DEISA Symposium Edinburgh, held on April 28 - 29, 2008
Advancing Extreme Computing in Europe
This year's annual DEISA Symposium took place in Spring at Our Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Its purpose was 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 took part over two days. The first day featured talks from key players in the field of HPC e-Infrastructures including DEISA, and also from PRACE. The second day saw 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 was the fourth Symposium, and previous Symposia were held in Paris, Bologna and Munich.
