The sixth annual PC2 User Day will be held on 20th of October, 2023. The meeting will take place on-site. We cordially invite all interested people to join the event in person in building O (lecture hall O2) on our campus at Paderborn University.

The event is divided into three sessions:

In the first session, we give general updates from our compute center. One highlight for this year is the upcoming HPC system.

The following coffee break will be give you the opportunity to ask questions about our infrastructure and service, or get in touch with the people in charge.

The second session covers user-provided talks. The talks are from various domains and give users the change to present their research on our systems.

Finally, we present in the third session some upcoming development at the PC2 that you will be able to use in the near future.

The event is free of charge and open to everyone. Hence, please feel free to disseminate this information to other project members and other interested parties.

Interested people can join a guided tour through our computer center after the open-end at 5pm.
