The Future of HPC: Israeli Innovation
PRACE Introductory Workshop

The PRACE Winter School is targeted at two separate user groups. The first is a half day mini-workshop, taking place on Monday morning Feb 10, 2014 from 8:30-13:00 entitled "The Future of HPC: Israeli Innovation", where we will showcase Israeli companies and researchers who are developing the future HPC technologies for the next 5 years. 

The other part (starting Monday afternoon) will be 3 days of an introductory workshop on how to use PRACE resources. This will be a hands-on workshop, limited to 60 people.

The workshop is organised by IUCC in collaboration with the LinkSCEEM-2 project. LinkSCEEM-2 is providing free access to HPC resources to scientists from the Eastern Mediterranean. Furthermore, LinkSCEEM also supports the regional user community through tailored training activities. 

The school is offered free of charge to researchers, academics and industrial users, residing in PRACE member states and eligible countries. It is the responsibility of the attendees to arrange and cover travel and accommodation. The school's official language is English.

For the 3 day workshop sessions: All attendees are expected to bring their own notebook/tablet (which in addition needs to be able to support ssh), but attendees will work in teams of two.

Social event
On Wednesday, Feb. 12 we are planning a tour of the Old City of Jerusalem.  Bus pickup will be from the Tel Aviv University workshop at 13:00, and we will have a guided 4 hour tour of some of the holiest sites in the world.  After the tour, we will have dinner at a nearby restaurant after which, a bus will deliver you all back to your hotels in Tel Aviv sometime around 22:00.
