Nine top European scientists will be presenting their results and advances in large scale simulations obtained with support of PRACE. Konstantinos Glinos, head of the European Commission e-Infrastructure unit, will outline the European HPC Strategy implementation. PRACE's strategy for a sustainable and persistent infrastructure 2015-2020 will be presented by Dr. Sergi Girona, Chair of the PRACE Board of Directors.
