Austrian HPC Meeting 2016 – AHPC16 | February 22–24, 2016 | Grundlsee (Austria)


The Austrian HPC Meeting 2016 – AHPC16 was held February 22–24, 2016, at Seeblickhotel-GrundlseeLocated at Grundlsee (Styria, Austria) it lies in the heart of Ausseerland, surrounded by splendid mountains and marvelous lakes. 


AHPC16 was a meeting on all aspects of scientific computing featuring keynote lectures and contributed presentations as well as a tutorial on parallel file I/O.


Jointly organized by the  VSC (Vienna Scientific Cluster) and ACSC (Austrian Center for Scientific Computing) it aimed at bringing together scientists and technicians with a background and interest in supercomputing to discuss strategic issues for the future development of HPC in Austria. In this context a special focus was the planning and design of the next generation of the Vienna Scientific Cluster – VSC-4. AHPC16 intended to foster new insights and collaborations for a sustainable and flourishing HPC development in Austria.


Thank you for joining us at Grundlsee and contributing to AHPC16 !!!
