BrainScaleS CodeJam Workshop #6

27th-29th January 2014, Jülich, Germany

The JUQUEEN supercomputer.

The Jülich Supercomputing Centre. With its 458,752 Cores, the new JUQUEEN reaches a peak performance of 5.9 Petaflop/s - the first of its kind in Europe.

The goal of the CodeJam workshops is to catalyze open-source, collaborative software development in computational and systems neuroscience and neuroinformatics, by bringing together researchers, students and engineers to share ideas, present their work, and write code together.

The general format of the workshops is to dedicate the mornings to invited and contributed talks, leaving the afternoons free for discussions and code sprints.

The theme of the 6th BrainScaleS/ FACETS CodeJam was 'High-Performance Computing'.
