Containerization affects High Performance Computing

The use of container technologies for scientific applications is growing every day thanks to the evolution of the cloud computing landscape and the rapid development of tools for efficient deployment and scaling of services. Containerisation is now beginning to impact the world of high performance computing (HPC) in a major way. These technologies also support the portability and reproducibility of the results, which are essential for addressing many scientific problems and industrial applications, including the burgeoning field of biomedicine.

The meeting, organised by the CompBioMed Centre of Excellence, will involve presentations of diverse applications and services arising in academic, industrial and clinical contexts.
