18 May 2016 Prague - PRACEdays16 was held from 10 to 12 May 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic. More than 220 participants joined the plenary and parallel sessions for keynote presentations and discussions about and between science, industry and HPC.

This year for the first time, PRACEdays16 became the centre point of the European HPC Summit Week, which started with a workshop organized by EXDCI on 9 May, followed by a EuroLab4HPC workshop on 10 May, and ending with an ETP4HPC workshop on 11 May.

The PRACEdays16 programme itself included 8 keynote presentations and 18 session talks that covered a range of HPC related topics from science and industry.

PRACE presented 4 Awards:

  • The PRACEdays16 Best Poster Award was awarded to Samet Demir of Istanbul Technical University for his poster entitled "Computational design of hydrogen storage materials".
  • Niels Aage form the Technical University of Denmark received the PRACEdays16 Award for Best Industrial Presentation for his talk on "Ultra large scale structural optimisation-topology optimized wing structure".
  • Matthieu Chavent of Oxford University took home the PRACEdays16 Award for Best Scientific Presentation. His talk was entitled "Membrane Protein Crowding: filling the gap between computations and experiments".
  • The PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC was officially presented to Zoe Cournia of the Biomedical Research Foundation, Academy of Athens (BRFAA), Greece.

"PRACEdays16 has been a success throughout with more participants, more interactions, and more awards. We clearly see the need for this conference and the entire European HPC Summit Week to be developed into the signature event for HPC in science and industry in Europe", stated Alison Kennedy Chair of the PRACE Board of Directors.

PRACEdays17 will be part of the European HPC Summit Week 2017 which will be organised in Barcelona, Spain, in May 2017.

More information about the PRACEdays16 is available in the overview . The presentations of the speakers at PRACEdays16 will be uploaded soon. You can also watch the PRACEdays16 videos .
