CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership, through which CERN collaborates with leading ICT companies and other research organisations. Together we work to accelerate the development of cutting-edge ICT solutions for the research community.

Upcoming events

Workshop: CERN-GÉANT-PRACE-SKAO kick-off workshop on High Performance Computing

Time: 9:30 AM Location: Location in CERN maps:

As a follow-up on the collaboration agreement that was signed on 22th July: http://cern.ch/go/DhV9, the kick-off workshop will take place online on 29th September from 09:30 to 20:35 (CEST): http://cern.ch/go/B9f8.

The coming workshop will identify challenges in facing High Performance Computing  integration. After a general introduction on overall goals, detailed discussions on the areas of work and related technical demonstrators will follow. The event will focus on discussions and team-building around four areas of work: training and center of expertise, authorisation and authentication, benchmarking and data access.

This kick-off is the first joint event of the collaboration. It will take place on 29th September and will be organized with the support of CERN openlab. The workshop will enable the launch of the technical activities of the HPC collaboration between CERN, GÉANT, PRACE and SKAO.

A word from the Director-General

Since its foundation in 2001, CERN openlab has been working to help accelerate the development of cutting-edge computing technologies. Such technologies play a vital role in particle physics,
as well as in many other research fields and domains of society, helping scientists to continue pushing back the frontiers of knowledge.

Fabiola Giannoti, CERN Director-General
