PRACE Workshop on HPC Approaches on Life Sciences and Chemistry

February 17 – 18, 2012
Dedeman Sofia Hotel Princes, Sofia, Bulgaria

During two full day sessions we plan to have researchers of various of PRACE Project groups to present their results and plans for further research as well as their success stories in the application of supercomputers to science, industry, medicine and environmental protection.

Prominent researchers from a wide range of scientific communities will present their achievements and give their opinions on the current and future trends of HPC. They will outline their results, discuss success stories in adapting HPC systems to different disciplines, all the while focusing on difficulties encountered and possible solutions.

The seminar will be concluded by a panel discussion where PRACE HPC experts, together with researchers, will discuss possible improvements to the services that the current HPC ecosystem provides.

The final goal is to make this PRACE Workshop on HPC Approaches on Life Sciences and Chemistry to answer important questions like why HPC needs to be invested in and how HPC can bring visible and tangible influence to peoples’ lives.

The following lecturers, from other than Bulgaria countries, confirmed their participation: Ivan Girotto (ICHEC, Ireland), Vit Vondrak (VSB, Czech Republic), Vassil Aleksandrov (BSC, Spain), Murat Manguoglu (METU, Turkey), Danica Stojilkovic (IPB, Serbia), Christopher Johnson (EPCC, UK), Zdenec Dostal (VSB, Czech Republic).
