Since 1990, a wealth of projects has been developed in Latin America to build advanced computing platforms with the key support of different European institutions. Projects such as EELA, EELA-2, GISELA, CHAIN-REDS, RISC, RICAP, OPENBIO and EUBRAZIL-CC constituted comprehensive initiatives of collaboration among national partners in France, Germany, Spain or Italy and most Latin American countries, and proved to play a key role to foster academic and industrial development. Today, the synergies that emerged from those collaborations effectively enable research, development and innovation with an important impact in the economy in both senses. This measurable growth generates new types of collaborations, following important aspects in Training, Education, Outreach, Industrial Partnership, Technical Transference and Government agreements. The purpose of this workshop is to offer a space for exchanging experiences and opportunities aiming at promoting and supporting new collaborations across the different countries of Europe and Latin America in order to foster collaborations between industry, universities, research centers and mixed consortiums. The First workshop on collaboration between Europe and Latin America was hosted by the ISC High Performance International Conference 2015 in Frankfurt, Germany. After this workshop, attendees propose to develop a 2nd workshop in 2018, but as a full day workshop.   Information about the First WHPCEuroLatam here
