DEISA Symposium Edinburgh, April 28 - 29, 2008

Advancing Extreme Computing in Europe

 

Venue: Our Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh, UK

Registration

Practical information

Overview

This year's annual DEISA Symposium will take place in Spring at Our Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Its purpose is to provide a forum where scientists from around the world can discuss HPC-eInfrastructures in general and for DEISA users to share their experiences and results.

The DEISA Symposium will take part over two days. The first day will feature talks from key players in the field of HPC e-Infrastructures including DEISA, and also from PRACE. The second day will see talks from prominent DEISA users, reporting on both their experience of the DEISA infrastructure and on their ground-breaking results.

The DEISA Symposium is traditionally held once a year during the Spring. This is the fourth Symposium, and previous Symposia were held in Paris, Bologna and Munich. As per tradition, the Symposium will start with lunch on the first day and end with lunch on the second day.
