Find out what a supercomputing can offer during the Open HPC Week

The most important benefits of working on a supercomputer or High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster are faster, more accurate, and more efficient large-scale computing. The answer on how to start using it will be given during the Open HPC Week events for entrepreneurs, representatives of state and local government institutions, scientists, and university staff.

Supercomputing or HPC is used globally to perform large-scale calculations and various types of simulations much faster, providing a more efficient process than your PC. Using supercomputing, for example, for simulation before the production processes save resources as it enables the most appropriate solutions to raw materials or technological processes.

In order to inform representatives from different fields about the possibilities of a supercomputer, the HPC Competence Centre “SuperS”, in collaboration with the Riga Technical University’s (RTU) HPC Centre and the University of Latvia (LU) Institute of Numerical Modelling, organizes several informative events. We will start the informative week with a seminar for representatives of the European Digital Innovation centres (Latvian IT Cluster and Latvian Digital Accelerator), a business breakfast for SMEs, and an informative afternoon for public administration. During the World Congress of Latvian Scientists, the RTU HPC Centre, including representatives of the “SuperS” HPC Competence Centre, will present examples of HPC solutions for scientists ( 11:00 – 16:00, June 28, National Library of Latvia).

June 27, 10:30 – 12:00, a Business Breakfast will be held for SMEs. During this event, in an informal context, it will be possible to learn how working on a supercomputer or HPC cluster can help one become more competitive and save resources. On the Academic Afternoon on June 27, 15:00 – 17:00, representatives of state and local government institutions are invited to learn how using HPC resources could make working in the public sector easier. Both events will also feature a demonstration of the HPC cluster to show practical examples from the life of how work on the supercomputer is happening.

During the break between Business Breakfast and Academic Afternoon, there will be an opportunity to take a tour of the Data Center, where Latvian supercomputers are stored.

The event will take place at RTU Science and Innovation Centre, Hall “The Moon” (Kipsala Street 6A, 1st floor). Participation in the event is free of charge. To apply, please register first:

This is the third year that “Open HPC Week” is held in Latvia at the end of June. It is implemented with EuroHPC within the framework of the project “National Competence Centers EuroHPC” (EuroCC 2). The event is organized by the HPC competence center “SuperS” in cooperation with the Riga Technical University’s (RTU) HPC center and the Institute of Numerical Modeling of the University of Latvia (LU).
