Workshop Scientific Applications towards Exascale – registration opened

EoCoE in partnership with PRACE organizes a three days workshop dedicated to scientific applications towards exascale at CINES, Montpellier, France. The general topic will be HPC applications on new architectures with a specific focus on the Intel Xeon Phi Knight’s Landing processor (KNL) as the KNL based PRACE PCP machine will be installed at CINES by that time.

Registration is free but mandatory. You can register here until September 18th 2017.
