National High Performance Computing (NHR) Alliance Launches Scientific Conference Series

The first conference will take place on September 18-19 at the Zuse Institute in Berlin. The scientific conference series with annually changing focal topics is intended to promote the exchange of scientists on HPC use. This year's inaugural NHR conference will focus on atomistic simulation, life sciences and agent-based simulation.

With top-class keynote speakers and further lectures on this year’s scientific topics, the conference will provide the basis for a scientific exchange beyond disciplinary boundaries.

Keynote Speakers

  • Mohammed AlQuraishi, Columbia University New York
  • Rob Axtell, George Mason University College of Science
  • Helmut Grubmüller, MPI, Göttingen
  • Karissa Sanbonmatsu, Los Alamos National Laboratory

By presenting your research in a talk or poster, you are invited to initiate discussions with other scientists. NHR is made for science and so you are asked to provide impetus to make NHR meet your needs. Consulting, and operator staff will participate in the program, and there will be lots of opportunities for one-on-one meetings as well as panel discussions.

Since the end of 2021 the JGU is part of the transnational consortium of the national high-performance computers (NHR) South-West. Aside from Mainz other members include the Rhineland-Palatinate technical university of Kaiserslautern-Landau, the Goethe university of Frankfurt and the university of the saarland. Throughout Germany, scientists focusing on high-energy physics, condensed matter physics and life science can use MOGON NHR South-West for their research.
