The VSC Industry day is the second in a series of annual events. The goals are to create awareness about the potential of HPC for industry and to help firms overcome the hurdles to use supercomputing. We are proud to present an exciting program with testimonials of some Flemish firms who already have discovered the opportunities of large scale computing, success stories from a European HPC centre that successfully collaborates with industry and a presentation by a HPC vendor who has been very successful delivering solutions to several industries.
