Cover: inSiDE Spring 2017

Innovatives Supercomputing in Deutschland - Innovative Supercomputing in Germany

inSiDE is published twice a year by The GAUSS Centre for Supercomputing (HLRS, LRZ, JSC). It includes information about events in supercomputing in Germany and gives an outlook on workshops in the field.

Readers are invited to participate in these workshops which are part of the PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) and hence are open to all European researchers.
