Pan-African Soil Challenge (PASCAL)

Workshop in High-Performance Computing (3 days) and Vadoze Zone processes (2 days); attractive side programme; Nov. 26-30, 2018; Register by June 30, 2018

PASCAL focusses at a secure and sustainable food production for the African continent as one of the most demanding global challenges.

The PASCAL is a project founded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the scope of the DFG Ideas Competition International Research Marketing.The prize-winning proposal was designed by Forschungszentrum Jülich and its competence centres HPSC TerrSys, ISMC, and Geoverbund ABC/J.

High-Performance Computing Training: The objectives of this applied course are to provide the
theoretical and technical context of terrestrial modelling in HPC environments utilising stand-alone
and coupled hydrologic, land surface and atmospheric models.
The Hackathon, a get-together design event of software development, brings together the present
scientific expertise to show sustainable futures for Africa’s food production based on its soil capital.
Side Programme: Learn more about Germany as a place for your career during the Side Programme.
