Call for presentations and partecipants: Forum on OS for HPC and Installation Methods

Dear members and guests of the hpc-ch community,

We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming hpc-ch forum on

Operating Systems for HPC and Installation Methods

to be held on Thursday, May 20, 2010 from 10:00 until 17:00, kindly hosted by EPF Lausanne.

The hpc-ch meeting will already start on Wednesday, May 19th with a common dinner starting at 19:00 at the Café de Grancy in Lausanne.

The hpc-ch delegation will be welcomed at EPF Lausanne by Jean-Claude Berney and Didier Rey . The keynote presentations will be given by Jacques Menu on Installation of central services clusters and by Maxime Augier (both EPF Lausanne) on Installation of a cluster of PS3s. For the pleasure of our geek members, both presentations have been announced to be very technical.

Vittoria Rezzonico organized for us a very appealing agenda, so we will have the chance to have site visits of the central services data center, of the FSB data center and of the I+C computing infrastructures with its PlayStations. So do not forget to take with you your camera!
