HPC centre infrastructures

 

1st to 3rd April 2014 – Bouray-sur-Juine, France

Très Grand Centre de Calcul, Domaine de Frémigny, Très Grand Centre de Calcul - CEA Bruyères-le-Châtel - 2014

In its 5th edition, the highly successful series of European Workshops on HPC Infrastructures returned to France, near CEA in Essonne – Paris region, on April 1st to 3rd, 2014. The aim of this series of workshops is to bring together specialists for HPC centre design and operation to discuss the latest trends and technologies for infrastructure of supercomputing centres.  Given that the requirements for HPC centres differ significantly from traditional data centres this workshop provides a unique forum to exchange with other sites that have similar requirements and challenges. 
This new event focused again on a number of interesting updates from various HPC sites around Europe and beyond, Energy Efficient Computing, Infrastructure Technologies as well as some considerations about future developments in HPC.

The workshop gathered more than 60 participants from computing centres (mostly from Europe but from the USA and Australia as well), supercomputer vendors and other companies. Two days of plenary sessions were followed by an internal PRACE HPC infrastructure session on April 3rd.
The event took place at Domaine de Fremigny, situated in Essonne, near CEA Bruyères-le-Châtel – 40 km south of Paris. 

This event was sponsored by CEA, CSCS, GCS and PRACE :
