Sparse Days Meeting 2016 at Cerfacs, Toulouse

Sparse Days Meeting 2016 at Cerfacs, Toulouse

June 30th and July 1st, 2016


The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held at CERFACS in Toulouse on 30th June and 1st July 2016. These dates are one day later than originally broadcast so that people can attend the VECPAR meeting earlier that week in Portugal and also be able to attend the PMAA meeting in Bordeaux the following week.

Because of this juxtaposition, the overriding theme will be one of parallelism but as usual any talk that has an association with sparsity is welcome. The default length for a talk plus questions is 30 minutes but a different time is negotiable.

If you wish to attend the meeting, please complete the registration form provided below. The deadline for doing so is 31st May 2016.





Here is a list of hotels in Toulouse. The B&B hotel is very close to Cerfacs. The others are located in the centre of Toulouse. You should then take the underground line A to Basso Cambo and then the bus number 18 to the Meteopole stop (~30 minutes to go from downtown metro station to the Meteopole). The main gate at the Meteopole will then direct you to Cerfacs.

The H2OPE project wins the prize Joseph Fourier 2021 The prize, launched by Atos and GENCI, aims to reward the work of researchers, academics and industry in two strategic areas: Advanced Computing (HPC, Quantum, Edge) and Artificial Intelligence, and, in the 2021 edition , gives particular importance to Decarbonation. The 1st Prize was awarded to the H2OPE or “H2OPErability for safe and clean gas turbine engines” project from CERFACS in Toulouse.
