European Urgent Computing
25. March 2020
ChEESE presents a workshop titled “European Urgent Computing” at EuroHPC Summit Week 2020 in Porto, Portugal on March 25, 2020.
Several high-impact phenomena require of on demand solutions of HPC applications under strong time constrains. Examples include, among other, affectations from geohazards (e.g. propagation of tsunami waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions), atmospheric or ocean toxic dispersal (e.g. incidental nuclear release, pathogen emission), or extreme weather events (e.g. triggering large flooding). Prompt reaction to these scenarios requires tier-0 computing infrastructures, complicated data workflows, and engagement with stakeholders formally involved in emergency management (e.g. the European Emergency Response Coordination Centre; ERCC) through shared protocols and policies. Interest to set up Urgent Computing (UC) services in Europe is growing trough the ChEESE CoE, PRACE and also recommendations of the EuroHPC INFRAG Access Policy Group.
Following the Workshop about Urgent HPC held during SC19, we would like to organize a similar one with European HPC stakeholders based on the need for these services in Europe. This half-day workshop would have around 5-6 talks of 20 minutes each, including other European HPC-related initiatives such as the ESiWACE CoE, VESTEC and Lexis projects. The event will finish with an interactive discussion panel on the subject of the need for HPC in urgent decision making. The feedback will be reported to the EC in a joint report or common white paper by various parties involved in this European workshop.
