RISC2, in collaboration with EU-LAC ResInfra, organized the workshop “HPC for International Collaboration between Europe and Latin America”, in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2022 Conference in Heidelberg, Germany. About 15 people participated in the workshop, which took place on September 6, 2022.
The workshop aimed to exchange experiences, results, and best practices of collaboration initiatives between Europe and Latin America, in which HPC was essential, and to discuss how to work towards sustainability by reinforcing the bridges between the HPC communities in both regions. The workshop was organized by our partners Esteban Meneses from CeNAT, Fabrizio Gagliardi from BSC, Bernd Mohr from JSC, Carlos J. Barrios H. from UIS, and Rafael Mayo-Gacía from CIEMAT.
The workshop was opened with a keynote by Daniele Lezzi from BSC who reviewed the EU-LATAM collaboration on HPC. Six more presentations highlighted research work from Latin America and collaborative work between organizations on both continents.

The RISC2 project supported the IEEE Cluster Conference, a major international forum for presenting and sharing recent accomplishments and technological developments in the field of cluster computing, as well as the use of cluster systems for scientific and commercial applications by organizing a networking event at the end of the workshop day.
Our partner Esteban Meneses, from National High Technology Center in Costa Rica and one of the RISC2 partners, was one of the Publicity Co-Chairs of the IEEE Cluster 2022 Conference.
