On 30 March 2016, the Human Brain Project is releasing the first components, services and tools of its 6 ICT Platforms to the scientific community (Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, High Performance Analytics and Computing, Medical Informatics, Neuromorphic Computing, Neurorobotics). The event will be web-streamed live at 09:30 and 14:00
The ANTAREX research project, coordinated by Cristina Silvano from Politecnico di Milano, wins a 3 million euro grant in the H2020 Future and Emerging Technologies programme on High Performance Computing. The project involves leading academic and industrial partners as well as CINECA.
The 13th Call for Proposal for Project Access will be open from today until 1 April 2016, 17:00 CET. Proposals can be based on a 12-months schedule, or, for Multi-year Projects, on a 24- or 36-months schedule. The 13th Call will offer resources on Marconi (new CINECA HPC system) and MareNostrum (BSC). Allocation start date of awarded proposals: 1 September 2016
A series of partnership agreement between INFN and CINECA are in place to enhance the research in computational Physics in Italy. One of this has completed a series of simulations of the merger of Neutron Stars. The detection of the gravitational waves emitted will open new frontiers in the understanding of the physics of nuclear matter in the extreme conditions that are present in Neutron stars.
Fortissimo Open Call informative session: On 2 March You can get more details and hints on how to write a proposal.
This call for proposals targets the augmentation of the application experiments currently being carried out within Fortissimo 2 and Fortissimo focusing on modelling and simulation of coupled phenomena and high-performance data analytics and in all cases targeting benefits for engineering and manufacturing SMEs and mid-caps. Submission Deadline: 18th May, 2016
From May 10-12 2016, PRACE will organise the third edition of its Scientific and Industrial Conference – PRACEdays16 – under the motto HPC for Innovation: when Science meets Industry in Prague, Czech Republic. The conference will bring together experts from academia and industry who will present their advancements in HPC-supported science and engineering. Registration is open until 29 April
We regularly published updated statistics about Cineca Hardware (Clusters and Storage) Utilization, Cineca Computing Users and Publications supported by Cineca and by PRACE
On Thursday, February 11 the scientific transmission Memex was about Cineca and in particular about its supercomputing activities.
The EuHIT School on Turbulence provides young researchers an opportunity for attending high quality lectures on fluid dynamics experimental techniques, numerical methods in fluid dynamics and the theory of turbulence. This event is free of charge, including basic accommodation. Limited number of travel grants will be awarded (deadline for application is 1.03.2016).
