EuroHPC’s LUMI kick-off event in Belgium

(21-12-2020) European supercomputing, what’s in it for you?

On January, 14th 2021 the Belgian HPC community is organising the EuroHPC’s LUMI kick-off, an online event with HPC use cases and the latest EU supercomputing news.

EU is making lots of effort to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe. The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, for example, will allow the EU and participating countries to coordinate their efforts and pool their resources with the objective of deploying in Europe world-class exascale supercomputers. Belgium is also taking part in this effort, among others via its participation to the LUMI-consortium. The LUMI (Large Unified Modern Infrastructure) consortium countries are Finland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland. Bringing together their unique expertise and experience, these countries and the European Commission will acquire, host and operate the LUMI pre-exascale supercomputer in Kajaani, Finland.

This kick-off event will be THE occasion for the wide Belgian user community to learn about the LUMI consortium and the supercomputer specifications, discover several exciting use cases of the LUMI machine and get first-hand information on the newly competence centre, EuroCC. This event is relevant for scientific and industrial researchers, HPC enthusiasts and governmental officials.
