PRACE Spring school: Modelling Materials using HPC and AI/ML
This year the PRACE Spring school will be organized by the Centre of Operations, Slovak Academy of Sciences and will cover the topic of modelling materials using HPC and AI/ML tools and techniques. The workshop will be held on June 15 – 18, 2021 as an online/hybrid event. Locally based participants may attend the seasonal school in person, if the pandemic situation and valid restrictions permit it.
We aim to deliver comprehensive information on the topic, from theoretical background, parallel algorithms implementation to effective deployment of applications and programs on the HPC environment.
The PRACE Spring school will also fucus on utilizing the AI/ML tools that are being progressively applied to real chemical problems, such as discovery of new chemical compounds and materials with specific properties.
The program comprises interesting lectures as well as practical hands-on sessions. Basic knowledge and background in theoretical chemistry or physics is a prerequisite.
The HERE. , which is free of charge, is now OPEN until June 7, 2021 or until our capacities are full.
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.
