Apropos of Lemaître...

Present and future of high-performance computing

Wednesday November 15th 2006

Auditorium Barb 91


The High-Performance Computing and Mass Storage Institute of the UCL has recently acquired a new computing system of about 300 processors, with high-speed connection, nicknamed "Lemaitre" (in honour of the well-known scientist, father of the "Big Bang", who was the first to introduce a digital scientific computer in the UCL, in 1958).
At this occasion, we are organizing the present half-day event...

Conclusion /drink/posters

A poster presentation is organized. All posters related to high-performance computing are welcome. The space for each poster will be limited to 1.20m x 1.20 m (i.e. sufficient space for a A0 poster). The description of each poster (title, authors, affiliation) should be sent before October 30th to inauguration@cism.ucl.ac.be .
