Europe's DEISA has opened a call for Expressions of Interest for collaborations and pan-European HPC support within the DEISA Virtual Community Support Initiative
GARCHING, Germany, Dec. 11 -- Within the current EU FP7 DEISA2 project, the well-known DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative (DECI) for single project support is tasked with starting the support for Virtual Communities, in particular organised scientific communities and suitable EU FP7 projects from computational science.
This extended initiative of DEISA2 will benefit from and build on the experiences of the scientific Joint Research Activities of DEISA1 (FP6), where selected computing needs of various scientific communities and a pilot industry partner were addressed.
Now DEISA has started a call for expressions of interest from Virtual Communities from all science areas for collaborative actions and support through the new DEISA Virtual Community Support Initiative in 2009 (see www.deisa.eu/science/communities/call). Communities and projects can benefit from access to some of the most powerful computing facilities in Europe and HPC consulting from experts based at the participating national HPC centres.
Science communities / EU FP7 projects with HPC needs from the following science areas are especially encouraged to contact DEISA: Climate/Earth System Research, Astrophysics/Cosmology, Life Sciences, and Materials Sciences. Support for the European Fusion Community and an EU Life Science project has already started.
Communities with pan-European HPC needs who are interested in establishing a collaboration with DEISA and asking for support through the DEISA infrastructure and its services are invited to send an "Expression of Interest." The template is available for download from the DEISA Web page. In case of questions, contact Hermann Lederer (email@example.com) from DEISA External Relations.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
