National Competence Centre in HPC part of ISC 2023

Europe’s most important event in high-performance computing, ISC 2023, is already over. The National Competence Centre in HPC (NCC) presented its achievements so far, including successful collaborations with companies and other stakeholders in the field, and introduced the conference participants to current opportunities for collaboration with industry, public administration, and academia.

Lectures, panel discussions, as well as a section for exhibitors, which featured a total of 147 this year. This was ISC 2023, an event with its origins dating back to 1986. It took place in Hamburg, Germany, on 21-25th May and was attended by a total of 3,100 visitors.

Traditionally, the TOP500 list of the world’s 500 most powerful supercomputers was updated at this year’s conference. The first place was taken by the Frontier supercomputer, the second place belonged to the Fugaku supercomputer, and the third place was taken by the LUMI supercomputer, which maintained its position as the European number one and world number three for the third time in a row. It should be noted that thanks to IT4Innovations’ membership in the LUMI consortium, Czech scientists will also have access to this supercomputer.
