Workshop “Big Computing for Smaller Entities” as part of the Baltic Large Scale Computing project


On 20th May 2019 the “Big Computing for Smaller Entities” workshop will take place as part of the international project Baltic Large Scale Computing, coordinated by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology. BalticLSC is an Interreg BSR project dedicated to solve the issue of smaller companies and institutions suffering from the lack of proper access to super computing resources and necessary expertise to use them in the Baltic Sea region.

When: Monday, 20/05/2019, 9:00 – 17:00 (possible additional date in May) 
Where: Warsaw University of Technology 
Registration until: 10/05/2019 
Confirmation of participation: 13/05/2019 
The cost of participation: free 

Who are the workshops for?

Workshops are for everyone interested in creating innovative products and services that require advanced data processing or interested in providing computing power.

  • Are you a small company, independent research center, startup, innovator, student or scientist?
  • Would you like to use complex data processing for your daily activities, but you lack knowledge, competences and/or resources to fully embrace it? Maybe your company has periodic overcapacity? 
  • Maybe you design data processing algorithms that you would like to share with others? Maybe you have an idea for an innovative way to analyze and data process?

If you answer “yes” to any of the above questions, it means that these workshops are certainly for you.

What’s in it for me?

  • Possibility of establishing cooperation with a large international project that supports innovative units.
  • Possibility to influence the shape of the BalticLSC.eu system and adapt its functionality to your own needs for data processing.
  • Priority in getting free access to the BalticLSC.eu system.
  • Priority in access to free training in creating applications for processing
    data.

Speakers

Michał Śmiałek – BalticLSC consortium coordinator and experienced practitioner, academic lecturer and trainer in the field of software engineering. He is the author of several books, over 100 articles and conducted several thousand hours of training for the industry.
