Each year, SC provides the leading technical program for professionals and students in the HPC community, as measured by impact, at the highest academic and professional standards.

The Program is designed to share best practices in areas such as: algorithms; applications; architectures and networks; clouds and distributed computing; data analytics, visualization, and storage; machine learning and HPC; performance; programming systems; system software; and state of the practice in large-scale deployment and integration.

Psi-k 2020 will be the 6th general conference for the worldwide Psi-k community, following very successful events held in San Sebastián (2015), Berlin (2010), and Schwäbisch Gmünd (2005, 2000, 1996).

The conference program will be structured around 3.5 days (from the afternoon of September 14, 2020 to the end of September 17, 2020), that will include 7 plenary talks, 42 symposia in 6 parallel sessions (~135 invited talks and ~170 contributed talks), and a MAD evening.

The European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC) conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems.  The HiPEAC 2022 conference will take place in Budapest, Hungary. Associated workshops, tutorials, special sessions, several large poster session and an industrial exhibition will run in parallel with the conference.

The European meeting for Experts in Digital technologies

Simulation . HPC/HPDA . Artificial Intelligence . Quantum Computing

The Workshop and Conference programs will be announced on April 1st, 2022.

This three-day event includes in-depths training on the flagship EoCoE codes and solvers, which focus on HPC simulations applied to energy domains. These codes and solvers are designed and optimized to run on the latest European pre-exascale machines, and will ultimately be scaled to the upcoming exascale systems.

The school is aimed at scientists and researchers from academia and industry from across Europe, it will allow participants to test their mastery of these codes on the EoCoE Software as a Service Portal, using the computing resources of the Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC).

An EoCoE team of researchers from several prominent European research centres will host the training sessions and supervise the work of School participants. This event will focus on material science, weather forecast and climate change plus the software and algorithm expertise.

A strong participation to the EoCoE School will be rewarded with certification and several awards. To evaluate whom this award will go to, participants are asked to describe their goals regarding the EoCoE codes on registration to the School, and also hosts will assess their participation during the sessions.

We are pleased to present to the European CoE community the first Workshop on Software Co-Design Actions in European Flagship HPC Codes scheduled in conjunction with ISC High Performance (ISC) on June 2nd in Hamburg, Germany. Organised by FocusCoE, SiPearl, Arm Ltd and NVIDIA, this workshop focuses specifically on software co-design actions applied to production-grade community-wide European flagship HPC applications. Scientists representing MaX, EoCoE, POP, BioExcel, TREX, and RAISE Centres of Excellence will share their experiences and lessons learnt in software co-design, which remains a ‘must-do’ to address a complex and dynamic HPC technology landscape with a rich portfolio of choices across CPU architectures and accelerators.

We encourage any in-person participants of ISC to attend the workshop live!

IPDPS is an international forum for engineers and scientists from around the world to present their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel computation. In addition to technical sessions of submitted paper presentations, the meeting offers workshops, tutorials, and commercial presentations & exhibits.

IPDPS represents a unique international gathering of computer scientists from around the world. Now, more than ever, we prize this annual meeting as a testament to the strength of international cooperation in seeking to apply computer science technology to the betterment of our global village.

ISC High Performance is focused on bringing the most critical developments and trends in HPC, machine learning, and high performance data analytics to conference attendees. Be it the conference program or the exhibition, the emphasis is on how to successfully apply these technologies in science, engineering and commerce.

The HPC landscape is changing to the demands of industry and science. As an event, ISC High Performance acknowledges and caters this change by bringing together HPC practitioners, users, and vendors to engage in discussions on technologies that didn’t seem possible a short time ago.
