EPS Survey – Open Science and Career Development

European Physical Society would like to invite as many physicists in Europe as possible to express their views on Open Science and Career Development:

https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/EPSOS

The survey is carried out in collaboration with the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers (Eurodoc) and with the Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP) of the European Commission. The survey was specifically formulated to suit the European physicists community, with a particular focus on young physicists. The results of this survey will be used to guide European policy on open science and to improve the career development of researchers.

The deadline for completion is 15 April 2018.

2018 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Computational Physics – deadline 30-MAR-2018

EASC 2018

This is the 5th conference in the series. EASC typically contains many talks of interest to a computational physicist, e.g. computational plasma, CFD, MD, ab-initio, thermo-mechanical problems, materials science, flood predictions, etc. There are always top class key speakers, and updates on the latest HPC technology.

The event is organised by EPCC who maintain ARCHER , the UK national HPC system.
