National Competence Centre for HPC at SlovakiaTech Forum Expo

From 14th to 15th September 2021 the 3rd edition of the largest technological conference in Slovakia and the international innovation and technology trade fair SLOVAKIATECH FORUM-EXPO 2021 took place in the Kulturpark in Košice.

The aim of the event was a meeting of Slovak and foreign experts in the field of innovation, industry and industrial technologies, energy, transport and logistics, environment and education, as well as a presentation of scientific and innovative potential of Slovak technology companies.

The National Competence Centre for High-Performance Computing was also present at the International Innovation and Technology Fair SlovakiaTech Forum - EXPO 2021. At the exhibition, we introduced the participants to NCC for HPC, explaining what a supercomputer or high-performance computing is. We also introduced our services, which include the provision of consultations, mediation of partnerships, free IT courses and the provision of machine time. Through the questionnaire, we found out how Slovakia is doing with high-performance computing, what companies and institutions in Slovakia have experience with it, where they see obstacles and in which areas they need consultations.  

The National Competence Centre for High-Performance Computing was established thanks to the European project EuroCC which is implemented in Slovakia by the Center for Joint Activities of the Slovak Academy of Sciences.

Can we exploit the HPC possibilities in basic research effectively? 14 Oct - On October 12, 2021 the second lecture of our „Supercomputing in science“ series took place on the premises of the Computational centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Pavel Neogrády from the Department of physical and theoretical chemistry of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, CU talked about highly accurate computational methods in the field of theoretical chemistry and about their complexity and numerical intricacies.
A Centre of Excellence in HPC: Performance Optimisation and Productivity 5 Oct - Once again, we bring you to the attention of the PoP service: (Performance Optimisation and Productivity; A Centre of Excellence in HPC) One of the partners of PoP CoE is also the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center at VŠB - Technical University in Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
Current trends and visions in HPC in Slovakia 1 Oct - On September 29, we started a series of lectures "Supercomputing in Science" in the Aula of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Popularization-educational lectures are a joint activity of the Computer Museum and the National Competence Center for HPCNCC, as the primary contact point for HPC in Slovakia, covers, among other things, educational and dissemination activities in this area.
