PRACEdays15: HPC brings industry and academia together


9 Jun 2015 Dublin - PRACEdays15, which ran from 26 to 28 May, 2015 in Dublin, Ireland, marked another successful edition of the annual PRACE Scientific and Industrial Conference. The Irish Centre for High End Computing hosted the conference and satellite events locally and, with this year's theme being "Enable Science Foster Industry", attracted close to 200 experts from academia and industry. The two satellite events focusing on Women in HPC and Exascale European projects proved very popular on 25 and 26 May and the EESI2 Project held its final conference on 28 and 29 May to round off the week. The PRACE User Forum invited all participants to an Open Session on Wednesday afternoon.

Highlights of the week included the keynote sessions given by well-known academic and industrial researchers from Europe and Asia, including the keynote speech by Masahiro Seki, President of the Research Organisation for Information Science and Technology (RIST), Japan. The European Commission added their vision to the programme with a presentation entitled "Implementing the European Strategy on High Performance Computing". There were six heavily subscribed parallel streams across various scientific and industrial themes, which proved very successful. The final panel discussion on 28 May entitled "Science and Industry: Partners for Innovation", was moderated by Tom Wilkie ofScientific Computing Worldand brought together high level representatives from the European Commission, industry and academia. The full programme can be found at http://www.prace-ri.eu/pracedays15 .

Finally, the PRACEdays15 Award for Best Poster was presented to Panchatcharam Mariappan for his poster entitled "GPU accelerated finite element method for radio frequency ablated cancer treatment". All posters can be found at http://www.prace-ri.eu/pracedays15-posters and the presentations at http://www.prace-ri.eu/pracedays15-presentations .

PRACEdays16 will take place in Prague, Czech Republic from 10 to 12 May 2016. More information will be published on www.prace-ri.eu/pracedays16 .
