Abstract:   When I approach SMEs and tell them about the advantages that HPC and simulation could bring them, most of the time I feel a barrier between them and me. This barrier basically consist of the lack of understanding and the feeling that HPC must be expensive. In order to turn them into happy HPC users I have to address especially these two points. The latter nowadays is fairly simple to solve, since HPC can be very reasonably priced. Therefore the presentation will focus on the challenge, to inform the SMEs and work together with them in order to build up the necessary understanding that will lead them to assess the usage of HPC and simulation objectively in their specific situation.
