PRACE Hosts First Scientific Conference
December 27, 2008 Leave a comment
The first PRACE Scientific Conference was held on Nov. 26, 2008, in Lyon in conjunction with ICT 2008, the largest research event for information and communication technologies in Europe. Over 40 participants from 16 countries attended the sessions aimed at facilitating discussion and collaboration between researchers, technical experts, and policy makers, in furthering PRACE’s goal of establishing an HPC infrastructure in Europe. By organising the workshop during ICT 2008, PRACE was able to connect closely with other European ICT projects, such as DEISA and EGEE, enhance collaboration and identify areas of overlapping effort. The second scientific conference is being organized in conjugation with the DEISA Symposium, and will be held in Amsterdam in May 2009.
