ChEESE’s participation in the General Assembly 2019 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU 2019) was a great success with various oral and poster presentations from different partners. The EGU 2019 major event took place in Vienna, Austria, 7-12 April, and it was a significant opportunity for ChEESE CoE to actively present an overview of its objectives, ambition, and work plan.
Arnau Folch, ChEESE CoE Coordinator based at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), showcased the project with a poster presentation entitled “A Center of Excellence for Exascale in Solid Earth”. The poster was presented on Friday 12 April 18, 08:30-10:15 during the session ESSI3.2 Earth/Environmental Science Applications on Cloud and HPC Infrastructures.
The poster described how ChEESE CoE will address extreme computing scientific and societal challenges by harnessing European institutions in charge of operational monitoring networks, tier-0 supercomputing centers, academia, hardware developers and third-parties from SMEs, Industry and public-governance.
The Coordinator mentioned that “the EGU 2019 was the perfect place for the first presentation of ChEESE CoE, as the event is attended by thousands of experts from different backgrounds and countries around the world”. He added “the ChEESE CoE overview presentation, as well as the other presentations done by partners attending EGU, received constructive feedback and helped ChEESE CoE’s vision become visible to the Geosciences Community”.
Representatives from ChEESE CoE partners were also present with oral and poster presentations talking about their specific projects and how they are connected to ChEESE CoE. You can have a look at the particular ChEESE-related presentations here:

About EGU and EGU General Assembly
EGU, the European Geosciences Union, is Europe’s premier geosciences union, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. It was established in September 2002 as a merger of the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG), and has headquarters in Munich, Germany.
The EGU General Assembly is a prominent annual event that brings together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU 2019 included more than 5.500 oral, 9.400 poster, and 1.200 interactive content presentations and attracted more than 16.000 scientists from 113 countries around the world. The meeting’s sessions cover a wide range of topics, including volcanology, planetary exploration, the Earth’s internal structure and atmosphere, climate, as well as energy and resources.
