KTH, together with the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC), and industrial partners has recently purchased the most powerful supercomputer in the Nordic countries, named “Beskow” after Elsa Beskow. Beskow provides unprecedented computational power of close to two Petaflops (2*1015 floating point operations per second). The system will provide a major push for Swedish academia in areas such as fluid dynamics, climate modelling, plasma physics, neuroscience, materials science and molecular simulation, as well as for industry.

This event will inaugurate Beskow officially and will include a scientific workshop presenting examples of the types of research that will be performed on Beskow.

Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending please contact Erwin Laure.
