Welcome to www.hpc-ch.org, the web pages of the Swiss HPC Service Provider Community.
The goal of hpc-ch is to support and foster the knowledge exchange between providers of HPC systems at Swiss universities. With hpc-ch we will be able to:
- Know the offering and organization of other Swiss HPC providers
- Exchange best practices
- Coordinate activities
- Discuss developments in HPC
The members of hpc-ch will meet two to four times a year to discuss selected topics (Forums) during one to two days. The Forums are hosted on a regular basis by the members of hpc-ch. The focus and dates of the Topic Forums are defined by the end of a year for the next calendar year.
The web pages are hosted by the University of Zurich. CSCS will act as secretary of hpc-ch and will coordinate the activities.
hpc-ch is formed by the following two communities:
- hpc-ch Academia – Swiss universities and research organizations
- hpc-ch Industry- Swiss companies using HPC resources
Members can be Swiss institutions from academia and industry providing HPC services. Each member is represented in hpc-ch by two persons who will serve as an interface. There is no membership fee, but the members implicitly agree to actively contribute to hp-ch and to regularly host Forums.
