Title: PRACE, the Research Infrastructure supporting Science and Industry through provision of High Performance Computing resources

Abstract: PRACE (, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, provides access to Europe’s world-class High Performance Computing Research Infrastructure (RI), enabling scientists and researchers from academia and industry to carry out complex and excellent experiments and simulations that address society’s grand challenges. This keynote will present the organisation of this RI and describe the services that researchers can get access to, with a special focus on the evolution brought by the recently started second phase of the organisation. We review some success stories made possible by the infrastructure to trigger some new ideas by researchers to make innovative use of this tool. Some key aspects for improving the chance to be awarded resources will also be covered.
