The Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) has launched the third call for proposals to provide funds for the organization of scientific seminars during 2019. These events must focus on the application of supercomputing technologies in a specific scientific area. The objective is to promote the general knowledge about high performance computing among the Spanish research community, as well as to disseminate the services and resources offered by the RES and attract new users.
The accepted proposals will receive up to 3,000 euros to cover the speakers’ travel expenses, the use of rooms and audio-visual material, coffee breaks and lunch for attendees, among other costs. The deadline for submitting proposals is Tuesday, 22nd of January 2019 at 12.00h CET.
In the previous editions of this call, the RES has sponsored ten scientific conferences about such diverse topics as next-generation sequencing, nanotechnology, computational chemistry, modelling of combustion systems, earth sciences and financial mathematics, among others. Until the date of this publication, more than 400 attendees have participated in these events, mostly researchers but also technicians, industry representatives and university students.
