Registration opens for HPC User Forums at CSCS and EPCC


26 Aug 2019 Minneapolis - The HPC User Forum Steering Committee and Hyperion Research invite interested HPC community members to reserve a seat at one or both HPC User Forum meetings that will take place during the same week at CSCS - the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, Lugano - and EPCC/University of Edinburgh in October.

The meetings will begin and end at midday, to make same-day travel easier. Registration and food/refreshments are free, but space is strictly limited. Seats will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

To reserve a seat and participate in the meetings, you can register at the HPC User Forum website. The preliminary agendas are shown below and updates will appear on the same website.
