Welcome to HP2C


HP2C will end in Summer 2013; its follow-up initiative is called Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) and will cover the period 2013-2016.


Welcome to HP2C, the Swiss Platform for High-Performance and High-Productivity Computing.

The HP2C platform aims at developing applications to run at scale and  make efficient use of the next generation of supercomputers. Presently this will be the generation of computing technologies available in 2013 timeframe.

The  platform consists of domain science projects that are lead by  research groups at Swiss universities and Institutes of the ETH Domain, and supported by a core group of scientific computing experts in the Lugano area.

HP2C is jointly operated by the Swiss National  Supercomputer Center (CSCS) and the Institute for Computational  Sciences of the University of Lugano (USI). Project teams engage  in high-risk and high-impact application development for HPC systems at  scale.
