Three artistic residences are foreseen in Bologna to work with the world of research on common European and global challenges for ecological transition and sustainable well-being. The artists will provide the critical reflection and new imaginaries for the ecological transition using the technologies, software and computing capacity of CINECA (including Leonardo).
Cineca joined EBRAINS, the digital research infrastructure (RI), created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project (HBP), to foster brain-related research and to help translate the latest scientific discoveries into innovation in medicine and industry, for the benefit of patients and society.
The HPC staff of CINECA thanks the Spack developers Massimiliano Culpo and Harmen Stoppels for their visit at our premises in Casalecchio di Reno (Bologna). During the two-day Spack event on February 13-14, Culpo and Stoppels delivered a comprehensive tutorial course followed by a mini-hackathon on Spack, the package manager for software configuration and installation on multiple platforms.
We are happy to announce that the registration is now open for CINECA GPU-HACKATHON-2023. The CINECA GPU Hackathon is a digital event, and it will be held on 12 June 2023 and on June 19-20-21 2023. The Application Deadline is 9 April 2023.
EuroHPC Joint Undertaking has recently approved Cineca expression of interest for upgrading Leonardo supercomputer, targeting an increase of 100 PFlops of computing capacity: upgrade named Lisa, after the universally known portrait Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.
The CINECA's supercomputer LEONARDO, jointly funded by EuroHPC and CINECA on behalf of Italian Ministry of University and Research, reached the 4th position in the Top500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world. This milestone rewards CINECA’s 50-year commitment to supporting research through HPC, and confirms Italy's role as a strategic asset in the building of the European HPC ecosystem.
The call for early access to Leonardo Supercomputer is already open. This call aims to provide selected users early access to the EuroHPC Leonardo exascale precursor system.
A new important dataset is now available on the Highlander Data Delivery System platform: Dynamical Downscaling with COSMO-CLM of historical (1989/2005) and future climate (2006/2050).
What is it and does it pay off? In this new podcast series, we are discovering the world of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Our mixed team with representatives from the Horizon 2020 projects EOSC-Pillar and SSHOC projects will talk about the present and future of EOSC. From the vision - to the mission - to the reality - with a focus on the latter.
