Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching near Munich to host 59th International HPC User Forum

22 Sep 2015 Garching - The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), member of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), will serve as host venue for the 59th International HPC User Forum on October 15 and 16, 2015. The forum, which aims at promoting the health of the global High Performance Computing (HPC) industry and addresses issues of common concern to users, is scheduled to bring together representatives of many different fields in HPC, including users, vendors, industry analysts, and others. Anyone with an interest in compute- or data-intensive high performance computing is heartily invited to join the meeting at the LRZ facilities in Garching near Munich in Germany.

Amongst the speakers of the two-day event are the Directors of the three GCS centres Professor Arndt Bode of the LRZ, Professor Michael M. Resch of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), and the GCS Chairman of the Board, Professor Thomas Lippert of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC). Their presentations will provide updates with regards to the use of the three centres' petascale HPC systems in science and research, and they will share their experience in topics such as extreme scaling and/or the enduring subject of energy efficiency in HPC centres.

The HPC User Forum is a service initiated by the International Data Corporation (IDC) in close partnership with users and vendors in the technical HPC industry. Like the HPC User Forum which takes place twice a year in the United States, the International version of the event provides representatives of the HPC community outside the US a platform to meet and share their experience within the circle of HPC experts.

The complete agenda can be found at https://hpcuserforum.com/downloads/munich-agenda.pdf .

Participation in the HPC User Forum is free of charge. Registration is required, though, for organisational reasons at https://hpcuserforum.com/register-international2.html .
