GF-MaX HPC Workshop

European HPC initiatives and 2D materials research: collaborating and funding opportunities.

Fringe session: Tuesday, 24 September 2019 (14:30-15:30)

European HPC initiatives and 2D materials research: collaborating and funding opportunities

With new funding initiatives available in the field of high-performance computing (HPC) and materials research — this Graphene Week 2019 workshop is not to be missed. Led by Elisa Molinari, the Director of the MaX Centre of Excellence and member of the EuroHPC Research and Advisory board, this session will explore the upcoming advances and potential challenges in 2D materials research enabled by HPC.

The session, held at 14.30 on Tuesday 24, September, will explore several collaborating and funding opportunities available in this exciting area of research. This includes the potential support for collaboration with academia, industry and small to medium sized enterprises.

The session comes at a time when investments into supercomputing are high. In fact, EuroHPC is already pooling large investments to develop a world-class European supercomputing infrastructure. During the session, Molinari will illustrate why these initiatives should be of interest to the Graphene Flagship community and industry professionals.


Workshop / Tuesday, 24 September 2019 (15.30-18.00)

Graphene Flagship - MaX joint workshop on “High performance computing for 2D materials research"

Following the fringe session, Graphene Week will also host a parallel session from 15.30 to 18.00, to further discuss this interesting field of study. The MaX joint workshop on High performance computing for 2D materials research will examine the modelling of complex 2DM systems, properties of novel 2DM, the development of computational approaches and high throughput computation in 2DM research.

For this panel session, Molinari will be joined to chair the discussion by Vladimir Falko, Director of NGI and work package leader at the University of Manchester.

To join in the discussion, attend the European HPC initiatives and 2D materials research: collaborating and funding opportunities on Tuesday 24 September from 14.30. The panel discussion following the talks is an opportunity to ask questions and provide potential solutions to any challenges addressed.
