HLRS at SC16 (booth #1743)

09 November 2016

The HLRS participates in this year’s Supercomputing Conference (SC16), which takes place in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, from November 13 to 18, 2016 at the annually recurring international exhibition and conference on High Performance Computing (HPC), Networking, Storage, and Analysis.

As always, the HLRS booth at SC'16 (No. 1743) promises to be worth a visit: The staff will welcome visitors on its booth featuring a brand-new layout and design and will be happy to answer all questions related to the manifold research activities and HPC projects, the HLRS scientists are currently working on. They will also provide information about the HLRS HPC-System Hazel Hen, which is currently is the fastest system in the European Union.

"Fast" is also the theme of this years exhibition highlight at the HLRS booth: Members of the Visualization Department have prepared an Augmented Reality demonstration of an airflow simulation around a Porsche 911, driving at the speed of 318km/h. Additionally, the scientists will present current research projects in parallel visualization, remote hybrid rendering and scientific visualization in Virtual Reality on a 3D backprojection. Visitors will be able to see, for example, how High Performance Computing can help city planners to design better and safer cities and how Virtual Reality can be of assistance in the participation processes.
