The 3rd BioSupercomputing Symposium

●Date : Feb 21 (Mon) and 22 (Tue), 2011 (Reception: night of February 21 (Monday))

●Location : RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (Kobe)

※The program details and registration of participation will be notified on the Web page as soon as they are confirmed.


The ten quadrillion speed computer“ 京(Kei)” was started to built.

 The nickname “Kei” in Japanese was chosen from public applicants for the Next-Generation Supercomputer in July, and RIKEN will refer to the Next-Generation Supercomputer as the K computer in English in the future. The first 8 racks of K computer were set up on Wednesday, September 29 (photograph on the right). The computation speed of these 8 racks is about 98.3 TFlops (teraflops) as the theoretical peak performance. More than 800 racks are to be arranged in the computer room at the completion.

 The K computer with about 0.5% of its total capacity was ranked 169 among the Top500 list presented in November, 2010.
