The European HPC Summit Week 2018 in Ljubljana will gather main HPC stakeholders in Europe. Similar to previous years, this edition will also offer a wide variety of workshops covering a number of application areas where supercomputers are key, as well as HPC technologies and infrastructures.

European HPC Summit Week also offers a great opportunity to network with all relevant European HPC stakeholders, from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe.

The EU-funded EaPConnect Project is organising two workshops during this week:

  •  Deep learning and Medical Data Mining  workshop 
  •  HPC virtualisation workshop

Deep learning and Medical Data Mining workshop 

Date/time: Wednesday 30/05/2018 15:00-17:30
Location:    room Seminar 3
Convener:  Agnes Ansari, IDRIS (PRACE project)
