Photo report from Systems Inauguration event


On April 24th, UPPMAX inaugurated the new systems, Rackham and Bianca, with an event at SciLifeLab. Around 80 people attended, hearing speakers talk and mingling in a uniquely broad poster session.

Here are some pictures from the event (courtesy of Slobodan Milovanovic).

Elisabeth Larsson, the director of UPPMAX, welcomed the audience.

The vendors (representatives from SouthPole, DDN, and Huawei) presented UPPMAX with a generous bouquet of flowers. 

Relief was palpable when the inaugural simulation executed without a hitch. An auspicious beginning for Rackham.

The UPPMAX director celebrated the new systems with delicious cake.

Biologists mixed with astrophysicists at the poster session, a heart-warming display of multidisciplinary scientific camaraderie.
