HPC User Forum to be hosted at Teratec in March 2018

3 Jan 2018 St. Paul - On behalf of the HPC User Forum Steering Committee, Hyperion Research, CEA and Teratec are inviting interested parties to attend the next and 70th HPC User Forum meeting in Europe. It will be held on March 6-7, 2018, midday to midday, in the Très Grand Centre de Calcul du CEA (TGCC) on the Teratec campus in Bruyères-le-Châtel, France, close to Paris. Registration is free of charge and meals and local transportation will also be provided at no cost.

The organizers have developed an exciting agenda with prominent speakers who will discuss the HPC strategies for Europe, Japan and the U.S.; new HPC technologies, applications and markets; and the proliferation of HPC in industrial and commercial environments. The preliminary agenda is ready and will be finalized soon.

Space for this important event is limited and the organizers expect strong demand. To reserve a place, you can register at the HPC User Forum website. The online registration form also allows you to book one of the block of reserved rooms at the Domaine de Fremigny, not far from the Teratec campus. The organizers will provide shuttle bus transportation to the meeting and back at times they specify. You are of course free to stay elsewhere if you prefer.
