Unknown (for me) HPC Users

It is always grateful to see new users in areas one never expected to see them happen.

It is the case of the "Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language "

Their mission:

"provide a platform for researchers and professionals from related areas to carry out frontline research, development and innovation in this area. " ( Cognitive Neuroscience of Language )

It has been operating sin 2008 but after hard months of work it will be finally inaugurated in 2010 in Guipuzkoa -a county with big HPC demand and a region with over the average investment in research- concretely in San Sebastian/Donostia.

These guys claim to have in place state of the art computing facilities perhaps including extensive and specialized databases from their experiments. A local company claimed to have won the procurement for the data processing center and other facilities.

In any case it is very good news. We can find similar centers for instance in Cambridge .
