PRACEdays16 registration is now open

16 Feb 2016 Prague - PRACEdays16 will be held from 10 to 12 May 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic. Registration is open from 15 February until 29 April 2016 and a special hotel rate at the conference venue - Orea Pyramida Hotel - is available until 10 March. The conference fee is 60 euro per participant, which will give access to all sessions and the social programme. The PRACEdays16 programme will follow the tradition set by the 2014 and 2015 editions and will include international keynote presentations from high-level scientists and researchers from academia and industry, including among others Sharon Broude Geva, Director of Advanced Research Computing (ARC), University of Michigan, United States; Christoph Gümbel, Director Virtual Vehicle, Porsche AG, Germany; and Martin Winter, European Chemical Industry Council. The registration deadline is 29 April 2016.

On 11 May, 18 parallel sessions will provide opportunities to 12 scientists and 6 industrial researchers to present their work and interact with the audience. On the last day a closing panel moderated by Tom Wilkie ofScientific Computing Worldwill wrap up the conference. A poster session and cocktail reception, an Open Session of the PRACE User Forum, a networking dinner, and several Awards complete the three-day event.

The EXDCI project, coordinated by PRACE together with ETP4HPC, will organise workshops alongside PRACEdays16 on 9 and 12 May. Registration for the EXDCI workshop will be opened in the coming weeks and will be free of charge. The ETP4HPC workshop is on invitation only. The entire week including the EXDCI workshop, PRACEdays16, and the ETP4HPC Workshop forms the first edition of the European HPC Summit Week.

Sergi Girona of Barcelona Supercomputing Centre in Spain chairs the PRACEdays16 Organisation and Programme Committee (OPC) and with Veronica Teodor of Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Germany as Vice-Chair of the OPC. The other OPC members are: Alison Kennedy, Chair of the PRACE Board of Directors; Petros Koumoutsakos, future Chair of the PRACE Scientific Steering Committee; Anders Rhod Gregersen, Chair of the PRACE Industrial advisory Committee; Lee Margetts, Vice-Chair of the PRACE Industrial Advisory Committee; Koen Hillewaert, Chair of the PRACE User Forum; Marjolein Oorsprong, PRACE Communications Officer; Silke Lang PRACE Communications Assistant; and Karina Pesatova and Tomás Karásek of IT4Innovations as local hosts.

PRACEdays16 is organised by PRACE aisbl and IT4Innovations with funding from the EU's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (2014-2020) under grant agreement 653838.
