Invitation and Program


High Performance Computing Center North cordially invites you to participate in the inauguration of Abisko, the new HPC2N supercomputer system. The morning program offers a tutorial and the afternoon program includes presentations by scientists using Abisko, state-of-the-art technical and R&D overviews and the formal inauguration of Abisko. The procurement of Abisko was made possible through a grant from the Swedish National Metacenter VR/SNIC and the support of Umeå University.
