Thursday, December 1, 11:00 am, Cineca organizes a meeting to present Summer of HPC, the transnational mobility program promoted by PRACE.
Every year HPCwire selects the best and the brightest developments that happened in HPC over the last 12 months. This year, Cineca with Zeco, Enginsoft and Fortissimo named winner of HPCwire 2016 Editors Choice award in the "Best Use of HPC Application in the Energy Industry".
Also this year we'll be present at Supercomputing 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah, at booth #4030. Meet our HPC experts for an overview of our activities and for talking about new opportunities of collaboration and services. Visit us November 14 to 17 and we'll tell you about the perspectives of development of HPC in Cineca.
The Italian supercomputer MARCONI, Intel Xeon Phi, available to the Italian and European scientific community by ISCRA and PRACE, is now number 12 in the November 2016 Top500 list. Three Cineca systems are ranked in the list.
CINECA, is pleased to announce that three contractors were awarded in the third and final phase of PRACE's Pre-commercial Procurement (PCP).
RDA, the Research Data Alliance, in collaboration with the universities of Turin, Milan, Bologna, Trento and Parma and supported by CNR, AISA and OpenAIRE organizes a two-day workshop about sharing, reuse, and reproducibility of research data on some selected scientific fields - and related research infrastructures - of strategic relevance in Europe.
16 major European research organisations, data and computing centres signed an agreement to sustain the EUDAT – pan European collaborative data infrastructure for the next 10 years. The organisations commit to develop, maintain and deploy pan-European research data services and to promote harmonization of research data management practices across centres.
Cineca collaborates in the project LINCOLN by implementing an HPC platform for the design of boats and ships for rescue at sea.
The 14th Call for Proposal for PRACE Project Access is now open until 21 November 2016, 10:00 CET. It is now possible to submit a proposal for PRACE under the defined guidelines, and apply for one of the supercomputers of the affiliated european HPC centers, including our MARCONI. Proposals can be based on a 12-months schedule, or, for Multi-year Projects, on a 24- or 36-months schedule.
The EU Researchers' Night invites you to meet the heroes of science; that is to say, the researchers from different disciplines whose fascinating work can change our lives. With family, friends, your school or on your own, you will become a scientist for a day, participate in science activities and most of all have fun! Cineca, this year, take part at the events in Rome (Frascati) and Bologna.
