NIC Symposium 2016

The 8th NIC Symposium will be held at Forschungszentrum Jülich from 11 to 12 February 2016. 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 JUROPA, JURECA and JUQUEEN supercomputers at Jülich. This symposium is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Walter Nadler, who passed away on 9 June 2015, in recognition of his competent and enthusiastic service to the John von Neumann Institute for Computing as head of the NIC office.

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, earth and environmental research, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and computer science. For the first time, the poster session will also cover activities from successful 'Scientific Big Data Analytics Expression of Interest' projects. These projects deal with very big, often heterogeneous or distributed data sets from experiments, observations and simulations.

To accompany the conference, a comprehensive proceedings volume will also be published. It will cover an even wider range of projects than represented by the talks. The detailed programme and the registration form are available at
