HPC User Forum 2018


On October 1-2, 2018 (lunch to lunch), HLRS will again host an HPC User Forum meeting that will look at HPC in Germany, Europe and the world (see agenda below). Attendance and refreshments are free but space is limited, so HLRS and Hyperion Research encourage anyone who is interested to register.

The meeting will include updates on the EuroHPC program, the European Processors initiative and the EU-supported Fortissimo initiative for small and medium-size businesses, along with talks from the three German national HPC centers. Another major topic will be HPC-enabled artificial intelligence and advanced engineering, in the automotive industry and beyond. Speakers from the U.S. will summarize talks on automated driving systems and urban sensor networks given at the September HPC User Forum held in the American automotive industry capital, Detroit, Michigan.

We look forward to seeing you at HLRS and remind you that attendance is free but you need to register.
