NIC Symposium 2012
The 6th NIC Symposium will be held at Forschungszentrum Jülich from 7 to 8 February 2012. The talks will inform a broad audience of scientists and interested members of the public about the activities and results obtained in the last two years by research projects supported through the John von Neumann Institute for Computing (NIC) on the supercomputers JUROPA and JUGENE at Jülich. Invited talks and a poster session will cover topics in the
fields of astrophysics, biophysics, chemistry, elementary particle physics, condensed matter, materials science, soft matter science, environmental research, hydrodynamics and turbulence, plasma physics, and computer science. To accompany the conference, a comprehensive proceedings volume will also be published and copies made available to the participants. It will cover an even wider range of projects than given by the talks.
This symposium will also mark the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum (HLRZ), which in 1998 became NIC. The detailed programme and the registration form are available at:
