4th PRACE Implementation Phase project to hold kick-off meeting


25 May 2015 Ostrava - The Fourth PRACE Implementation Phase project (PRACE-4IP) has held its kick-off meeting on 28-29 April 2015. 113 participants from PRACE Members met in picturesque Ostrava in the Czech Republic.

On 1 February 2015 the PRACE-4IP project began and a kick-off meeting open for project participants took place on the VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava campus in Ostrava on 28-29 April 2015. PRACE aisbl and its Members collaborate in the PRACE-4IP project, which is a 27 month project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project is coordinated by Forschungzentrum Jülich (JUELICH) on behalf of PRACE aisbl.

PRACE-4IP is designed to build on and seamlessly continue the successes of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and start new innovative and collaborative activities that fit with the main objectives of the PRACE-4IP project:

  • Assisting the transition to PRACE 2
  • Strengthening the internationally recognised PRACE brand
  • Preparing strategies and best practices towards exascale computing
  • Coordinating and enhancing the operation of the multi-tier HPC systems and services
  • Supporting and educating users to exploit massively parallel systems and novel architectures.

The successful and well-organized meeting was hosted by the local PRACE partner, IT4Innovations.

The two-day meeting was an excellent opportunity for all the PRACE-4IP partners to meet and discuss planned activities and first steps in the seven different work packages.

The work package meetings took place on the first day, setting the stage for the parallel intra-work package sessions that took place on the second day. Each work package team discussed how best to fine tune activities of each work package in order to meet upcoming deliverable due dates and milestones.

An enjoyable social event took place in the Ostrava Planetarium on 28 April. This offered an excellent opportunity for partners to get to know one another and conduct informal discussions. Participants also enjoyed time to stroll the streets of scenic Ostrava, the third largest city in the Czech Republic, in the northeast of the country that forms the heart of the Moravian-Silesian region.
