SUCCES Days 2015

France Grilles

The GIS France Grilles and GRID’5000, the “Groupe Calcul” and the GDR ASR and the HPC regional centers organizes SUCCES Days: scientific meeting of grid, cloud and mesocenters users.

SUCCES Days will take place in November 5-6th at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris.

The meeting’s objective is double :
– scientific works, in all disciplines, realised with grid, cloud or mesocenters.
– evolution of tools, infrastructures and IT provides opportunities for users .

The registration and the projected program are available here.
