Cineca and the foundation ParCo Conferences organize at Bologna from 12 September to 15 September 2017 the International Conference on Parallel Computing. ParCo2017 is a continuation of the international conference on parallel computing and HPC started in 1983. Since their inception the ParCo conferences stimulated the development and application of parallel computers on a world-wide scale.
The 13th call has been completed. CINECA offered 665 million compute core hours on new Tier-0 system Marconi, composed of 2 partitions, one based on Intel Broadwell processors and one based on Intel KNL many-core processors. The 30 awarded projects are led by principal investigators from 9 different European countries. Next 14th PRACE call for Project Access will open on 5th October.
An all-Italian partnership between ENEA and CINECA has been selected by EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the development of fusion energy, to deliver high-performance computing and data storage to support European research on fusion.
CINECA invites all interested scientists, whose projects fit the criteria of the PRACE call, to submit their projects. Preparatory access is intended for testing and developing codes in order to prepare applications for PRACE Tier-0 project access. Preparatory Access Type C includes code development with support from PRACE experts. The next cut-off date is September 15th, 2016.
Researchers of the Universities and Research Centers based in Lombardy are invited to submit scientific projects in order to receive High Performance Resources and specialized support. The proposals are eligible from any scientific discipline. Deadline: 30th September 2016
