Academic Supercomputing in Europe
In 1994 NCF started with a yearly overview of the policies and infrastructures in Europe in the academic supercomputing field. The idea originated from its contacts with European sister organisations. Several of these organisations provided valuable information about the national policy and facilities for academic supercomputing and high-speed networking in their respective countries. This initiave was gradually expandeded to also include major supranational initiatives and facilities (also networking facilities, such as programmes and action lines of the European Union. Ofcourse facilities available at multinational agencies or co-operations of research institutes of several countries are also included.
The main goal of to inform people involved in defining, outlining and implementing the national high-performance computing policy for the academic community about similar developments and initiatives in other European countries. The general idea is that this knowledge might be helpful during national, or regional, decision processes.
We expect, however, that this information will also be worthwhile for other people interested in high-performance computing.
