From June 24 - 28, 2018, the International Supercomputing Conference 2018 (ISC) took place once again in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The ISC is one of the biggest and most important events regarding HPC. JARA-HPC's scientists presented current research activities at their new booth and were actively involved in the conference.
Gummy bears are also making scientists "happy". Contrary to the commercially available gelatine treats, however, these are not intended for consumption. The soft fruit gums played an important role in the investigations of a team of scientists from the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Technical University of Munich. The researchers printed microelectrodes on melted and reshaped jelly bears. Until now, electrodes could only be applied to soft materials with great effort; the new method is significantly faster and cheaper. Medical diagnostics in particular could benefit from the investigations in the future.
This year, Dr. Andreas Lintermann from the SimLab “Highly Scalable Fluids & Solids Engineering”, JARA-HPC, jointly organized the mini-symposium “HPC-Based simulations for the wide industrial realm: aerospace, automotive, bio, construction, heavy…” on ECCOMAS ECCM ECFD 2018 in Glasgow, UK, together with Prof. Makoto Tsubokura Ph.D., Prof. Takayuki Aoki Dr. Sci., and Mariano Vazquez Ph.D.
For the second time, the Central Library of the Research Centre Jülich was transformed into the centre of the energy transition. Under the title „FORSCHEN:GESELLSCHAFT:ZUKUNFT“ top-class scientists and representatives from industry and associations reported on the status of energy transformation. The focus was on hydrogen as an important component of sector coupling.
On April 22, 2018, Dr. Andreas Lintermann from the SimLab “Highly Scalable Fluids & Solids Engineering”, JARA-HPC, participated in the first “World Congress of the Society of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) of the Nose & Airway” (SCONA 2018), London, UK.
