Germany) gave a keynote speech entitled “PRACE – a vision for a sustainable European HPC infrastructure” on Thursday, November 17 at 8.30am–9.15am.

On Thursday, November 17 at 12:15pm–1:15pm PRACE organized a BoF session entitled “PRACE – The European HPC Infrastructure”. In this BoF, PRACE Project Manager, Dr. Thomas Eickermann (FZJ, Germany) gave a presentation entitled “Experiences and perspectives after one year of PRACE Operation”.

A PRACE user’s point of view was given by Ph. D., Research Group Leader Mariano Vázquez (BSC, Spain) in a presentation entitled: “High Performance Computational Biomechanics and PRACE: The perfect marriage.”

The BoF included information on PRACE’s Tier-0 and Tier-1 services, and outstanding research results achieved with PRACE resources. This was an excellent opportunity to learn how to apply for resources and application support. PRACE representatives were on hand to chat about everything PRACE, and answer any questions you may have.

PRACE also organized a treasure hunt at the SC’11 PRACE booth (#5001).
