Keynote speaker


“Prospects for Quantum Computers – in the World and in Gothenburg”

 Göran Johansson: Professor at the Department of Micro technology and Nanoscience

In this talk, Göran will describe the basic functionality of a quantum computer and the present state-of-the-art worldwide for superconducting quantum computers, as pursued by IBM, Google, Rigetti Computing and others. He will also give an overview of what applications are believed to be the first to exploit the power of quantum information processing. In addition, he will outline the plans for building a quantum computer at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, which is made possible through a substantial donation by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

TetraPak: Ulf Lindblad
Sener: Pierre Huegenet

Fire and smoke simulations for large buildings

 Leader of Acoustics, Vibration and Fluid dynamics Discipline (AVF) and Project Manager / PMP® at SENER Ingenieria y Sistemas, Barcelona.

As part of its activities in the field of infrastructure design, SENER faces numerous challenges that require efficient design strategies with rapid “what if” analysis. Facing these challenges, the use of numerical modelling tools is a necessity that has demonstrated its value and effectiveness. SENER has been using modelling codes in the field of structural simulations, acoustics, vibrations and fluid dynamics analysis for more than three decades.

In the recent years, SENER has faced an increasing demand towards accurate CFD simulations of smoke distributions in buildings in case of emergency scenarios, with a clear emphasis towards security requirements and optimization of solutions and resources. The CFD codes used in this case, FDS, requires a computational power directly related to the size of the simulated space, and can be prohibitive in case of smoke simulations of large buildings on standard workstations. This presentation will show how those simulations are performed in SENER and how the HPC services provided by GOMPUTE has helped SENER in performing those large simulations and comply with the deadlines.

WASP: David Sands

The Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program

David Sands: Chalmers University of Technology


The Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP), launched in 2015, is possibly the largest single research program in Swedish history.  WASP targets strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment in autonomous systems, AI, and software development — three key areas for the Swedish industry. In this talk I will give an overview of WASP, and its future possibilities for the coming decade.


David Sands is Professor of Computer Science at Chalmers University of Technology, and head of the Information Security Division at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. He is one of the four original members of the WASP Program Management Group, and represents WASP at Chalmers.


Forze-Delft: Wouter Van Gijseghem

The Aerodynamic Design of the First Hydrogen Race Car in the World

The design of the new Forze race car is unique for a student-team. 500 000 core hours and 150 iterations later, the Forze VIII has an equivalent aerodynamic efficiency as an LMP car. Gompute enabled Forze to use a design pipeline similar to Formula One teams. With fully automated meshing and OpenFOAM scripts, the shape of the car could be optimized emphasizing the need for efficient CFD even more.

Rolls-Royce: Johan Lundberg

Virtual Ocean at Rolls-Royce Hydrodynamic Research Centre

CEVT: Robert Johansson
i3N/IPC - Institute for Polymers and Composites/ University of Minho: Miguel Nobrega

Computational Rheology et al. IPC/UMinho

 Miguel Nóbrega i3N/IPC – Institute for Polymers and Composites/, University of Minho, Campus de Azurém, Guimarães, Portugal

Nowadays, aiming an efficient use of resources, the advantages of employing numerical modelling tools to assist any design activity are consensual. For more than a decade, the Computational Rheology Group, from the Institute for Polymers and Composites / University of Minho (IPC/UMinho), has been developing and exploiting modelling codes to aid the design of different tools, with a special focus on polymer processing applications. During the last 4 years, most of the numerical developments done at IPC/UMinho are based on the OpenFOAM® computational library.

This talks aims to provide an overview of the computational rheology related work done at IPC/UMinho, in many cases in close cooperation with industry, the advantages obtained from the use of the developed computational codes and OpenFOAM® computational library, and the, most recent, gains and new achievements that result from the access to High Performance Computing facilities.


Swerea Mefos: Pooria Jalali

Computational Fluid Dynamic at Swerea MEFOS AB

It will include numerical models for different iron and steel making processes.
