Empowering weather and climate forecast
Hamilton gets Medal of Freedom from Obama
MAELSTROM thinks that both female and male brains should help shape our future.
Yet more obstacles than we thought prevent women from achieving in science.

MAELSTROM Hackathon II and Workshop II moved to November

2023-03-03, Jan Mirus

Our second hackathon and our second dissemination workshop, which were both originally planned for spring 2023, will be held in the week of November 6th, 2023. Please adjust your calendars and save the date. More information will follow soon!

MAELSTROM's take on women in science

2022-11-17, Jan Mirus

"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!

Thorsten Höfler awarded Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award

2022-10-04, Jan Mirus

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.

Boot Camp registration now closed

2022-08-15, Jan Mirus

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!
