DiRAC is the integrated supercomputing facility for theoretical modelling and HPC-based research in particle physics, nuclear physics, astronomy and cosmology.

This September, The University of Edinburgh is hosting the sixth Annual DiRAC Science Day. Researchers will present scientific results achieved with this facility, and technical support teams will meet with industrial leaders working to supply leading-edge technical solutions. The day will be splitted in a plenary session in the morning and two parallel sessions (science & technical) in the afternoon. The event will be closed by a poster session. There will be 2 prizes given to posters judged to be 'the best'.

Attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts for the science parallel session and posters. Please go to the Indico webpage if you wish to register and submit an abstract. The deadline for registration and abstract submission is the 26th of August 2016.
