EuroCC presents:

Are you a researcher in the social sciences or humanities seeking to leverage cutting-edge computational tools to advance your work? Join us for an enlightening event designed to demystify the world of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and explore its transformative potential for your field. The event is organised by the EuroCC 2 project – the 32 EU funded National Competence Centres for HPC.

Event Overview:

Date: 09./10. April 2024


Organiser: EuroCC 2 Project

About the Event:

In recent years, the fields of social sciences and humanities have witnessed a profound shift towards computational methodologies. From analyzing large datasets to simulating complex social phenomena, the use of High-Performance Computing has become increasingly indispensable in addressing the multifaceted challenges faced by researchers in these domains.

However, navigating the intricacies of HPC can often be daunting, especially for those unfamiliar with its technical aspects. That’s why we’re excited to invite you to an introductory event that will unravel the mysteries of HPC and illustrate how it can revolutionize your research endeavors.

Key Highlights:

  • Understanding HPC: Gain a foundational understanding of High-Performance Computing, including its principles, applications, and potential impact on social sciences and humanities research.
  • Exploring Use Cases: Discover real-world examples of how HPC is being employed to tackle diverse research questions in fields such as political science, economy, demography, anthropology, history, sociology, linguistics, and more.
  • Practical Guidance: Learn practical tips and best practices for integrating HPC into your research workflow, including accessing computational resources, optimizing code, and collaborating with HPC experts.
  • Networking Opportunities: Connect with fellow researchers, practitioners, and HPC specialists to exchange ideas, share experiences, and forge valuable collaborations.

Who Should Attend:

This event is tailored for researchers, educators, and practitioners in the social sciences and humanities who are curious about harnessing the power of High-Performance Computing.
