On behalf of the bwHPC initiative, you are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming 10th bwHPC symposium on

September 25th and 26th at the University of Freiburg.

bwHPC Symposium

If you would like to actively participate in the 10th bwHPC Symposium, you have 4 options:

  • Presentation (15 minutes)
  • Lightning talk (5 minutes)
  • Poster
  • Paper for the conference proceedings (4-15 pages)

Multiple contributions are possible (e.g. a poster and a presentation). We accept contributions in English and German language.

Researchers are invited to present scientific results and future projects within the framework of bwHPC and bwCloud, two initiatives that provide researchers in Baden-W├╝rttemberg with large-scale digital infrastructures. A particular focus will be on sustainability and energy efficiency in the fields of high performance computing, cloud computing and research data management.

The event will offer tutorials and scientific presentations along with opportunities to enter into a dialogue with senior researchers already making use of these significant computational resources.

The symposium is free of charge and attendance is open to researchers from all scientific fields. We welcome participants from outside Baden-W├╝rttemberg.

For registration, submission of contributions and further details, please visit the event website.

Please note the deadlines for submissions to the conference. In particular, for paper submissions to be included in the proceedings, the respective deadline is 31.07.2024.

We are looking forward to your participation.

Sincerely, Your bwHPC symposium team

FIDO2 and TOTP Token as a Second Factor for bwHPC and NEMO2

The use of a second factor to secure logins to services is becoming increasingly mandatory. bwHPC currently uses time-based one-time passwords (TOTP) or Yubico OTP as a second factor for SSH logins. We have looked at some hardware security tokens for bwIDM/bwHPC that can be used instead of a mobile phone.
