Graph Neural Network Inference on FPGA

Graph Neural Network possess prospect in track reconstruction for the Large Hadron Collider use-case due to high dimensional and sparse data.

Summer-student report: Automation Tools for Invenio

Invenio is an open source framework, initially developed at CERN, but with many external users and contributors at this moment and prospects of growing even more in the future. Its nature as a digital

Summer-student report: Neuromorphic Computing in High Energy Physics

At particle colliders, more data are produced than what the experiments can store for further analysis.  This is why the incoming collisions are processed in real time by a so-called trigger system. At the 


With the pervasiveness of high-speed computers and processors, computer companies are  looking for new technologies to incorporate into their products and use as a competitive advantage  in the market. Two modern and rapidly growing techniques are quantum computing and the use 

Summer-student report: Performance monitoring using intel performance counters for HEP applications

The HPC service at CERN provides linux batch infrastructure to run high performance computing  applications that require MPI clusters.The HPC cluster  is therefore dedicated to run MPI programs.
