ISACA Luxembourg Chapter is privileged to welcome Dr. Sebastien Varrette, who, along with Dr. Pascal Bouvry, leads University of Luxembourg (UL)'s High-Performance Computing Center. He will share his expertise on September 20th, while also celebrating the 10th anniversary of ISACA Luxembourg.

The topic

Accelerating modelling and simulation in the data deluge era requires the appropriate hardware and infrastructure at scale, which makes supercomputers and High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities strategic equipments at the heart of major fundings in most countries.

The University of Luxembourg is active since 2007 to develop its own infrastructure and expertise in the HPC and Big Data (Big Data) domains.

After presenting an overview of the challenges and opportunities linked to these domains, the current state of developments will be briefly reviewed in the context of the national and European HPC strategy in which Luxembourg is starting to play a role.
