The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), one of the three centres that make up the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), invites the international scientific community to participate in its biannual SuperMUC-NG Status and Results Workshop. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop will—for the first time in its history—be held as an online-only event from June 8 –10, 2021. The event brings together researchers representing a variety of scientific disciplines in order to present the results of their simulation projects that leveraged LRZ’s high-performance computing (HPC) resources—SuperMUC Phase 1, SuperMUC Phase 2, and SuperMUC-NG—in their pursuit of solving some of humanity’s most demanding scientific challenges.
LRZ hosts the workshop every other year in order to showcase the work done on its current-generation leadership-class computing system. Additionally, the centre’s staff uses the event to have more detailed knowledge and idea exchange with its users. This approach serves as a foundational piece in LRZ’s efforts to ensure the continuation of the highest quality of the HPC services available at the centre. The workshop will consist of talks from invited speakers who will introduce their individual projects (10-20 minute each plus discussion/Q&A) as well as presentations given by HPC experts from LRZ and GCS on future HPC strategies and technology plans.
”We are really looking forward to the exchange of knowledge and the discussions among and with our users and are more than happy that we can make this happen despite the on-going difficult situation,” says Prof. Dr. Dieter Kranzlmüller, Director of the LRZ and host of the workshop.
Due to the event taking place virtually, travel to the LRZ campus is not required. Because of its online format, interested parties have the option to pick and choose agenda items that match their specific interests best to attend these sections of the workshop only. “We welcome researchers and HPC experts from all around the globe to learn how our world-class HPC infrastructure and services support science and research in manifold ways, and more importantly to learn from each other,” concludes Kranzlmüller.
Workshop Agenda and Participation
The SuperMUC-NG status and results workshop is free of charge and open to the entire HPC community. However, registration is required, as available seats are limited. The full workshop agenda as well as the link to get registered is available at https://www.hpc-workshop.lrz.de/ Selected talks will also be published on LRZ’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/LeibnizRechenzentrum).
