PC2 User Meeting 2019

The next PC2 User Meeting will be held on December 12, 2019 and we cordially invite all interested persons to join the meeting.

The meeting consists of two parts: on the one hand a scientific part, where users of PC2 systems can present their work and get into contact with other users. On the other hand, the technical part will present the hardware and software environment of the HPC systems available at PC2. This information will cover an update on the compute-time application process and an overview over recent new features and services at PC2

Further, all participants are invited to present their research in a poster session and to discuss with fellow researches and members of the PC2 management and advisory boards.
