DEISA Symposium 2008: 28-29th April 2008

DEISA Symposium 2008: Advancing Extreme Computing in Europe. April, 28-29, 2008, Edinburgh, UK.

The DEISA, Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications, Grid of supercomputers is unique within Europe. DEISA is a structured layer on top of the national supercomputing services which are tightly coupled by a dedicated network and supported by innovative system and grid software. Users can now run simulations which, without DEISA, would not have been feasible.

The DEISA Symposium will take part over two days. The first day will feature talks from key players in the field of HPC e-Infrastructures including DEISA, and also from PRACE. The second day will see talks from prominent DEISA users, reporting on both their experience of the DEISA infrastructure and on their ground-breaking results.

The purpose of the Symposium is to provide a forum where attendees can discuss HPC Grids and where DEISA users can share their experiences and results. The target audience is both the support teams, providing and supporting grid-enabled HPC-facilities, and scientists from academia, industry and commerce, with an interest in so-called Extreme Computing.
