Supercomputing in science - starting soon!

Join us to talk about supercomputing in science in an informal atmosphere with coffee and refreshments! We have prepared a series of interesting lectures on high-performance computing – there is no registration fee, but the registration is required.

National Competence Center for HPC  organizes a series of lectures on why scientists need supercomputers and high-performance computing. This is a joint activity of the NCC and the Computer museum of the Centre of Operations, SAS.

Every user realizes that the use of HPC in various disciplines is a multidisciplinary issue. Not only is it necessary to have expertise in a specific scientific field, but further knowledge of modeling and simulation methods, programming basics, operating systems and computer architecture is required. The first lectures will therefore cover mostly HPC basics, preparing the participants for later presentations, in which experts from the SAS and the Slovak universities will speak in more detail about the use of HPC in various scientific disciplines. Our goal is to compensate to some extent what is often missing in the curricula of the universities and to try to deliver comprehensive information in the context of the global development.

The lectures are suitable for students, but also for people who want to learn more about HPC technologies, their development and utilization in science. Open, informal discussions with the invited speakers will be an important part of the events taking place in the SAS lecture hall within the Patrónka area.  It will also be possible to watch the lectures online via YouTube. Attendance is free, but all hygiene measures and rules in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic have to be observed. For in-person attendance it is also necessary to register on the website http://itkurzy.sav.sk/prednasky.

We are very pleased that our invitation was accepted by interesting speakers and we are looking forward to inspiring lectures and stimulating discussions in a relaxed atmosphere with coffee and refreshments!

Operation systems in multiprocessor clusters 13 Nov - 10. novembra 2021 sa uskutočnila už štvrtá prednáška série Superpočítanie vo vede. Tentokrát sme privítali Dr. Dušana Bernáta z Fakulty matematiky, fyziky a informatiky Univerzity Komenského so zaujímavou prednáškou na tému Operačné systémy v multiprocesorových klastroch.
NCC Slovakia at the ITAPA 2021 congress 9 Nov - On November 9th, 2021 the second day of the Itapa congress took place featuring several contributions focused on high-performance computing as an important tool for enabling innovations, ensuring the competitiveness of economies as well as for supporting security and scientific research. The Slovak National Competence Centre for HPC in collaboration with the congress organizers invited Mr. Gustav Kalbe as one of the keynote speakers. As a representative of the EuroHPC JU, he covered this topic from the global and European point of view.
Development of technology and computer architecture – from 1-processor serial computers to supercomputers 27 Oct - On October 26, 2021 the third lecture of our „Supercomputing in science“ series took place on the premises of the Computational centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Doc. Šperka, who is also responsible for the Computer museum, showed development of computer architectures and it’s components, such as CPU, GPU and RAM.
