In celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 Feb, the Fusion Group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center highlights the past women speakers at the Fusion HPC Workshop, held virtually each year since 2020. This workshop covers all computer applications using High Performance Computing (HPC) in the field of fusion research.
The Ewing Event is an event held yearly by the UK Magnetics Society with a different theme related to magnets every year. This year the topic was The Road to Fusion. From all applications of magnetic technology, nuclear fusion offers perhaps the greatest potential benefit. The ability to generate emission-free electricity from abundant fuels has been a dream for centuries and an achievable goal for decades. The yearly event looked at the different routes to commercial fusion.
The 3rd Fusion HPC Workshop, hosted by our Fusion group and sponsored by the FusionCAT project, was organized as an online event on December 15-16, 2022. As in the previous two editions in 2020 and 2021, the workshop was devoted to computer applications using High Performance Computing (HPC) in the field of fusion research. This year, the workshop attracted a total of 171 registrations from 41 countries all over the world.
With a two-day event, the closure of the FusionCAT project has taken place. FusionCAT involved seven regional institutions from Catalonia devoted to developing industrial skills and achieving fusion energy and has been co-financed by the European Union Regional Development Fund within the framework of the ERDF Operational Program 2014-2020, with the support of Generalitat de Catalunya.
Hi! My name is Jorge Suárez Recio, I am from Oviedo, Spain, and I am going to explain to you an internship at the Fusion Group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) that I completed this summer from July 1 to August 30.
