ISC High Performance at Night of Science

ISC High Performance at Night of Science

The ISC High Performance conference organizers will once again participate in Night of Science 2019, which starts at 5 pm on June 14th and ends at 6 am on June 15th 2019 in Frankfurt am Main.

Night of Science is a student initiative that started in 2006 as a peaceful protest against the then introduced tuition fees. From the beginning it was organized by students from every science faculty, such as chemistry, math, physics, computer science, biology, geosciences, biochemistry, pharmacy, psychology and medicine.

As a Night of Science attendee you can visit more than 70 talks during the course of the night. Everyone is welcome to visit the university's laboratories, which are normally closed to the public.

You will find further information about this event at the NoS-website.

This year Prof. Dr. Anna Frebel will open Night of Science 2018 with a talk titled „Auf der Suche nach den ältesten Sternen“.

ISC High Performance will have a booth presence from 5 pm to 12 am in Magistrale, Biozentrum. The booth offers you the opportunity to speak to the conference organizers about their program and also attending their free of admission ISC STEM STUDENT DAY on June 19, 2019.

In cooperation with ISC, Dr. Georg Hager will give a talk titled „Von der Wettervorhersage zur Kernwaffe: Supercomputer - was sie sind und was sie können“. His talk will be in Bio B1 Hörsaal at 19:45 - 20:30 p.m., the same building where you will find the ISC booth.

Dr. Georg Hager is a research scientist in the high performance computing group of the Erlangen Regional Computing Center at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany.
