About the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS)
The Barcelona Supercomputing Center is the national supercomputing centre in Spain. The BSC-CNS specialises in high performance computing (HPC) and its mission is two-fold: to provide infrastructure and supercomputing services to European scientists, and to generate knowledge and technology to transfer to business and society.
It is a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence and a first level member of the European research infrastructure PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). The BSC-CNS also manages the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES).

About the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES)
The Spanish Supercomputing network (Red Española de Supercomputing - RES) is a distributed supercomputer structure, the aim of which is to meet the needs of research groups in Spain. Nodes on this network are located at the BSC-CNS in Barcelona, the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Madrid Supercomputing and Visualisation Centre), the Canary Islands Astrophysics Institute (IAC), the Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ITC) and the Universities of Cantabria, Malaga, Valencia and Saragossa. The RES’s technical management is coordinated by the BSC-CNS and answers the scientific community’s growing need for supercomputing.
