First JARA-HPC Symposium

The Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA) will host its first JARA-HPC Symposium on 4-5 October 2016 in Aachen. Scientists from JARA-HPC combine a knowledge of massively parallel computing on supercomputers with the respective expertise from different research fields.

This symposium is jointly organized by members of simulation labs and cross-sectional groups from JARA-HPC at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre of Forschungszentrum Jülich and the IT Center of RWTH Aachen University. It aims at providing a platform for discussions on various aspects of the development of HPC applications. Participants will have the opportunity for an in-depth exchange with colleagues from different research fields who also make use of HPC systems in their scientific work. Focusing on the merits of interdisciplinarity, the symposium specifically addresses visualization methods and performance optimization in connection with application development in engineering and materials science as well as neuroscience.

Scientists are encouraged to submit extended abstracts on related topics by 27 June 2016. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to give a presentation at the JARA-HPC Symposium and will have the chance to extend their initial submission into a full paper of 8 to 10 pages LNCS style to be published in the LNCS Symposium proceedings after the symposium. Details on the submission format and further information about the symposium are published on the symposium website at
