NIC Symposium 2014

The John von Neumann Institute for Computing (NIC) – a joint foundation of Forschungszentrum Jülich, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung - supports with its members' supercomputer facilities more than 150 research groups at universities and national labs working on computer simulations in various fields of science.

Numerous scientific results of high impact in many different areas of research were obtained by the scientists who used the supercomputers in Jülich for their simulations. This symposium will give an overview of the activities of the NIC and of the results obtained in the last two years by research groups supported by the NIC.

Fifteen invited lectures will cover selected topics in the following fields:

• Astrophysics
• Biophysics
• Chemistry
• Elementary Particle Physics
• Condensed Matter
• Materials Science
• Soft Matter Science
• Earth and Environmental Research
• Fluid Mechanics
• Plasma Physics
• Computer Science

These talks and an additional poster session are intended to inform a broad audience of scientists and the interested public about the research activities of the NIC and about the simulation projects that have been supported by the supercomputers JUROPA, JUGENE, and JUQUEEN in Jülich. The accompanying symposium proceedings will cover a range of topics even wider than provided by the talks.
