In May 2012 CSCS organized a course about “Using the next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) for Large Scale Data Analytics”. The next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) is a massively multithreaded, high performance computer system built for data analytics. The system supports a semantic database capable of processing SPARQL queries against a RDF triple store. The system can […]
The Faculty of Science of the University of Basel, Switzerland, invites outstanding scientists to apply for an Assistant Professorship (Tenure-Track) in High Performance Computing beginning in spring 2014. The University of Basel is promoting the growing area of computational science. The faculty of science started in 2002 to offer a full Bachelor and Master program […]
