11th RES Users' Meeting & 6th HPC Advisory Council Conference

Users meeting
28 Sep 2017
Santiago de Compostela (Spain)
The RES Users’ Conference is an annual event addressed to all the current and potential users of the HPC resources of the Spanish Supercomputing Network.

The Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) organizes every year a users’ meeting to inform about RES resources and procedures. This event aims to be a discussion forum among RES users, technical staff, the access committee and the users’ committee. In addition, the scientific parallel sessions and the poster session will promote the dissemination of highlighted research results of RES users. The local organizer of this meeting is the RES node Fundación Pública Galega Centro Tecnolóxico de Supercomputación de Galicia (CESGA).

The 11th RES Users’ Meeting will be held jointly withthe 6th HCP Advisory Council Conference. The objective of this event is to encourage an interactive exchange between companies and organizations with the final HPC users. It will address a wide range of disciplines and interests such as Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Exascale Era, Big Data, etc. It will include technical, keynote and sponsor sessions.


The meeting will take place in the facilities of the Centro de Supercomputación de Galicia (CESGA) and in the Instituto de Investigaciones Agrícolas de Galicia (CSIC), in Santiago de Compostela.
