The secret of supercomputers was unlocked at the Science Fair in Prague!

The most significant science popularisation event in the Czech Republic, the Science Fair, has already passed. This year's seventh edition, traditionally held at the PVO EXPO Praha exhibition centre in Letňany in Prague (8th - 10th June), broke not only records in the number of visitors. Indeed, we couldn't miss out on it.

National Competence Centre in HPC part of ISC 2023

Europe's most important event in high-performance computing, ISC 2023, is already over. The National Competence Centre in HPC (NCC) presented its achievements so far, including successful collaborations with companies and other stakeholders in the field, and introduced the conference participants to current opportunities for collaboration with industry, public administration, and academia.

The future of National Competence Centres lies in intensive cooperation with the industry

Lectures, panel discussions, and project presentations. Over five hundred representatives from the field of HPC attended the EuroHPC Summit in Göteborg, Sweden (20-23 March). On the last day of the event, a workshop of Centres of Excellence and National Competence Centres (NCCs) was held, where the coordinator of the Czech NCC, Tomáš Karásek from IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center, was also present.

Meet Andreas Lintermann from the CoE Raise

The HPCSE 2022 conference brought together experts from HPC and related scientific disciplines. We interviewed one of them –⁠ Andreas Lintermann from the supercomputing centre in Jülich, Germany who coordinates the European Centre of Excellence for Exascale Computing "Research on AI – and Simulation-Based Engineering at Exascale" (CoE RAISE). We are bringing you the interview with him in the following lines and we are looking forward to future collaboration.

ISC High Performance 2022 exceeded all expectations

ISC High Performance is considered the world’s oldest and Europe’s most significant event regarding high performance computing (HPC), machine learning and high-performance data analytics. After two years of online presence, the conference offered an opportunity for scientists, supercomputing centres, companies, and HPC enthusiasts to meet again.

FF4EuroHPC Open Call 2

This call for proposals targets the highest quality application projects involving innovative, agile SMEs, supported by the necessary players in the value chain for effective completion of the experiment workplan. Proposals are sought that address business challenges from European SMEs from varied application domains, but preference being given to engineering and manufacturing, or sectors able to demonstrate fast economic growth or particular economic impact for Europe.

National Competence Center Introduction

The National Competence Center (NCC) is the reference and single point of contact and coordination on a national level for high-performance computing (HPC) and data analysis (HPDA). In the Czech Republic, the National Competence Center in HPC is represented by IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava. The National Competence Center was established under the auspices of the EuroCC project and is funded by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.

IT4Innovations becomes the National Competence Center in HPC

IT4Innovations has joined the EuroCC project, the objective of which is to establish the National Competence Center in high-performance computing (HPC) and implement supporting activities in this field focused on industry, public administration, and academia. The project is aimed not only at sharing knowledge and expertise in HPC across Europe but also to reinforce the technological independence and competitiveness of the EU.
