Wageningen University & Research will open the renewed High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster on February 14, 2019.
This new HPC will replace the previous HPC cluster to provide more computing power to enable processing and analysis of more data. A HPC is an indispensable tool which gives researchers to opportunity to explore data and models in a parallel and quicker way. The HPC can be used for a variety of research applications within the domain of the life sciences and living environment. It can be used for bioinformatics, modelling, simulations, analysis and visualisation of data.
You are invited to this festive event on February 14, where the opportunities and technical aspects of the new HPC will be highlighted. From the point of view of research, education, and training, hands-on experiences from researchers will be shared. And the new name will be revealed. Drinks will conclude the event, where there will be ample opportunity to meet fellow researchers and HPC experts.
Registration for the event will be appreciated.
