Target group: The conferences are aimed at all the RES users, potential users of the RES and PRACE facilities. Also it is interesting to  students or scientifics interested in the topics o science and supercomputing services. Finally it is also important for companies involved in the High Performance Computing technology. INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTER PRESENTERS AT THE 9th RES USERS' MEETING The posters format is preferably A0 (landscaper or portrait orientation). The printed poster must be handed over to the organisers during the registration (from 9h to 10h of 23rd September). The poster exhibition will be from 11.40h to 12.00h of 23rd September.

Cost: Attendance to the conferences was free of charge. Nevertheless registration was compulsory due to organization tasks.
