The 14th USERS CONFERENCE gathers RES users to share knowledge and experiences on the use of HPC.

Join us for this exciting new experience that brings HPC science directly to you!

The Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) annually organizes a user meeting to report on the latest developments in the RES and provide relevant information on access to RES resources and on the European ecosystem in HPC. This conference is a meeting space for all users, support technicians, the access committee and the user committee. The duration of the day will be 2 days, starting on Wednesday, September 16, with plenary sessions and technical and scientific conferences by leading specialists in the area of ​​supercomputing. For the second day, Thursday September 17, the sessions will continue, oriented to scientific topics and technical topics within the HPC world, and a round table discussion on HPC towards society.

CALL FOR RES AWARDS: for the most oustanding scientific article. Please see below (Registration) for more info and to submit your application.
