Despite having had only modest plans for online training courses in 2020, COVID-19 demanded that GCS centres’ training staffs evolve to ensure the organization delivered on one of its core missions—training scientists to make the best use of HPC resources.

The new training center of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) opened on March 7. The 2,003 sqm complex will now provide excellent facilities for the various types of HPC and IT trainings offered by HLRS.

The workshop provides selected application teams the opportunity to scale their codes up to 1.8 million hardware threads via exclusive access to the entire Blue Gene/Q at JSC.

GCS will act as official sponsor of this event, the Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry (STC2016), which will take place at the campus of the Ruhr Universität Bochum (RUB) from September 26 - 29, 2016.
