NATIONAL COMPETENCE CENTER
FOR HPC

What is
HPC?

High performance computing (HPC) is the use of high-performance computing technologies (supercomputers and parallel programs) to solve complex numerical problems. Deployment of HPC is important in modern science as well as in industry.

Competence
Center

National competence center's mission is to promote the use of HPC in science and industry and to increase the competences of its users. If you are interested in more information, training or cooperation do not hesitate to contact us.

Services
and training

The National Competence Center provides services and courses in the field of HPC. All our services and courses are free of charge. Collaborate with us, use our computing resources, learn to code, find out how to optimize parallel code sand use HPC software efficiently.

News
and Information

We regularly publish updates on the activities of the competence center, reports on successful deployment of HPC, cooperation with academia and private sector, and organized events. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social networks!

Slovakia has joined a European network of 33 competence centers. The aim of the EuroCC portal and CASTIEL is to bridge the existing HPC skill gaps while promoting cooperation and the implementation of best practices across Europe. European countries are currently taking part in the initiative and pooling their resources with the EU and private partners to enable the EU to become a world leader in supercomputing.

EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Benchmark Access 2024 14 Feb - The purpose of theEuroHPC JU Benchmark Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to test or benchmark their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access.
EuroHPC JU Call for Proposals for Development Access 2024 14 Feb - The purpose of the EuroHPC JU Development Access calls is to support researchers and HPC application developers by giving them the opportunity to develop, test and optimise their applications on the upcoming/available EuroHPC Pre-exascale and/or Petascale system prior to applying for an Extreme Scale and/or Regular Access. The EuroHPC Development call is designed for projects focusing on code and algorithm development and optimisation. As well as development of AI application methods.
International Day of Women and Girls in Science 11 Feb - The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated annually on February 11th, was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. This day reminds us that women and girls play a crucial role in science and technology and that their support in this area needs to be further enhanced. The contribution of women in science is invaluable, from basic research to the development of technologies. Women, such as Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin, and many others, have had a fundamental impact on our understanding of the world.
