ISC13 dedicated a special session to probe the thinking behind Europe’s Human Brain Project. We asked Prof. Felix Schürmann of EPFL to tell us about the usage of HPC resources in the Human Brain project and to tell us what this project means to HPC in Switzerland.
On Wednesday, June 19, 2013 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM join us at ISC13 for the BoF session 22 on High Performance Communications for High Performance Computing The BoF will be introduced and moderated by Michele De Lorenzi (CSCS), Angela Detjen (CSCS), Helen Gardiner (Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative), Nages Sieslack (Prometeus), and Jack Wells […]
The next edition of ISC13 (Leipzig, June 16–20, 2013) is approaching fast. Encouraged by the positive feedback from visitors over the last few years (and from our own team at the booth), we’ll again host our own booth at this year’s conference. This year, hpc-ch will have a slightly larger booth and a brand new […]
hpc-ch is a community linking all HPC service providers in Switzerland. In our four years of existence, we were able to create a vibrant community with a very intense knowledge transfer and a lot of interpersonal contacts. In the last months we were able to extend our community from academia to industry with representatives of […]
The Human Brain Project, recently awarded a 10 year grant by the EU Commission, will pull together all our existing knowledge about the human brain and to reconstruct the brain, piece by piece, in supercomputer-based models and simulations. In a special session at the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference, scientists working on the Human Brain Project […]
