CINVESTAV, one of RISC2’s partners, hosted a virtual meeting with representatives from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and the HPC community, in Mexico on the 7th of December.
Mexico has a solid tradition in scientific research and education and has excellent human resources in the computer science field. Participants focused on promoting cooperation between supercomputing centers across the country. With that aim, they focused on the need to improve connectivity and engage on networks that allow for efficient and effective coordination among centers.
Leveraging from other cooperation-focused initiatives, like the Red Española de Supercomputación (RES) in Spain and PRACE at the European level, the Mexican HPC community is seeking to kick-off a nationwide collaboration network.
