7th bwHPC Symposium

Published: 9 Jun 2021 by HPC Team Freiburg

The 7th bwHPC Symposium will take place this year on

November 8, 2021

and will be hosted at the University of Ulm.

Even though the current trends in the COVID-19 pandemic give some hope, we will plan the symposium as an online event in order to be able to offer all participants sufficient commitment and safety.

The event will focus on the presentation of scientific projects and success stories carried out with the help of bwHPC high performance computing or the BaW├╝ data federation, respectively. The event will also offer a unique opportunity to engage in an active dialog between the scientific users, operators of bwHPC services, and the bwHPC-S5 support centers.

The symposium will be free of charge and open to researchers from all scientific fields.

Up-to-date information on registration and agenda will be coming soon and will also be available on the symposium website:

We are looking forward to your participation.

We have looked at some hardware security tokens for bwIDM/bwHPC that can be used instead of a mobile phone.
