A PRACE user’s point of view is 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 includes information on PRACE’s Tier-0 and Tier-1 services, and outstanding research results achieved with PRACE resources. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to apply for resources and application support. PRACE representatives will be on hand to chat about everything PRACE, and answer any questions you may have.
