Kick off meeting of Summer of HPC students

Kick off meeting of Summer of HPC students

This week 24 young students meet in the historical town of Edinburgh. We are coming from different countries all over Europe in order to discuss how we could solve open problems which affect the mankind since long time. This problems include the origin of the universe, climate changes and how the human brain works…

In the past these problems have been tackled separately in the fields of mathematics, physics, biology and astronomy. Recently technical developments in supercomputers and high performance computing techniques have provided novel tools to deal with these problems.

This is the first day of the first Summer of HPC. After this first training week in Edinburgh, we are going to work in the most important HPC centers in Europe. It is time to spread the word about how high performance computing will help us in the future. Follow this blog to learn more and for updates!
