Image to illustrate theme of Event Maritime supercomputing

Join our inspiration session on supercomputing in the maritime and logistics sector on November 22nd, on location or virtually.

In this inspiration session, we will showcase how more computing power helps understand marine traffic in the North Sea, how crewing and scheduling can be optimized and what steps key players in the maritime sector are taking in an era of data and digitalization in the shipping industry.

High-performance computing is transitioning into the mainstream and accelerates innovation and business growth in all sectors. Imagine having the power of 10, 100 or more than 1000 laptops at your fingertips.

This event is jointly organized by the Flemish Supercomputer Center and MCA to inspire the potential of supercomputing in the logistics sector. Discover your part in the next steps and take concrete action. You can join this event on location, or you can follow this inspiration session virtually.
