CSC is preparing for the procurement of next generation of ICT platforms, that will replace and complement the Sisu supercomputer, Taito cluster and the data processing platforms.

In this birds-of-a-feather session, CSC gathers insight on the needs and visions of the scientific community in Finland. These scientific cases and the technical expertise of the community will guide us in selecting the right mix of compute and storage capabilities, technological solutions as well as the right kind of software environments and services. We are also interested in hearing your views on the role of Finnish computational resources vs. European research infrastructures.

Both current and potential future customers are welcome to attend the event and get their voices heard! At the end of the day it is also possible to talk one-on-one with CSC personel. Please email if you are interested in this opportunity.
