The relevance and impact of High Performance Computing (HPC) on simulation and modeling can be quite different depending on the specific area, but we are all confronted with the relationship between new methods and algorithms and their implementation in proficient codes. We invite you to join us in an exploration of the relevance of HPC as an enabler of leading-edge simulation and modeling. The focus of this webinar series will be on the science made possible by combining state-of-the-art methods with optimal exploitation of supercomputing resources.
