Vienna High Performance Business Day


Vienna High Performance Business Day

1 June 2022, 13:30-17:00
Online & TU Wien Science Center, Franz-Grill-Straße 9, Arsenal, 1030 Vienna

Supercomputing, or high-performance computing (HPC), is as an enabler of innovation, optimisation, and a driver of significant financial return. The event will provide insights into supercomputing as a tool for startups and SMEs as well as research and public administration to boost their innovation capacity, extract value from data, and stay ahead of competitors. 

Supercomputing meets AI and Big Data Analytics

The application of Big Data Analytics or AI with the power of HPC offers enormous potential for research, development and innovation as well as optimisation of products and manufacturing processes. Making these technologies available for wider use is a necessary step towards building a sustainable technological ecosystem tailored to the interests and needs of research, business and society.

The event will provide information about the many benefits that supercomputing can bring to business and research, inspire attendees about potential use in different sectors with concrete use cases examples, and highlight the support services available in Austria for organisations that want to approach the supercomputing world.

Meet the speakers

All our speakers are available during the event for your questions and to discuss your potential applications. Use the opportunity to get in touch with the community!

See the supercomputer

The event will take place at the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) that hosts the most powerful supercomputer ever installed in Austria. At the event you can peek behind the scenes of VSC and see the infrastructure that powers Austria's research and innovation!
