BalticLSC has been getting more exposure

The BalticLSC poster was displayed at the 21st International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems 2019 in Heraklion, Greece.

During the event BalticLSC lead partner and project manager Michał Śmiałek from Warsaw University of Technology has explained the project idea to the participants of poster sessions and answered any questions related to the creation of BalticLSC system. This particular activity has exposed BalticLSC to wider audiences, especially in the area of information systems.

BalticLSC system has a clear vision

By the end of the first semester three major outputs regarding design and development of the BalticLSC system have been produced: BalticLSC Environment Vision, BalticLSC Platform Architectural Vision and BalticLSC Software Architectural Vision. All three documents combined form a vision for the whole BalticLSC system.

Based on the aforementioned outputs, the creation and development of the system will take place in the forthcoming year. Later, it will be tested by various study cases acquired from project stakeholders and potential end-users and finalised in accordance with their comments and insights. These outputs serve as a starting point for end result of the project.

Documents could be found in the Downloads section under the subsection Project outputs. If you have any comments, ideas or insights regarding the vision of the BalticLSC system, please contact relevant project partner from the Contacts section.

Partners met in Sweden to proceed with the implementation of the project

Activities from the first semester have been discussed and closed during the partnership meeting in Storforsen and Lulea (Sweden) in order to move forward with the development of Baltic large-scale computing (BalticLSC) system. Now the partners are starting a new set of activities for the next six months, which include, but are not limited to, acquiring and creating the basics for the BalticLSC Platform and Software.

From the early 2019 partners have been greatly involved with various stakeholders and potential BalticLSC end-users to gain necessary insights regarding their needs, misgivings and likely benefits from high power computation (HPC) services. They have organised international and local workshops as well as individual meetings with potential cooperation partners and possible end-users. The insights gathered during this interaction then have been processed by the partnership and transformed into a vision for BalticLSC Environment as a whole and into a set of separate guidelines for the further development of BalticLSC Platform and BalticLSC Software.

With all that preparational work now finished, the partnership is entering into a new stage of the implementation of the project where the actual hardware is going to be set and the coding and programming activities will take place. Those activities are paving the way for the first system prototype, followed by the forthcoming validation of the system with using appropriate case studies. Additionally, the creation of BalticLSC handbook to transfer the knowledge about the system, its functionality and possibilities is due to start this semester.
