We are happy to announce that PC2 will host a PC2 hackathon from September 4 to 7, 2023 in Paderborn!

Do you have a code that you would like to run more efficiently on our HPC systems? Or maybe an old code base that you would like to port to a modern HPC language such as Julia? Maybe you would like to establish an automated workflow with continuous integration and testing in your software project? Our PC2 hackathon is the perfect opportunity to partner up with our scientific HPC advisors and work towards your very own project goal here at PC2 in Paderborn. You propose a project, and we will try to help you make it happen!

We are open to a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, software development (e.g. adding a new feature or form of parallelism to your code), accelerator programming (e.g. GPU and FPGA), performance engineering and optimisation, as well as project infrastructure support (e.g. CI and software containers).

If you are interested to participate, please get in touch with us at https://pc2.de/go/pc2-hackathon-registration and send us a short description of your project idea and any references to existing code. Out of all submission we will select the projects that are best suited for the format. You'll be notified whether your project was selected as soon as possible.

To allow for sufficient time between project selection and the Hackathon, we would ask you to submit your project idea until August 06.

We look forward to your submission and to realising your project idea with you in Paderborn in September!
