Supercomputing for chemistry and materials science companies

Thursday 26.10.2023  |  9.00-11.00
Keilaranta, Espoo




Welcome to hear about LUMI supercomputer for chemistry and materials science companies!

LUMI, the flagship supercomputer in Europe and one of the leading research instruments in the world, is now available also for Finnish companies!

This Supercomputing for chemistry and materials science companies seminar will introduce how your company can benefit from cutting-edge research methods such as molecular dynamics and density functional theory simulations, powered by the LUMI supercomputer. We will outline what needs to be considered when working with a supercomputer and how you can get access and support for using LUMI. You will also learn about available funding models and how to test the suitability of the system free of charge before investment decision.

This event is a must if:

  • the computing resources available for your company are a bottleneck for applying state-of-the-art atomic-scale simulation methods in your R&D
  • you would like to accelerate your calculations by utilizing not just one, but multiple GPUs
  • you have considered the possibilities of using artificial intelligence to augment your data analysis workflows
  • you have considered using computational methods in your R&D process, but do not have the necessary expertise in-house

We invite you to spend a morning with us at the CSC office in Keilaniemi or online to introduce the LUMI supercomputer. We are very keen on hearing your ideas and challenges, so we have reserved ample time for discussion. After the seminar, we will offer those on site a lunch at the Plate restaurant, where we can continue the discussions.
