The Scientific Case for a European Super Computing Infrastructure

The High Performance Computing in Europe Taskforce was formed by representatives of European countries interested in shaping the European High Performance Computing Infrastructure. HET has set the framework of a European policy in the area of High Performance Computing. HET reports to the countries represented in the present Taskforce and to the e-IRG. The Taskforce was chaired by Kimmo Koski from CSC (Finland). HPC in Europe was founded in Vienna, Austria, on 7 June 2006 in a meeting initiated by prof. dr. Dieter Kranzlmüller, acting as chair of e-IRG.
