AWS Braket tutorial

This tutorial is an introduction to programming quantum computers with Amazon Braket. A first 90 minutes session will be an introduction on how to set up the system, including how to log on, store and retrieve data and results, launch queries, and the overall AWS interface. The first day of the tutorial is open to anyone at CERN.

WIT Talk with Maria Girone, Openlab CTO

This WIT Talk will focus on ideas on how we can create a welcoming environment for women and minorities working in HEP (e.g. at any stage of their career) and how to attract more women to HEP, computing, and Big Data/AI world: what are the main issues and what we can do better and etc.

oneAPI Cross-Architecture Programming Contest Winners Named

Intel announced the winners of the Great Cross-Architecture Challenge, a collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and Argonne National Laboratory, and run by CodeProject. Entrants used oneAPI and Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) to create applications in areas such as bioinformatics, cryptography, data analytics, education, financial services, genomics, healthcare, image processing, mathematics, molecular dynamics, particle physics, and ray tracing.

European HPC Project DEEP-EST Successfully Completed

The project “DEEP Extreme Scale Technologies”, funded by the European Union, has come to a successful conclusion. DEEP-EST started in 2017 to develop a modular architecture for High-Performance Computing (HPC). Leveraging a co-design approach with real-life applications, the DEEP-EST project paved the way for future exascale systems that will bring supercomputing to a new level.

Leading research institutes unite to develop breakthrough new simulation platform


BioDynaMo shows the power of 3D agent-based modelling

Today, the BioDynaMo consortium is proud to announce the release of BioDynaMo v1.0! BioDynaMo is a software platform designed to easily create, run and visualise 3D agent-based simulations. Agent-based simulation is central to a wide range of research fields, from biology to business and epidemiology to economics. Thus, this powerful new platform could play a key role in unlocking exciting new discoveries in a variety of important fields.

CERN Is Betting Big on Exascale

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) involves 23 countries, 15,000 researchers, billions of dollars a year, and the biggest machine in the world: the Large Hadron Collider. Even with so much organizational and mechanical firepower behind it, though, CERN and the LHC are outgrowing their current computing infrastructure, demanding big shifts in how the world’s biggest physics experiment collects, stores and analyzes its data. At the 2021 EuroHPC Summit Week, Maria Girone, CTO of the CERN openlab, discussed how those shifts will be made.

Intel Announces oneAPI Challenge Winners

Intel today announced the winners of the Great Cross-Architecture Challenge, a collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and Argonne National Laboratory, and run by CodeProject. The challenge attracted participants across five continents, demonstrating the growing momentum of oneAPI’s open, cross-architecture, multi-vendor programming approach.
