"The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is an advanced international laser research infrastructure. It provides the scientific community with access to a new generation of laser technologies delivering sources of ultra-intense high-energy particle beams and ultra-bright radiation in the shortest timescales. These radiation sources are used in multidisciplinary applications in a wide range of disciplines including materials science, engineering, medicine, biology, chemistry, and astrophysics.
During the years, each facility has developed particular skills and expertise focusing on specific scientific areas. This is also the way each ELI pillar has approached the Scientific Computing and High Performance Computing (HPC) topics where each pillar has developed skills, expertise and even infrastructure aiming to support facility-specific scientific challenges.
The aim of the Workshop is to bring together a group of ELI experts, presenting the HPC challenges and strategies and to identify ELI ERIC HPC requirements that could support future users pre-, during-, post-experiments."
