The combination of supercomputers and technologies like for instance artificial intelligens is an essential cocktail, that will help to drive science and research activities and thereby strengthen Europe's competitiveness in the future. The European High Perfomance Computing initiative plays a key role in this.


How the mapping of the Danish web happens

Niels Brügger researches and writes about digital media history. In connection with his research, he has dived down into the Danish part of the World Wide Web and has analysed the historical web development between 2005 and 2015.

“It is a rather crazy project, and when I tell people about it, the reaction is often: “Aaarrhh, is that possible?” says Niels Brügger, newly appointed professor of Media Studies at Aarhus University.

“But it is!”



PRACEdays18 is the central event of the European HPC Summit Week, and is hosted by PRACE’s Slovenian Member ULFME – University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The conference will bring together experts from academia and industry who will present their advancements in HPC-supported science and engineering.


Technical Reference Group for High Performance Computing

The Technical Reference Group on High Performane Computing, known as HPC TekRef is a group, where HPC technicians from the local and national HPC centers can share experiences with each other. 
The purpose of the group is to facilitate  sharing og experiences and mutual inspiration between the institutions.

Members of the group participates in the yearly super computing conference (SC) in USA, and prepares afterwards a report to DeiC containing an assesment of future technologies. 


Gardar - a joint Nordic computing facility in Iceland

The following information is old and will not be updated. It consists of the presentation of Gardar from the DeiC web site at the time.

Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland have joined forces to establish a supercomputing facility in Iceland.

The computer, called Gardar (nhpc.hi.is), is a cluster of 288 nodes, each with 2 Intel Xeon CPU (2.53GHz) with 6 cores, which gives 3,456 cores and a theoretical capacity of 35 Teraflops. There are 24 Gbytes of RAM pr. node. The computer was inaugurated on 16. April 2012.
