University of Iceland students join NORDUnet 2022

In today’s HPC session at the NORDUnet 2022 conference, Professor Dr.-Ing. Morris Riedel of University of Iceland gave a talk on Parallel and Scalable Machine Learning. Morris Riedel is a professor of computer science and teaches high-performance computing and machine learning to graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik.

Building on this, NORDUnet and professor Riedel took the opportunity of the conference taking place in Reykjavik to invite a group of 20 computer science students to attend the HPC session, with the opportunity to follow not only the talk from Morris Riedel but also talks on the challenges of exascale computing from Abdulrahman Azab and Ole Widar Saastad as well as the lightning talks plenary rounding of the day.

NORDUnet welcome this new generation into our community and look forward to their active participation in the future.
