Ninth Annual SeRC Meeting

Olivia Eriksson, SeRC

The ninth annual meeting of the Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC) was held on the 14th and 15th of May 2018. The meeting took place at the beautiful Villa Aske . As the villa is in the countryside north-west of Stockholm, buses were chartered to transport participants between KTH and the venue.

Along with presentations about seven proposals for Multidisciplinary Collaboration Programmes that SeRC may support, the program for the meeting featured presentations by SeRC researchers, as well as external speakers:

  • Ericsson and e-Science by Kristina Gold, Ericsson,
  • OpenSpace by Anders Ynnerman, SeRC,
  • Computing in Science Education by Anders Malthe-Sorenssen, Center for Computing in Science Education, University of Oslo,
  • ELIXIR and e-Science by Niklas Blomberg, ELIXIR,
  • The search for cell assemblies in the brain by Arvind Kumar, Brain-IT, SeRC,
  • Data driven Material Science by Matthias Sche er, Fritz Haber Institute,
  • Deep learning for prostate cancer histopathology classification by Mattias Rantalainen, eCPC, SeRC,
  • Unsteady aerodynamics simulations by Prabal S Negi, SeRC,
  • EuroHPC by Erik Lindahl, Co-Director, SeRC, and
  • The WASP AI initiative by Anders Ynnerman, SeRC.

A SeRC board meeting and an Advisory board meeting were held in conjunction with the annual meeting, which was well attended with about a hundred people present, most of whom were SeRC researchers from KTH, Stockholm University, Linköping University and the Karolinska Institute. The plan is that next year’s annual SeRC meeting will be held in the spring of 2019 at another interesting location, so keep an eye on  for details about attending the 10th Annual SeRC Meeting!
