Ivo Iliev gave a short presentation about the lab at a Matchmaking event of the Bulgarian and Norwegian IT businesses, part of the NORWAY GRANTS 2014-2021 BG 10 GREEN INDUSTRY INNOVATION PROGRAMME.

Nestum Maintenance

Due to a reconfiguration of the system’s networking, the machine will be unavailable tomorrow, 24.08.2017 from 14:00 GMT+2 to 16:00 GMT+2. As of this evening (23.08) all nodes are set to a DRAIN state, meaning that existing jobs will run, but no new jobs can be started. Unfortunately, if the job does not terminate until 14:000 GMT+2 on the 24th, then your data will be lost. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Magnetism of bilayer graphene with vacancies

Research held at the HPC lab in the Sofia Tech Park has demonstrated that vacancies in bilayer graphene can be used for controllable magnetization of the material. The results will be presented at the European Advanced Materials Congress (EAMC), which is a principal annual international conference in the field organised by International Association of Advanced Materials and VBRI Sverige AB during 22 – 24 August 2017, Stockholm, Sweden.
The head of the HPC lab, Prof. Ana Proykova will shortly present some of the results under the talk title “Magnetism of bilayer graphene with vacancies” on the 23rd of August 2017,
session Global Graphene Forum: Growth, Synthesis and Characterizations
Prof. Proykova is the co-chair of the session Growth of Carbon Nanomaterials

Fujitsu and partners visit Nestum

On 26.07.17, Fujitsu and some of their partners hosted a seminar in Sofia Tech Park and paid a short visit to the HPC Lab as Nestum‘s computational nodes are Fujitsu machines. The guests were given a short lecture about the machine and were shown examples of simulations, illustrating the work that’s being done in the lab.
