CSCS Orientation Course

 

Founded in 1991, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), develops and provides the key supercomputing capabilities required to solve important problems to science and/or society. The centre enables world-class research with a scientific user lab that is available to domestic and international researchers through a transparent, peer-reviewed allocation process.

In this workshop, the CSCS experts will introduce us to CSCS and the tools available and will guide us to a successful proposal submission.
