NHR-Computational Physics Symposium

Virtual (Online)




The computational physics center of the National Alliance of High-Performance Computing (NHR) cordially invites everyone to the inauguration symposium.

The computational physics center is an initiative of the NHR which bundles the resources and competences of high-performance computing and makes them available to scientists of German universities.

Experts from different fields in computational physics, e.g. condensed matter physics, astroparticle physics or quantum chromodynamics, will present their research goals and nummerical challenges to startup the computational physics center initiative.
