Michael Stephan New President of SPXXL

Dr. Michael Stephan from JSC was elected president of SPXXL, the worldwide user group for large HPC installations running IBM or Lenovo systems. Unlike other vendor-organized user groups, SPXXL is a self-organized, selfsufficient non-profit organization. Members and affiliates participate actively in SPXXL meetings and cover their own costs for participating. At the moment, SPXXL has 45 member sites. The goal of the organization is to work together with the vendors to increase the capabilities and advance the technology of large-scale, parallel technical computing hardware and software and to provide guidance to vendors on essential development and support issues for HPC at scale. JSC wishes Michael Stephan all the best for his new duty.
