Extreme weather events caused over
casualties in the past 20 years.
times the people killed in German traffic in the same period.
times the number of casualties in the Bosnian war.
To predict just the weather in Europe, around
observations must be processed. Every day!
times the number of observations a person could read in a day (assuming 10 per minute).
Degrees of freedom are a measure for the complexity of statistics. Our high-resolution prediction model has almost
DoF in a single simulation.
times the degrees of freedom a person could update manually in one day (assuming 5 per minute).
"We need more women in science." "We support women in science." - that's said easily. But when we took a closer look, we discovered lots of open questions and hidden conflicts. We conducted a range of interviews, checked existing initiatives and sources of information - but still have questions. Take a look and tell us what you think!
Congratulations to Thorsten Höfler, who was honored for his pioneering contributions to large-scale parallel processing systems and supercomputers. We are excited to have such a high-caliber contributor to science among the ranks of our team. Read more here.
Registration is now closed!
43 hand-selected high caliber participants will join us for our first boot camp at Jülich Supercomputing Centre Sept 27 – Sept 30, 2022.
Hands-on work will allow them to learn more about the use of machine learning for weather and climate prediction in general, work with cutting-edge ML applications, test new workflow tools, and use one of Europe's fastest supercomputer!
If you want to try out Germany's fastest supercomputer, hang with ECMWF's and JSC' scientific staff and other high-caliber people from across Europe, or be one of the first to try methods that may usher in a new era of weather & climate prediction:
You may be a candiate for our Boot Camp taking place Sept 27 through Sept 30 at Forschungszentrum Jülich!
Eligible for participation are Master and PhD students. You should have a basic background either in meteorology or machine learning or both. Some limited knowledge of Python and standard ML frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow or PyTorch) is preferred. Ideally, you are also familiar with Jupyter Notebooks and git, though this is not required.
This event will be held in English.
There will be no registration fee, but travel and accommodations must be paid by your home institution (or yourself).
Register here until 15th Aug 2022
We at MAELSTROM are no poster child either, no. Our team is a great bunch of people from all over the world, young and old, with all different kinds of backgrounds – but also mainly male.
HPC is about to change science and technology, and experience tells, that whatever changes science and technology, will sooner or later change our societies, our culture. Our hopes are that it will change the world for the better. But for this aim, women's perspectives, skills and opinions must be a full part of HPC.
A related event worth putting in your diaries is the Women in HPC — ISC’22 Workshop. Y'all probably have the ISC 2022 on your radars anyway, so make sure to allow time on Thu 02, Jun, 2022 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.
