Additional Information
After the seminar there will be a possibility to look at your case (e.g. code/application/project) with CSC experts. EVO ( meeting has been booked for remote participants: Title: 1st seminar on HPC Nuclear/Particle Physics at CSC Community: Universe Meeting Access Information: - Meeting URL - Password: csc - Phone Bridge ID: 592 0958 Password: 4276 - Skype (tm) (World-wide) See:
The aim of this event is to bring together both experimentalists and theorists in Finland, who work in the areas of nuclear and particle physics, so that they might discuss the usage and availability of present and future computational resources and the contribution such resources make to your current research.
