The RISC2 project has been recognised in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards, presented at the 2022 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC22), in Dallas, Texas. RISC2 was selected for the Best HPC Collaboration (Academia/Government/Industry).
Fabrizio Gagliardi, director of the RISC2, says “I feel particularly honored by this recognition on behalf of all the project members who have worked so hard to achieve in such a short time, and with limited resources, a considerable impact in promoting HPC activities in Latin America in collaboration with Europe”.
Editors’ Choice: Best HPC Collaboration (Academia/Government/Industry)
The RISC2 project, following the RISC Project, aims to promote and improve the relationship between research and industrial communities, focusing on HPC application and infrastructure deployment, between Europe and Latin America. Led by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), RISC2 brings together 16 partners from 12 different countries, including the National Laboratory for High Performance Computing (NLHPC), hosted by the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) of the University of Chile.
In this regard, Ginés Guerrero, executive director of the NLHPC, said that “For all of us who are part of RISC2, it is –without a doubt– an honor to receive this recognition for the work done by the consortium. In particular we, as NLHPC, feel very fortunate to be part of a project with such a relevant impact”.
