CUG 2012



Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany invites you to attend CUG 2012. The conference theme Greengineering the Future reflects the fact that Stuttgart is the capitol of Baden-Württemberg which is the place where most engineering innovations worldwide have been created. Making these innovations turn the world into a greener one is the key challenge of the future. The conference will be held at the center of Stuttgart at the Maritim Hotel from April 29 – May 3 2012.

HLRS was created in 1995 as a spinoff of the computing center of the University of Stuttgart. HLRS was Germany's first national HPC Center providing researchers from all over Germany with access to leading edge technology in HPC. Right from the start HLRS created a subsidiary together with Porsche and T-Systems to provide supercomputers to industry. Most recently we have established the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS) pooling researchers, automotive companies, hardware vendors and ISVs for precompetitive research in automotive simulation. Today HLRS is the leading European center for computational engineering in research and industry. As a main partner in the European HPC framework PRACE it provides users all over Europe with the most recent HPC technology. Starting in 2011 HLRS will operate a 110.000 core Cray XE6 which will be upgraded in 2013 to an expected 500.000 core system.

CUG 2012 will be the forum for Cray users and developers to exchange their expertise, problems, and solutions. Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences, and meet key members of the Cray team. Social events will allow communicating in a relaxed atmosphere. A visit to the Mercedes Museum gives participants a view of 125 years of automobile development. From cars to stars!

In order to take advantage of the lower fee, we encourage you to register early. You will find all the necessary information about the venue and Stuttgart. Registration will be open by December 1, 2011.

We look forward to welcoming you to Stuttgart, the automobile center of Europe, where Daimler, Porsche, and Bosch made history and are about to launch their new green technology initiatives.
