CloudLightning HPC Industrial Brief and Workshop – Trondheim, 15 January

On 15th January 2018, the CloudLighting HPC Industrial Brief and Workshop took place in Trondheim, Norway, organised by Prof. Anne Elster. At the event, the work the HPC-Lab members did as part of CloudLightning, which included looking at an OPM (Open Porous Media) application, was presented. The event also included a number talks by HPC-Lab’s current and future collaborators discussing future developments related to HPC, including applications, heterogeneous computing and AI.
