On Monday, March 20 the scientific transmission TGR Leonardo was about Cineca and the future Italian data center of ECMWF.
Cineca and the foundation ParCo Conferences organize at Bologna from 12 September to 15 September 2017 the International Conference on Parallel Computing. Since their inception in 1983 the ParCo conferences stimulated the development and application of parallel computers on a world-wide scale. Deadline extended: 3 April 2017
You are invited to participate at an event on Deep Learning (in Italian) to be held on 12 April 2017 in Bologna. This event is organized by E4 Computer Engineering, NVIDIA, Università di Bologna, with the collaboration of IBM. The event is free, but places are limited.
From 16 to 18 May 2017, PRACE will organise the fourth edition of its Scientific and Industrial Conference – PRACEdays17 – under the motto "HPC for Innovation: when Science meets Industry" in Barcelona, Spain.
The Italian proposal is considered the best from the point of view of the requirements and the overall interests of ECMWF. Council mandated Director-General Florence Rabier to prepare a high-level agreement with the Italian Government, for approval by Council at its next session. The Italian proposal would see the future ECMWF data centre located in Bologna (Italy).
As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2017), "The 4th International Symposium on Big Data Principles, Architectures & Applications" will be held on July 17 – 21, 2017 in Genoa, Italy. Paper Submission Deadline: April 01, 2017
Transnational Access Programme for a Pan-European Network of HPC Research Infrastructures and Laboratories for scientific computing (HPC-Europa3) is the new 4-years project funded by EC. HPC-Europa3 aims at maintaining the persistency of a high quality service of transnational access to the most advanced HPC infrastructures available in Europe for the European research science community.
Will Bologna be the new headquarters of the European Weather Center? Pending the imminent verdict, scheduled for the beginning of February, Cineca along with the Emilia-Romagna Region, Arpae, Aster, FBM, and with the support of the Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea, produced a video that tells the tradition, the expertise and excellence of the territory, in support of the nomination.
Both activities are expense-paid programmes and will allow participants to travel and stay at a hosting location and learn about HPC: 1. The 2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences 2. The PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 programm
