Austria is part of the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (uroHPC JU) and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE). Both initiatives provide free access to European supercomputers for academic researchers and industry in ‘open’ R&D. In addition, pay-per-use access on the EuroHPC systems for industry will be provided in future.
The EuroHPC JU currently builds up a world-class supercomputing ecosystem in Europe, consisting of five petascale and three pre-exascale systems that are just about to start regular user operation. The objective is to reach exascale capabilities, i.e., 1018 Flop/s, by 2022/2024 and build ‘hybrid’ machines that blend the best of quantum and classical HPC technologies with the first state-of-the-art pilot quantum computers by 2025. In addition, the EuroHPC JU aims to widen the use of HPC infrastructures to a large number of public and private users wherever they are located in Europe and support the development of key HPC skills, education and training for European science and industry, e.g., by creating a network of national HPC Competence Centres to ease access to European HPC opportunities in different industrial sectors and deliver tailored solutions, as well as setting up the first pan-European Master of Science programme for HPC to develop HPC talents in Europe.
In order to support Austrian stakeholders in the usage of these European supercomputers, EuroCC Austria – National Competence Centre for Supercomputing, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence is organizing an information workshop about the new EuroHPC machines as well as the application processes.
This workshop will be delivered ONLINE (using Zoom). REGISTRATION is strictly NECESSARY since the details to access the online workshop will be provided to registered participants only.
