Placing users at the centre of the design of HPC Infrastructure has been always a challenging effort. With the democratization of computational usage in different fields of biomedical science, rethinking and reshaping HPC is a necessity. Regardless of the context (large university supercomputer, small company cluster or anything in between), considering the usage before design or maintenance is even more critical.
HPC resource mutualization is also an under-appreciated aspect from a user perspective. Balancing the needs and requirements for an efficient HPC infrastructure will be the central topic of this HPC-CH conference.
