What is the SeRC Open Space at PDC?

The SeRC Open Space (also known as the SeRC room or SeRC research space) is a large open room at PDC where people can do research.

It is intended for informal interactions between researchers and PDC experts so researchers from various scientfic domains, computer scientists, and high performance computing (HPC) practitioners have a place where they can meet to share their expertise and assist and inspire each other's research.
