Latest news

Hartwig Anzt nominated at U Tennessee

Hartwig Anzt, leader of our Work Package 4, has been nominated director of the Innovative Computing Laboratory at the University of Tennessee. A part-time professorship at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology allows him and his team members to stay with MICROCARD nevertheless.

Workshop completed

MICROCARD had its first on-site workshop on 6 and 7 July at the Liry institute in Bordeaux.

MICROCARD is touring Europe

In June, the MICROCARD project was presented at the Teratec Forum 2022 on 14 and 15 June in Paris, and at the HiPEAC meeting in Budapest on June 20–22. We also presented results at the ECCOMAS meeting in Oslo, the ISC High Performance meeting in Hamburg, and the CMBE meeting in Milan.
