1st NHR Conference - With Agent-based Simulations track

The 1st NHR Conference, that will bring together users of High
Performance Computing (HPC) on September 18./19. 2023 in Berlin, has a
track on Agent-based Simulation. There will be talks in this rather new
field by Rob Axtell and Gary Polhill; further contributions are very
welcome. If you are using HPC to run your ABMs, or would like to do so
to speed up your simulations, please consider submitting an abstract to
share your results, experience, and/or challenges encountered.

Background: NHR (Nationales HochleistungsRechnen) is the federally and
state-funded alliance of nine High Performance Computing (HPC) centers
for university research in Germany: The
conference will focus on selected topics each year. This year, apart
from Agent-based Simulations, the topics are Atomistic Simulations and
Life Sciences.

With top-class keynote speakers and further lectures on this year’s
scientific topics, the conference will provide the basis for a
scientific exchange beyond disciplinary boundaries. By presenting your
research in a talk or poster, you are invited to initiate discussions
with other scientists.

NHR is made for science and so you are asked to provide impetus to make
NHR meet your needs. Consulting, and operator staff will participate in
the program, and there will be lots of opportunities for one-on-one
meetings as well as panel discussions.
