Speaker: Ariana Torres-Knoop, SURF (Netherlands)


As an HPC center SURF is interested in understanding the possible directions, both from the hardware and software perspective, researchers might move towards in the future. Quantum computing is becoming a very likely pathway for many fields and as such we not only want to understand the role of HPC centers in this new paradigm but also help onboarding the interested communities. The aim of this talk is to present a general perspective of what the role of HPC centers is and some of our successful (and not so successful) approaches trying to engage with this world.
