bwHPC Symposium 2017

October 4th 2017
10:00 - 16:40
Alte Aula (directions)
Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen



The symposium focuses on the presentation of scientific computing projects as well as on the progress and the success stories of the bwHPC realization concept. The event offers an unique opportunity to engage in an active dialogue between scientific users, operators of bwHPC sites, and the bwHPC-C5 support team. The symposium is free of charge and open to researchers from all disciplines with an interest in the bwHPC concept for the state of Baden-Württemberg. Information about the venue and directions can be found HERE. The lecture hall ‘Alte Aula’ is located at the heart of the historic city center of Tübingen only a short walk from the train station.


As the number of participants is limited an obligatory registration is required. We encourage a timely registration and would appreciate an active contribution in the form of a poster.




The deadline for submission and registration is September 15th 2017.
