12th RES Users' Meeting & 7th HPC Advisory Council Conference

Users meeting
20 Sep 2018
The RES Users’ Conference is an annual event addressed to all the current and potential users of the HPC resources from 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. The plenary session will be a round table about open research data, co-organised by RDA Eurpe. In addition, the scientific parallel sessions and the poster session will promote the dissemination of highlighted research results of RES users. The local organiser of this meeting is the RES node Tirant, hosted in the Servei d'Informàtica de la Universitat de València

The 12th RES Users’ Meeting will be held jointly withthe 7th 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 event will take place in the conference room of ADEIT-UV (Fundació Universitat Empresa de la Universitat de València): Plaza Virgen de la Paz 3, València.

To arrive by taxi, you can indicate to the driver that the venue is in front of Santa Caterina church.

Further information

Poster presentation: We encourage young researchers attending the RES Users' Conference to present their work in the poster session. Proposals received until September 3 will appear in the book of abstracts. However, it is still possible to send proposals if there are available slots, and the posters received after September 4 will be listed on the website. Posters will be exposed during the coffee breaks and the lunch break on the 20th of September and should be DinA0 portrait format, in Spanish or English.
