The Open HPC Week 2023 has ended successfully
The Open HPC week has ended successfully with a unique supercomputer demonstration and participation in the V World Congress of Latvian Scientists. This was already the third year EuroCC Latvia organized an Open HPC Week.
Supercomputing or High-Performance Computing (HPC) Competence Centre in Latvia organized four main events during the Open HPC Week to inform different target groups about the benefits of using a supercomputer, as well as providing some real-life examples, such as supercomputers helping to increase energy efficiency, predict erosion from rivers and seas, model floods, etc. Participants also had an opportunity to see the Data Center, where Latvian supercomputers are stored.
Here you can also find the image gallery from the events.
Informative seminar for European Digital Innovation Hubs in Latvia
On June 21, HPC Competence Centre in Latvia “SuperS” informed representatives from EDIH about supercomputers or HPC clusters and infrastructure.
In order to provide support for digital transformation-focused organizations more effectively, experts from EDIH were given presentations with the main principles and wide range of supercomputer applications, such as how to optimize internal processes in businesses, introduce new systems or develop new products by using an HPC.
Business Breakfast for SMEs
On June 27, participants heard presentations about increasing competitiveness of businesses in the domestic and international markets, reducing costs and increase efficiency. Ltd “CastPrint” told their success story. In addition to this, participants were informed about the capabilities of a supercomputer. At the end of the Breakfast, participants were given a chance to see one small node of the HPC cluster in action.
An afternoon for public administration and academia
On June 27, anyone could learn about possible benefits of using an HPC can give to the public sector, when should a supercomputer be considered, and how start using it.
HPC demonstrations in the V World Congress of Latvian Scientists
During the V World Congress of Latvian Scientists, Riga Technical University’s HPC Centre and representatives from the HPC Competence Centre “SuperS”, presented examples of the use of HPC – demo-cases developed within the EuroCC project.
Participants had a chance to speak to some of the demo-case experts and find out more about technical details in using the HPC for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling, for collect microwaves in the air for use in power generation and for medicinal fixator modeling.
