The Eleventh Call for Applications to SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) invites applications from European SMEs with an interesting idea that would benefit from High Performance Computing for increasing their competitiveness.
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”.
A doctoral dissertation taking place today at University of Jyväskylä, Finland, shows successful computer simulations that were able to predict the atom-precise structure of a cluster comprising 11 gold atoms. Later, the compound was observed to speed up decomposition of carbon dioxide. In his research M.Sc. Sami Kaappa used computer simulations to study properties of nanosized particles.
PRACE is happy to receive your nomination for the 2020 PRACE Ada Lovelace Award. The nomination process is fully open via this Call for Nominations published on the PRACE website and via different social media channels.
Serge Bogaerts, PRACE Managing Director was delighted to give the PRACE Summer of HPC Awards 2019 to Benjamin Huth and Pablo Lluch for their exceptional performance and outreach during their participation in the Summer of HPC 2019. The Award Ceremony was held on Wednesday 6 November 2019 at the PRACE office in Brussels, Belgium.
PRACE is delighted to announce that Dr. Alice-Agnes Gabriel, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences Geophysics, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich (LMU) is the winner of the 2020 PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC for her outstanding contributions to and impact on HPC in Europe.
Researchers at the Nanoscience Center and Faculty of Information Technology in the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, have achieved a significant step forward in predicting atomic structures of hybrid nanoparticles. The work was carried out using supercomputing resources at CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd., Finland and at the Barcelona supercomputing center (BSC), Spain, as a part of a PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) project.
